The FREE gondola system that links Mountain Village to the town of Telluride is fantastic. The views are fantastic and there is really no need for a car due to the gondola system.

No charge for all gondola rides as they are considered public transportation to reduce traffic and parking in Telluride ... Great Views from the Gondola .. You can get off and on at your leisure

What a gorgeous way to see the colors of October in Colorado! The Gondola is free transportation courtesy of the City and so many people utilize it, hikers, bikers and tourist. The view is spectacular. Don't miss it!!

The gondolla runs year round, but has different hours in summer and winter so you should go to the website to check hours of operation.
