Located in a remote, gorgeous location, Telluride Ski Resort's improbable existence is a testament to its desirability, attracting non-stop flights from nine U.S. cities and the enviable status as host of the Visa LG Snowboardcross World Cup three consecutive times. Two thousand acres of skiable land include 120 runs accessible by 12 chairlifts, two Magic Carpets, two gondolas, and two surface lifts. Three new skiing areas have opened since the year 2000 (Prospect Bowl, Black Iron Bowl, Revelation Bowl), greatly increasing Telluride's overall skiable land.
Telluride Ski & Snowboard School offers world-class instruction to skiers and snowboarders of all ages and experience levels. Eco Adventures takes guests on extensive trips through the beautiful wilds in and around the resort, accompanied by naturalists to answer questions and enlighten minds. Snowshoeing and snowbiking are two unique ways to experience the powder-coated resort grounds.
Lift Ticket, Season Pass, and Multi-Day Pass rates and purchasing can be found here.
