Telluride Mountain Resort encompasses 1,700 acres (688 hectares) of skiable terrain in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. With 17 lifts, including a two-staged transportation gondola, Telluride is one of Colorado’s premiere destination alpine resorts.

Telluride invested $14 million in capital expenditures to create one of the most memorable and unique experiences, complete with three new high-speed detachable quad lifts.
