It was my pleasure to call Telluride Mountain resort my home for 8 winter seasons. If you enjoy good quality powder skiing in tight or open trees, huge well formed & long bump runs, steep well maintained groomers or a decent sized well maintained (and not too crowded) freestyle park and pipe, then this place is worth a look. Oh yes, there are tons of secret spots hiding away and even some very dangerous backcountry gates for the explorers amongst you (go prepared & with a guide)

That covers the experienced skier / rider, but Telluride also has some of the longest and most consistent cruising greens and blues that'll suit the novice and intermediates too.
The lift system isn't huge, and a couple of the lifts are a little dated but this is usually balanced out as there are very rarely any lift lines longer than 4-5 mins.

One potential downside would be for the people who don't like to ride the same trail twice, there is a great range of terrain types, but a quick strong skier could potential have been on every run in 2 - 3 days, and a lot of the runs take you back to the same lift points. (But I never found it a problem)

Telluride itself is a small old mining town that maintains much of its character, quite rare in the US, with a good range of quality restaurants, (though they know how to charge) and very laid back friendly locals. Mountain village (interlinked) is a newer purpose built village with lots of ski in ski out accommodation.

It's a bit of pricey (but then its skiing) and a bit of a pain getting there (don't go for a couple of days) but once your there, the views are gorgeous, the mountain is excellent and the people are genuine.
