Skiing & Snowboarding

If you're as in love with skiing as we are, you're probably counting down the days until you are back on the mountain! In fact, we here at Telluride.com, are dreaming about those bluebird-sky powder days.

Ranked one of North America's top ten ski areas by SKI and Skiing magazines, skiing in Telluride is something that you truly must experience. The slopes and lift lines remain uncrowded throughout the season - whether you wake up at 7 am to catch first tracks or mosey out to the mountain around lunch time, you will not wait to take a run. You might feel like you’re on your own private ski slope! Telluride Ski Resort is unlike any other resort in Colorado and has even been lauded as, “Unmatched in North America”.  

The terrain at Telluride Ski Resort offers something for everyone. The San Juan Mountains are notoriously steep and jagged, but the Ski Resort maintains groomed runs and wide trails at even the highest peaks so that beginners and intermediate skiers can also enjoy the breathtaking views. There is no question, however, that Telluride boasts some of the steepest terrain in Colorado. For expert skiers looking for a thrill, the Plunge and Spiral Stairs trails offer exciting vertical drops. Chutes, glades, moguls, cliffs - we’ve got it all. Telluride Ski Resort also has immense hike-to-terrain acreage. And for all of you park rats and mini-park-rats, Telluride has exciting and challenging park features for all levels. The Telluride Ski School offers kid and adult, private and group lessons for every level of skier and snowboarder. From beginners to those looking to regain their ski legs and experts in need of a mountain guide, Telluride Ski School's professional instructors are some of the best in the business.
