The Telluride Sleighs and Wagons sets itself apart from the competition by offering a more unique winter and dining experience. With four generations and counting, the Aldaroso family has been giving unforgettable experiences to many families by sharing their heritage and serving hearty Spanish-inspired meals.
The Telluride Sleighs and Wagons shares a rich past, as it was established in the 1920’s (known then as the Aldaroso Family Ranch), in honor of the family who emigrated from Spain. It originally served as a sheep ranch and a source of lamb and wool during the mining era, and remained to be a major town contributor for many decades. It was only in the 1990’s when the ranch was developed into a touring company, boasting not only a rich heritage but also stunning Rocky Mountain views.

Each ride is sure to become unforgettable, as the sleighs get pulled by gorgeous draft horses. Their sleigh tours run twice a day. The earlier 4:30 PM ride is geared for families with children, while the later 6:30 PM ride typically caters to adults. Each tour typically lasts for 3 hours.
The tour begins from the San Miguel County courthouse in Telluride through a transport vehicle. The guests are then transferred to the sleighs waiting in the family ranch, before heading to the dinner site. Upon arriving at the camp, guests are treated to a sumptuous Basque sheepherder meals, with dishes from Spain. At the end of the evening, the guests get aboard the sleigh and drives back to the waiting transport vehicle which will bring them back to Telluride.
