It’s snowing in Telluride, with a foot of fresh snow from a recent storm and more on the way, bringing the season total to nearly 15 feet. There’s no better time to call in sick with the powder fever, and book your trip to North America’s #1 Ski Resort*.

Telluride offers an ease unlike any other destination, with uncrowded slopes, no lift lines, and a ski-in/ski-out experience from just about every point in town. Spend more time hooting and hollering down the mountain and less time waiting to ride the lift. The world-renowned skiing and snowboarding offers dedicated areas for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders, with all levels able to view Telluride’s awe-inspiring scenery from the mountain. Powderhounds will rejoice with in-bounds hike-to-terrain and a lift-served backcountry experience, while cruisers will appreciate the mountain’s vast variety of groomed runs.
