Telluride, Colorado, stashed among the highest concentration of 13 and 14,000 foot peaks in North America, has spectacular scenery which is undeniably some of the most beautiful in the Rockies. Add to that the new terrain expansions for skiing, and Telluride Ski Resort offers some of the most stunning skiing and riding on the continent.
Last season, Telluride opened Revelation Bowl. This season, the terrain expansion continues, as Telluride announces the opening of Gold Hill Chutes 2-5. This brings the resort expansion to over 400 additional skiable acres, which gives the resort a vertical drop of 4,425 feet, with 3,845 vertical feet lift-served. That is one of the highest in North America.
Skiing at Telluride offers a genuinely enjoyable experience for all levels of skiers. Offering a mix of quality terrain at all points on the mountain, even beginners and intermediate skiers can ride to the highest peak and enjoy the view and terrain generally reserved only for the experts.
Telluride will also be the new home for World Cup competition in snowboarding as the 2009-2010 Visa U.S. Snowboardcross Cup hits the Rocky Mountains Dec. 17-20. Telluride will be the sole U.S. stop of the LG FIS Snowboard World Cup and will feature an SBX (snowboardcross), PGS (parallel giant slalom) and the newly added Team Snowboardcross competition during what will be the second in a series of five Olympic qualification events.
