Mountain Tails
224 E. Colorado Avenue
Telluride , Colorado
Tel: 970 369 4240

Telluride is the type of place where dogs are de facto decision makers who govern the daily schedule of their "masters." Hence, Mountain Tails's $415 dog bed. An extensive canine snack collection includes Fido Fish Jerky and its optimal chaser, Good Dog Breath Mints.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 5:30 pm, Sundays noon to 5 pm.

Paragon Ski and Sports
213 W. Colorado Avenue
Telluride , Colorado
Tel: 970 728 4525

Altruists like Telluride's longest-running sports store for its ongoing sponsorship of local bike racers and grassroots ski competitions. Others come just for employee Herb Manning (who works at the store's Oak Street Branch), a frequently photographed ski model who's renowned as the town's best technician for mounting bindings. Paragon also carries gear ranging from cold-weather North Face apparel and K2 skis to Smith goggles.

Open daily 8 am to 8 pm.

Telluride Trappings & Toggery

The Toggery is a clunky name for the most venerable clothing store in town. Thirty-something years after its founding, it remains the place to buy Ugg boots, Levi's, or the swimsuit for the hot-tub fest tonight.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 9 am to 9 pm, Sundays 9 am to 8 pm.

Two Skirts
127 West Colorado Avenue
Telluride , Colorado
Tel: 970 728 6828

This artsy shop off Telluride's main drag occupies a sunny gallery-style space hung with local art and teeming with character. The inventory is made for looking polished by the lodge fire, including sweaters from Christopher Fischer Cashmere to be paired with jeans from Paige Premium Denim.—Samantha Berman
