Information About Telluride Ski Resort

The Telluride Ski Resort is nestled in a beautiful box canyon of the San Juan mountains in southwest Colorado just above the towns of Telluride and Mountain Village. The resort offers a world-class alpine experience at all levels - from beginners to expert skiers and snowboarders. The uncrowded slopes offer an immense variety of terrain that includes beautiful groomed runs, challenging moguls, and breathtaking bowls. Take a ride on the See Forever run, and you'll understand why Telluride has been called, "The most beautiful place you'll ever ski." Our Mountainside Inn and Manitou Lodge are both in downtown Telluride close to the free gondola that will connect you to the base of the ski resort.
