If you're going for the skiing I'd probably wait until after the first of the year, although I haven't checked their snowfall/trails open info lately. I always prefer to stay in the "old town" part, not the fancy new part, but that's a personal preference.

I don't really recall any bad meals there, but I really do like "Baked In Telluride". For dinner I'll usually split something with a friend. Really nice pastries too. It's been two years since I was there, sorry I can't think of anyplace else right now.

Baked in Telluride was destroyed by fire in Februrary of this year.

As for lodging, anyplace in Telluride is just way damned expensive. Personally, I consider the place overpriced and overrated as far as the town and resort go. The skiing can be great, but so far this is not promising to be a good snow year for the southern half of Colorado.

A far better experience is to stay in Ouray and drive over to ski Telluride during the day. Ouray is far quieter, not overrun with jerks, and can be considerably cheaper.

I liked Telluride a hell of lot more when it was still a mining town. Not crowded, much nicer people, cheap, and isolated. All gone now.

In my opinion if you are going to go to Telluride stay in Telluride. Then again I like to be where the action is and I would suspect they have better restaurants then Ouray. Plus you can most likely go out have dinner and not have to worry about driving after so you can have some adult beverages.
