Mountain Village

Mountain Village is comparably a world apart from other towns – beautifully orchestrated, planned and overflowing with charm, and sophistication. Situated at 9,545 in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, and connected by a free gondola to picturesque Telluride. Mountain Village became officially incorporated as a town in 1995. The Mountain Village core enjoys access to portions of the ski area within its base area. The developers set out to create a European style village that is pedestrian friendly and includes a commercial core that is home to restaurants, shops, ski school, and bike and ski rental shops. Mountain Village also hosts a beautiful golf course, and trail network.

Ouray is a sister city with Telluride and shares many similar elements. A historic Victorian era gold mining town set in a stunning alpine cirque. Ouray and Telluride are actually connected by historic mine tunnels and workings, although these have not been open or safe for travel for many years.

In addition to the full compliment of outdoor recreational opportunities Ouray is a geo thermal center. Many developed natural hot springs exist in and around Ouray.
