The Telluride ski experience offers a genuine mountain experience for all levels of skiers thanks to a mix of quality terrain at all points on the mountain. From refined groomed runs to challenging moguls, there truly is something for everyone. Even beginners and intermediate skiers can ride to the highest peaks and enjoy terrain and views typically reserved for the experts. Find out why Telluride has been called, "The most beautiful place you'll ever ski."
Averaging more than 300 inches of snow and 300 days of sunshine each year, odds are youâ€™ll find fantastic conditions on Tellurideâ€™s 1700 skiable acres. And forget crowds: the trails are never packed, and there is rarely a lift line.
Long time favorites include The Plunge for experts, intermediate See Forever, and the 4.6 mile Galloping Goose for beginners. Freestylers of all levels can hit one of several terrain parks.
