Imagine powder-covered mountains, deep blue skies, and stunning views. That’s what you can expect when making your next adventure a trip to the infamous Town of Telluride! Telluride Ski Resort is known internationally as one of the premier ski and snowboarding destinations and continually ranks highly among skiers and snowboarders. Here are the reasons why you should take a ski trip to Telluride this winter:
San Juan Mountains
The scenic views set Telluride apart from the rest. Telluride is in the heart of the San Juan mountains. The high concentration of 13,000 and 14,000-foot peaks make it a beautiful sightseeing trip and an ideal place to ski. The mountain range itself is relatively young and boasts dramatic peaks that provide a stunning real-life postcard at every degree you turn.
Telluride offers terrain suitable for all levels of ability from beginner to expert. There are about 148 trails ranging from bunny slopes for beginners to the extreme for adrenaline junkies. If you need lessons to learn how to ski or brush up on your skills, there are plenty of classes offered by the Telluride Ski & Snowboard School.
Not only is the town’s ski resort one of the most renowned in the world, but you can also go backcountry skiing with Telluride Helitrax for an unforgettable experience. Telluride is one of the few U.S. ski resorts that offer daily Heli-Skiing. Enjoy an exclusive 250 square miles of powder snow with small groups (4 guests per guide) for the personalized attention that will have everyone feeling like royalty on their Helitrax ride.
Don’t expect huge crowds of people or weekend rushes, either. The remoteness of Telluride keeps large crowds at bay. The Town is about a 6-hour drive from Denver, so most people don’t visit just to ski for a weekend. Most visitors stay for a week-long affair. This means you likely won’t have to wait in long lines for skiing!
Grabbing drinks and food after a long day of skiing is a tradition. After all, skiing can be quite the workout so you’ll want to replenish your body and warm up with drinks and yummy food. Check out our blog on some of the best places to eat in Telluride and consider adding some of them to your “après-ski” to-do!
