Best time to find a long-term rental

Hi! We're relocating to Telluride semi-permanently. (ie, for a minimum of 18 months, maybe longer.)

We're going to need a place to live. Is there a "best" time to look for long-term rentals? I'm imagining that there may be a bunch of vacancies opening up right around the end of ski season, is that something that actually happens? If so, about when do people start looking for new tenants?

Not sure there is a best time. Many of the people who work during ski season stay in the area year round. The local paper is the Daily Planet, there is an online copy. I would go ahead and start looking the rental ads there. Rents in Telluride are pretty high, so be prepared.

Telluride rentals are very seasonal due to the transient nature of the tenant pool. The vast majority of leases are 6 months for obvious reasons.

Look for openings during the off seasons (4/15-5/30 and 10/1-11/15).

In reality Telluride is very transient and the people who work here for a season tend to leave during the shoulder seasons so the best time is April/May or October/November.
