If Ullr (the ancient God of Snow) doesn’t send lots of dry, fluffy powder to Telluride or you just need a change of pace, the ski resort offers lots of other activities anyone can enjoy.
Skiing & Snowboarding
Telluride’s reputation was staked on its challenging terrain and lack of crowds, and things have only gotten better in the past five years. Expanded terrain, a new lift and increased glading have increased the skiable acres at Telluride to more than 2,000 acres, and it is still shocking to have to wait in line longer than five minutes.
The resort now has three terrain parks with varying degrees of difficulty. There is a beginner terrain park off of Lift 11 with small jumps and basic features. The terrain park at the top of Lift 5 ups the ante, with bigger jumps and beginner rail features. The Hoot Brown Terrain Park near Lift 4 and the gondola station has jumps as large as 60 feet and a wide assortment of rails and other features.
Compete against family or friends on a downhill slalom course located on the Butterfly ski run off Lift 4. The course is open daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Nordic Skiing & Snowshoeing
The ski resort operates and maintains a series of groomed trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at the top of Lift 10 in Mountain Village. Special discount tickets are available if visitors are only using the Nordic trails.
Sleigh Ride Dinners
A snow cat-pulled sleigh meets guests at the base of Lift 4 and whisks them away to the historic mid-mountain Gorrono Ranch for a Western-style buffet dinner.
