When planning a visit to Lumière Telluride, you should know that Telluride is a fantastic destination much of the year and really only slows down in the late spring, right after the ski season ends. In April and May, many things close and the weather is not conducive to doing much. Otherwise, from late spring through fall there is exceptional outdoor recreation, including hiking, excellent mountain biking, horseback riding, fly fishing and white-water rafting. Telluride is famous for its summer festivals, many focused on music or food, with something happening just about every weekend. From early December through March is prime ski season, the thing the town is best known for, and Telluride is an exceptionally varied mountain, and more so than any ski resort in the country. It offers a lot of skiing for every ability, from beginner to high-level expert. While most resorts skew one way or another, there is no gap here with world-class bump skiing, plenty of groomers, an entire section just for advance intermediates, uncommon blue glades, bowls, double-black chutes and precipitous hike-to terrain.
