I’ve skied throughout most of the western resorts and this was my first time traveling to Telluride with my 14 year old son. We traveled after the holiday week.

2023 has been a great season for snow and conditions were fantastic. Incredible variety of terrain, manageable size and no crowds. Compare to Breck, Park City, Aspen and Vail - cost of dinning, crowds and getting around is all better in my opinion. Stay in town or upper mountain village - no need to get on a bus, I guess we could have made reservations for dinner but didn’t and worked out perfectly. Lunch - so easy to ski into town or upper village with little crowds, variety of food. Lunch for the 2 of us was never more than $30.

We planned ahead with Epic pass (provides 7 days to Telluride) and called the mountain directly and got a reasonable price on great resort (the Peaks) located in upper village.

Yes, it’s not easy or inexpensive to get to (park city wins) but the amount of skiing without crowds, quality of terrain, lots of very helpful staff, overall vibe and cost make this a top spot for me. Looking forward to coming back.

Though some warmer days caused a bit of melting during the day and freezing at night the ice was minimal and the grooming excellent. We Ski Greens and Blues and had no problem finding great runs that went for miles. The lines were short and well organized for COVID conditions. we felt very safe everywhere.

My wife and I went at the end of January; she was participating in a women's 3-day group class. Access not challenging. We flew into Montrose, then drove 1 1/4 hours to the Mountain Village. Easy, extraordinarily scenic drive. The village is up the slopes a bit, about 800 feet of elevation from the town of Telluride. Very attractive village with ample resources such as shopping and dining. A free short gondola connects the Village with shopping ( grocery market, liquor store). Another gondola, public transportation, connects the village with the town of Telluride.
Service here is excellent; staff go out od their way to help. They actively seek out opportunities to improve customer satisfaction. Lines are short and move quickly. The snow is fantastic! My wife's experience with the Ski School was amongst the best of her 40+ years of skiing.
We are already planning our return trip!

After reading a myriad of North America resort articles, I decided to fly out here on my own during some down time at work. My experience was an overall "meh."

Skiing Experience
The Bad
The intermediate blue runs felt pretty short. The only way to get them to feel longer was to link runs from different lifts (ex: take Lift 14 to See Forever, ski down Woozley Way to Stormin Normin, then to Ophir Loop), but that meant you couldn't repeat the same lap without going up multiple lift across the mountain.

The Good
There were a moderate amount of single black runs that provided a fun challenge. Revelation Bowl had the best snow while I was there and I liked that there was a whole area for only blacks on Lift 9. There were very little lines anywhere except for Lift 4 at Mountain Village.

The OK
I did a vast majority of the intermediate to black runs within two days, which just saved the third day to do the fun ones or any ancillary not already completed. There were a moderate amount of repeats. You probably shouldn't consider this place unless you like advanced/difficult terrain. The other trails aren't interesting.

Mountain & Dining:
The Bad
I was shocked how expensive the food was ($34 for a ramen bowl, $25 for a burger) and the resort didn't seem to honor the epic pass discounts like at other resorts. With that being said, it was also the best food at any resort I have been to by a huge margin. I was disappointed with the lack of cheaper options.

The Good
The Gondola between Mountain Village and Telluride was great. If you stayed in town, you did not need a car during your stay to get anywhere.

The OK
Due to the clientele being mostly families, this is not a party town. Most of the bars were quiet after 8. I was a little disappointed in the lack of younger people there.

Conclusion
I'm not entirely sure what I was expecting, but this trip didn't leave me amazed. The runs were fine, but nothing felt extraordinary and the food and lodging were all very expensive. I'm glad I went, but don't think I'd ever go back. If I had to imagine the ideal client for this resort, it would be a wealthy, athletic 40 year old who enjoys difficult terrain. The intermediate runs here aren't anything interesting and there are far cheaper areas in Colorado for a novice to learn to ski or snowboard.

Been coming for years. Biggest complaint is limiting access to trails before Xmas regardless of snow. Management waits to open more terrain after Xmas but still charges full price for early season. We have access to a home so it is affordable. If paying for lodging do not come until late winter early spring, when snow is better. Also pack a lunch, food options on mountain are way overpriced.

My wife and I stayed at the Peaks Resort at Telluride, CO, which was nice, but expensive. Skiing and grooming was ok, but limited snow affected conditions. Worst experience was finding that while Telluride apparently accepts the EPIC Pass for 7 days, we found out that they DID NOT accept the EPIC Military Pass in any fashion when we tried to use it. Had to go to the Ski Ticket Sales window to see what was going on. Was told about not accepting the EPIC Military Pass, but they had a Military Discount to pay $110 per lift ticket on 1st day, but that charge would drop by 30% off the initial $110 rate on additional days, and that we would be automatically charged to the credit card when used. However, when we got the charges, it was for $136.50 per lift ticket versus $77 per ticket. Called the Telluride office to get credits on the charges, but they said we had just misunderstood and that the 30% was off the base rate of $195, which was $136.50 per day or $26.50 higher than the Day 1 charge of $110.00, and they would not issue any credits. I obviously should have dug deeper to understand the fine print that Telluride did NOT accept the Military Epic passes. However, I expect that I can rely on information given by what I consider to be an authorized agent at their ticket sales office, particularly when the charges will be automatically applied. I believe that they should have issued credits for the overcharges, and consider their unwillingnes to be to be a very flawed business practice by Telluride. have filed a protest of the overcharges with my credit card company. After these experiences, I also feel that Telluride is not very supportive of our Military veterans.

We love this mountain, skiing here every year. But this year we can’t help but notice some deficiencies. The lift replacement project is running late, grooming is erratic and poorly communicated, the resort app has issues, and there are reduced on -mountain eating options.
Lots of energy seems to be being spent on the terrain park, which is lucky to have more than a handful of people on it at any one time. Meanwhile popular runs are left ungroomed. The once brilliant full day lesson programme that kept us coming back to Telluride also has succumbed to the conventional half day instruction.
Things that remains amazingly though are the resort staff, especially the ski instructors, and of course the exceptional setting and terrain. This is a special place that deserves a little more attention to detail.

Very cool ski resort where you can ski with your Jaguar (if you got one) as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May proved on Amazon's The Grand Tour (Season 2, Episode 6). Beside that you can have some fancy meal, spa services or let them shuttle you to some exciting adventure. It's just up to you. It depends what kind of activity you prefer to enjoy. They can satisfy most of your needs.

We had arranged lessons for our girls before hand and I didn't realize when I booked that it didn't include equipment. I was able to get it resolved but it ws two days of me leaving messages and emails for anyone to return my calls. They fixed the issue, or my lack of planning to be more accurate without hesitation. There was some confusion about where to take our kids themorning of the lesson so I am glad we did a trial run the day beofre. The instructors are fantastic and not easily rattled. Equipment was aall fantasitc and in great working order and seemed very clean. My girls had such a great day that my husband decided to go the next day. My only suggestion is to research where you have to go and show up before hand.

Find another resort for skiing if you are a novice. The locals will NOT help you and seemingly do not even welcome travelers which is very strange as the revenue we brought to that town just with our little group was huge!

Additionally, when my daughter and granddaughter got stuck on the slope, not one person would help me/them. In fact, I was told to tell a passer-by to instruct them to take their skis off and WALK down the slope.

To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Nope. Never returning to this place, despite the beautiful scenery. Glad I took plenty pics to remember the only positive of the entire trip other than being with my family...PHOTOS OF THE MOUNTAINS!!!
