Get ready for an exhilarating day at America’s best Alpine ski resort

“Telluride really is a skier’s mountain,” says renowned ski-maker Pete Wagner. “Great terrain, and there’s never anyone on it.”

The Experience

Ski out our back door to a true skier’s haven, known for some of the steepest and most diverse terrain in North America—and sublime weather conditions that include an average annual snowfall of 300 inches and 300 days of sunshine. But what truly sets Telluride Ski Resort apart is that it never seems crowded, with virtually non-existent lift lines. Credit its incredible spread over 2,000 skiable acres, a vertical drop of more than 4,425 feet (that’s 1,400 feet more than Vail), and 148 trails divided roughly evenly among ability levels. There really is something for everyone, with plenty of green beginner runs to Advanced intermediates, along with a wealth of extreme terrain to challenge even the most expert skiers. An added bonus: there’s at least one intermediate run for nearly every single lift, so you won’t have to worry about being in over your head.

Skiing Safely in Telluride

We know you can’t wait to get back on the mountain. However, it’s important to be aware of a few changes this winter ski season, implemented by Telluride Ski Resort in its commitment to keeping its guests, employees, and the local community safe as the slopes re-open. The new COVID-19 protocols, policies and procedures below all follow current San Miguel County and Colorado State guidelines, but may be subject to change as county and state requirements evolve.
  • Lift tickets must be purchased 7 days or more before the first day of skiing.
  • This season, we will need a first and last name for each guest. Each guest will need a ticket specifically assigned to them for higher level of safety and service.
  • Contactless lift ticket and season pass purchases through advance purchase only. Same day ticket purchases will not be available.
  • In early October, new season passes, lift tickets and ski school products will be available for purchase.
