Ride from Denver to Telluride at night?

We arrive to Denver at 11pm. We thought we could drive to Telluride that same night (3 of us) and arrive the next morning. That ways we would have an extra day in Telluride/vicinity to enjoy. We would enjoy the ride back to Denver 8 days later, during the day and taking our time.
Is it OK to drive to Telluride at night. We heard that deers can be an issue.
Any comments????
Thank You.

Durango to Telluride in Winter - Open Roads?  (3 Answers)

Okay, I know, this is a dumb question, but are the roads open from Durango to Telluride in winter? I am interested in a ski trip to Telluride and I see that Montrose is the closest airport, but air fares there are fare higher than Durango. So, I thought I'd fly into Durango. Yes, I assume the road is open to Telluride, but I am aware that some roads in Colorado over passes and such are closed for winter, and I am not familiar with this area enough to know what's open and what's closed. In fact, the Telluride ski are website only refers to Montrose as being the airport to fly into, and with cheaper flights to Durango, surprised that Durango is not mentioned. So here I am, asking that if I fly into Durango, will I be able to drive to Telluride? Thanks.

Also, what is the drive time between Durango and Telluride?

Questions about Telluride  (2 Answers)

Hi guys,

I live in Santa Fe, NM and my parents will be visiting me from Scotland in a few weeks. I'd like to take them on a wee road trip up to Colorado - the places that I'm looking at are Aspen, Telluride, and Ouray. I've been to Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, and Durango so I'm kinda familiar with the roads... and the amount of deer/elk that I can expect to run in front of me :-)

My old man really wants to go to Aspen - I think he's watched too many movies and expects to bump into Hollywood's A-list. None of us ski! Well, I can ski, but I can't stop. We're not looking for fancy museums or art galleries - just nice pictureseque towns, with some local shops, decent bars with live music, not too expensive*. What would be your order of preference for our trip...

TRIP 1: Drive from Santa Fe->Silverton->Ouray->Telluride->Santa Fe (2 or 3 nights).
TRIP 2: Drive from Santa Fe to Aspen (2/3 nights).

If TRIP is the preference would you recommend spending both nights in Telluride, both nights in Ouray, or one in each?

Thanks in advance for any replies :-)


* by expensive, I mean I don't want to spend more that200 on a hotel room and50 a head for a meal.

Apartment Swap

My girlfriend and I are looking to swap apartments in March, around the 12th, her B-day, for about a week. Our time period is flexible as well is the lenght of stay. We are looking to swap for a place in Telluride. We love to ski and be on the mountain and are looking forward to hanging out in Telluride.
We live in Brooklyn, NY in a great neighborhood that has loads of cool shops and tons of great restaurants. The subway is two blocks away and lower Manhattan 10 mins by subway and taxi, (a distance of 1.2 miles). Our place is a two bed two bath duplex with a private roof deck. We have sattelite TV and WiFi.
I am 35 and a Art director of TV commercials and my girlfriend is 27 and works on Wall St.

relocation advice

I'm moving to Telluride in November and I was hoping that someone could give me some advice on the move. When and where to look for a place to live (what's reasonable rent there? I've lived in Boston and Portland so my judgement is a bit skewed), jobs ( i have a few prospects, but i can always use more), cheap place to stay the night I get in, etc. Basically any advice at all would be helpful!
