TELLURIDE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Telluride Ski Resort was named one of the top five resorts in the West. That means it's one of the best west of the Mississippi.
This ranking came in from Ski Magazine readers.
The resort jumped a couple spots from last year's rankings when they were ranked as the 8th best ski destination.
Vice President of Mountain Operations says getting this ranking will help their numbers this year.
"The readers of Ski magazine use that as a way to make their decisions and if people have never been to Telluride, this would be a reason why, they see some of the things they've ranked high in, and the train here, and the scenery and it's something that's special," said Jeff Proteau, VP of Mountain Operations.
Telluride Ski Resort was ranked number one for its character.
While it placed in the top 5, it wasn't the highest ranked resort in Colorado. Snowmass took home that title this year.
