Montrose is a better option if you can't--or don't want to--fly in to Telluride. Where are you looking for flights? There's a direct flight from Chicago if that might work for you.

It is about an hour and 45 min, depending on weather. There is not a shuttle that I am aware of. The airport abbreviation for Telluride is TEX (if you want to attempt to fly directly there) and the abbreviation for Montrose is MTJ. Montrose is where most people fly and then drive or take the shuttle the 1.5 hour to Telluride. If you are staying in a condo, many people prefer to grocery shop in Montrose before going to Telluride. Cheaper.

yep. Another option would be Grand Junction GJT which is 65 miles farther north from Montrose. But no mountain passes -- easy driving.

Sometimes people find a pretty good rate to Durango, too. Grand Junction would be the largest airport of those mentioned.
