Rider's Guide

Telluride is a very large resort with 16 lifts, including one gondola and seven high-speed quads, that take you to 84 trails. Here you will enjoy 310 inches of magnificent snow on their longest run, which is a jaw-dropping 24,288 feet. Their trails are rated 24 percent for beginners, 38 percent for intermediates, and 38 percent for experts.

Parks and Pipes

The Plunge is aptly named as it gets you more vertical than any other lift and is one of the longest in the country. East and west natural halfpipes on The Plunge are respectively 2,000 feet and 4,000 feet long. If that isn't enough, Bushwhacker has a 1,300 foot natural quarterpipe. Gold Hill and Prospect Bowl are primarily for big-board freeriding. Stella, Magnolia, Prospect Bowl, and Sandia are all good board rides. Air Garden Terrain Park has three separate lines with more than 11 acres and 480 vertical feet of A-frames, tombstones, beams, banks, rails, and funboxes, including a superpipe with 18-foot walls.
