Telluride is a very small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 2,399 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Telluride is the 118th largest community in Colorado.
Telluride home prices are not only among the most expensive in Colorado, but Telluride real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Telluride is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Telluride is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Telluride who work in sales jobs (18.41%), management occupations (14.85%) and food service (13.66%).
Of important note, Telluride is also a town of artists. Telluride has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Telluride’s character.
Also of interest is that Telluride has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 15.46% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Another notable thing is that Telluride is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Telluride’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
In addition, Telluride is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.
Even though Telluride is a smaller town, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly the subway for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
If knowledge is power, Telluride is a pretty powerful place. 60.83% of the adults in Telluride have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.
