Telluride is a historic town in San Miguel County, Colorado. The population of this county seat was 2,221 as of the 2000 U.S. Census. It is the most populous town in San Miguel County. The Telluride Historic District includes a large portion of the town and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of Colorado's 20 National Historic Landmarks, as it was a former silver mining camp. Telluride covers 0.7 square miles of total area, all land, and sits at an elevation of 8,750 feet above sea level. The Telluride, CO Business Directory can lead you to the Telluride Ski Resort, which is the main attraction for the town in the winter.
Skiing isn't the only attraction the city has to offer, as other outdoor activities are available in the summer. You can go mountain biking, hiking, sightseeing and river rafting, making tourism a huge part of the economy. If you look at the Telluride, CO Yellow Pages, you can find the location of the Telluride Film Festival, which started in 1974 and is operated by the National Film Preserve. The program usually features new films and is well-situated on the international film festival calendar, operating just after the Cannes Film Festival, but before the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival.
