TRIP LEADERS  MELISSA WIGHT AND ELIZABETH FISHER INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN BEAUTIFUL TELLURIDE!

Skiers – Bear Creek Lodge’s Funicular gives you private access to the slopes. The ride takes 4 minutes, after which you will exit onto Lower Village Bypass on the Telluride Ski Resort. A short ride down this run will take you to the base of chair 1 and chair 10 providing easy routes to the rest of the mountain.

The Telluride Ski Experience offers a genuine mountain experience for all levels of skiers thanks to a mix of quality terrain at all points on the mountain.  From refined groomed runs to challenging moguls, there truly is something for everyone.  Even beginners and intermediate skiers can ride to the highest peaks and enjoy terrain and views typically reserved for the experts.

Skiers and Non-Skiers alike – Telluride offers dog sledding, heli-skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, back country skiing, sleigh rides, ice skating, snow biking, and ice climbing.  Telluride, with it’s Victorian architecture, and Mountain Village with it’s European alpine elegance, together offer a terrific variety of shops, restaurants, and bars.  And folks – getting back and forth between the town of Telluride and Mountain Village is easy, with Telluride’s free Gondola.
