Telluride Ski Resort in Colorado and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. Telluride Ski Resort is located up the mountain from the town of Telluride. The Town is located in a box canyon on the San Miguel River and is a former mining area, which was known mostly for its silver and gold production.

This world-class ski resort features a beautiful mountain setting with access to over 2000 acres of terrain. Reader’s polls (Conde Nast, Ski, Powder) regularly rated it the “Most Scenic” ski area due to its unrivalled scenery.

Telluride Ski Resort, popular with skiers since the 70’s, opened its first chair in 1972. Telluride Ski Resort features long runs and varied terrain that will challenge even advanced/expert skiers or snowboarders, whether you are in Revelation Bowl, Black Iron Bowl or Prospect Bowl.

Telluride’s slopes and lifts remain uncrowded throughout the season and the mountain averages more than 300 inches (762 cm) of snow and 300 days of sunshine each year. Escape2ski was particularly impressed with the great view on our decent down Revelation Bowl, and when it snows this bowl fills with exceptional “powder”.

Telluride has it’s own airport which is situated at the highest altitude of any commercial airport in the United States. Due to the uncertainty of the weather and its location on a Mesa, flight delays or an airport closure is always a possibility. The Montrose airport is located 66 miles (106 km) from Telluride and might be a better choice if you are on a tight schedule.

When visiting Telluride Ski Resort, deciding where to stay might be the hardest part of planning your trip. You can choose the Town of Telluride with it historic charm or the modern luxury of Mountain Village perched high above at 9,500 feet. Each area has a good selection of accommodation, as well as world-class dining and shopping. If you’re a history buff, make sure you take a moment to visit the Telluride Historical Museum, located in the restored 1896 miners’ hospital, which showcases the town’s diverse history.

The Galloping Goose Bus service is “free” throughout the town, and a “free” gondola connects the town to the mountain village. Riding down the gondola on a clear night with the lights from the town in the distance makes for a wonderful experience.
