Getting from Telluride to Ouray&other places for the Day???

We'd like to visit the Hot Springs.

Is there any sort of shuttle going out of Telluride to Ouray - or other neat places just for the day?

Any tours for such?

Or should we rent a car for 1 day from Telluride????

If you are travelling in the winter, then you would have to rent a car to get to Ouray...it's very pretty there in the winter and happens to be a huge ice climbing mecca. Driving on the highway to Ouray from Telluride is quite scenic and takes less than one hour.

If you are arriving in the summer then there are tour companies that pick you up in Telluride and take you over the mountain passes in 4 wheel vehicles to Ouray...a gorgeous day trip.

In the winter if you want to go anywhere outside of Telluride you have to rent a car. Driving is usually ok if you don't mind mildly winding roads and the weather isn't bad.
