I'll actually be heading to Alamosa from Denver tomorrow, which goes right over it. I'll try and snag a video or some pics of it!

I used to live in Telluride and flew there many times after moving to Denver. From the screenshots it looks like ORBX did an excellent job on the surrounding scenery. I will not be able to hold out for a sale to purchase this scenery!  :lol:

 

A little Trivia on the airport. It is located on a plateau that is at the convergence of 3 valleys, the upstream drainages from Telluride and Ophir, and the combined downstream drainage of the San Miguel river. When the wind is blowing down the canyons and gusting it switches direction rapidly. The runway has numerous windsocks along it as the wind can be blowing hard at each end, but in opposite directions. Commercial flights are often diverted to Montrose, 90 miles away, due to this.  The runway looks like it is longer than it needs to be, but when the wind is blowing you need a good airspeed margin.

In X-Plane it is quite sloped even with a mesh , how is the real airport runway?

Before 2009 KTEx had a significant sloped runway, but they straightened it and now it is much less prominent. FTX modelled it therefore without a slope. So your X-plane  version might represent a pre-2009 state. You can see a nice comparison picture here in reply 34.

Taking the scenic route I'm guessing since Telluride isn't remotely close to going right over it on the way to Denver.
