“Beautiful views atop the Rockies”

Telluride Ski & Golf Club

Attraction details
Owner description: Keeping your eye on the ball and off the towering peaks surrounding the Telluride Golf Club may be your toughest challenge when teeing off at this breathtaking course, perched 9,500 feet above sea level.This par 70, 6,574 yard, 18 hole mountain resort course is surrounded by the highest concentration of 14,000 foot mountains in the United States.While the breathtaking beauty may be a distraction, the altitude works to your advantage as Telluride's air creates less resistance against the golf ball during flight, translating to longer drives and breathtaking beauty.

Our group had a great time at Telluride. Early January is a great time to go as we arrived after the New Year's crowd had left and before the MLK weekend people arrived. There were noticeably more people skiing on the weekend but on weekdays we practically had the place to ourselves.

NOTE: Telluride has one of the highest base elevations in North America (and perhaps anywhere) so it's very important to constantly hydrate. You'll notice the altitude change as soon as you start walking up even a small flight of stairs. Be aware of the potential for altitude sickness but hydrating frequently will help.

There's a good mix of slope types at Telluride. One thing our group found helpful was that instead of the basic green/blue/black/double black slope signs, the resort actually breaks it down further into green/double green/blue/double blue/black/double black. This lets beginners know what they're in for and allows the intermediates to distinguish bump runs from regular runs.

The snow was a bit thin while we were there but it was pretty early in the season and there was plenty of terrain open. I would have like to have tried some of the bowls but they were pretty much all closed. We had unseasonably cold weather during our stay and as the uppermost lifts are above treeline it got very cold when the wind whipped along the top of the ridge.

I'd love to go back when there is more snow and I can ski more of the terrain.

Love the skiing. No Colorado resort can match the views of the San Juans. Mountain Village is one of the nicest in the state.

If you travel to Telluride a lot, you should consider joining Telluride Ski & Golf club. The service is AAA. The golf course is amazingly beautiful. There are so many activities to help you get connected with others who frequent Telluride as well. There's things for adults, kids & to do together as a family. The skiing is impeccable and there are never and lift lines. Well worth the $. You must take a tour!!!
