Historic Telluride, Colorado will be the destination for our second ski trip in 2024. Telluride is a small mountain community just eight blocks wide and 12 blocks long nestled at the base of a box canyon and surrounded by 14,000 feet majestic San Juan Mountains. Much of the community is on the National Historical Landmarks Register with the town’s history being tied to mining that began in 1875. There are plenty of boutiques, gourmet restaurants, art galleries and saloons to spend time at as well as a very good, interesting museum.

The town provides free bus service that makes a loop around the community and has a stop at the free gondola that can get you from the town to the Mountain Village. The gondola is a 13-minute ride and has a stop at Mid-Point Station St Sophia where the very fine Allred’s Restaurant is located. The next stop is the Mountain Village where we will be staying. The village has an array of restaurants, shops and an ice skating rink.

We will be staying at the Bear Creek Lodge located at 135 San Joaquin Road.
Twenty-four members will stay in three bedroom, three bath units that provide direct access to the slopes. The complex has a pool, hot tubs, sauna and steam room as well as a fitness room. There is shuttle service available from the condos to the village.

Telluride’s top elevation is 13,150 feet with the base at 8725. There are 2000 acres of skiable area. Of the 127 runs, 23% are beginner, 36% are intermediate and 41% are advance/expert. The mountain is serviced by 2 gondolas and 12 chairlifts that include 7 hi-speed quads.

Travelers will have an option to fly to Montrose, CO with a shuttle service getting folks from the airport to the resort or driving the 17-hour trip. Lift tickets (Epic pass) will need to be purchased in advance by each skier based on whether they are doing both of the trips or only this trip.

See the article on getting the Epic pass and use the link provided to purchase your pass and receive a discount on the trip.

Trip leaders will be Kathy Takes and Wendall Sents. This trip will go on sale at the Spring Picnic on June 3rd.
