Telluride, being less commercialized than most resorts, is unpretentious, friendly, and full of surprises. Combining elegant European style with rustic charm, it retains the vestiges of its mining town roots while exuding a modest sophistication.

The Skiing:
Telluride is a ski resort that traverses two box canyons with incredible views of the San Juan Mountain and has grown over the years to 2,000 skiable acres. It receives an average of 309 annual inches of light, dry snow, which blankets 84 trails, bowls, and some of the steepest terrain in North America. The "Galloping Goose" is the longest run on the mountain -  4.6 miles and is accessible for nearly all levels of ability.

The base has an elevation of 8,725' rising to the summit at 13,150'. Click here for the 2019-20 Winter Trail Maps.



The Town of Telluride & the Mountain Village:


The town of Telluride located about 330 miles southwest of Denver was founded in 1870 when miners came to dig for copper, zinc and lead. Its history is evident from a stroll down Main Street. Mining was big. At the height of the gold rush, nearly 5,000 people inhabited Telluride, but now there are only about 2,500. The wealth attracted outlaws, such as Butch Cassidy, whose first bank robbery was the San Miguel Valley Bank.  Skiing at Telluride began in the early 70’s and with it came the
