The town of Telluride was founded in the late 1800s with a mining boom. The
town began to take on quite a character of its own, giving rise to a hotel and
opera house, as well as brothels, saloons, gambling halls and the like. It was
indeed a frontier mining town with all the trappings. And with all the gold
and silver, the local bank made a tempting target, and was purportedly the
site of Butch Cassidy's first heist, netting him a take of $24,580.
Today, Telluride's gold is its white powder.
Telluride is located 127 miles southeast of Grand Junction and 125 miles from
Durango, CO. Four airlines (American, Continental, United and America West)
from six major cities (Chicago, Dallas Fort Worth, Houston, Newark, Denver and
Phoenix) fly into either Montrose (65 miles from the resort) or Telluride (6
miles from town).
