Telluride Ski Resort

The #1 Ski Resort in North America

The Telluride Ski Resort has been named the top ski resort in North America for six of the past seven years - and it deserves every single top award. The resort first opened in 1971 and has since expanded to now serve over 22,000 skiers per hour on 17 total lifts.


The ski slopes can be accessed directly from Mountain Village, as well as several lifts in the town of Telluride. A River Club chauffeur would be happy to drive you and your gear to whichever lift you prefer in town.

A Variety of Terrain

No matter what your skill level, there's a place for you to ski at the Telluride Ski Resort. The Telluride Ski Resort has over 2,000 acres of skiable terrain with 148 total trails. Other backcountry and sidecountry trails are also accessible from the ski resort (for someone looking for an added challenge).


While the ski resort is home to some of the most advanced in-bounds terrain, it also is made up of 23% beginner and 36% intermediate trails. For the more advanced skier, the Black Iron Bowl, Hold Hill Chutes, Palmyra Peak and Bald Mountain offer hike-to terrain that leads to untouched powder. The Telluride Ski Resort also has a beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain park, as well as an area for beginners.
