    Safety. Focus

    We are committed to the safety of our guests and employees.

    Telluride Ski Resort focuses on safety as part of our core mission and in our everyday operating culture.

    We ask that guests as well as employees focus on safety while at the resort. All skiers and snowboarders are subject to the Responsibility Code, and for avoiding collisions with skiers and riders in front or below.

    The terrain at Telluride Ski Resort presents everything from groomed slopes to tight trees and extreme slopes. During periods of low visibility or other inclement weather and snow conditions, the degree of difficulty of these runs for each individual may change. It is important to use extra caution to prevent making a mistake that could result in a serious injury or death.

    For your safety and the safety of all our guests and staff, we strictly monitor boundary rope lines on mountain. Ducking a rope will result in losing your pass at minimum, and in the worst case scenario losing your life. 

    By entering the Telluride Ski Resort boundaries, you are assuming and accepting all risks of injury, damage or loss. If you are not willing to assume and accept these risks, please do not purchase a lift ticket at this resort.

    Your Responsibility Code

    Skiing can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using alpine, snowboard, telemark, cross country and other specialized ski equipment, such as that used by disabled or other skiers.

    Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce.

    Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience.

    • Stay in control.
    • People ahead have the right of way.
    • Stop in a safe place for you and others.
    • When starting downhill or merging, look uphill and yield.
    • Use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
    • Observe signs and warnings, and keep off of closed trails.
    • Know how to use the lifts safely.

    For Ski Patrol assistance, dial 970.728.7585 on your cell phone or contact the nearest lift operator.

    Chill on the Chair

    Chill on the Chair - No Horseplay on the Lifts

    • Boarding the Lift - Boarding the chairlift can be dangerous, use extreme caution at all times. Before boarding, move ski poles to one hand, then utilize the free hand to grab the chair and sit.
    • Riding the Lift - No Horseplay - When riding the lift keep your ski tips up and hold tightly to your poles and gear. Keep the safety bar down during the ride, and never lean forward, swing your legs excessively or cause the chairlift to swing. Stay alert to your surroundings during the ride.
    • The Safety Bar - When riding the lift, always keep the safety bar down until told to raise it. Lower the bar slowly, and only raise it when you are approaching the station.
    • Disembarking the Lift. - When approaching the station, raise your skis slightly so you can glide off the lift. After standing up, ski to one side, out of the way of other lift passengers.
    • Dropping Personal Items. - If you feel something about to drop, resist the urge to lean over and grab the item while the lift is in motion. Wait until you reach the station and the operator will help you safely retreive your items.
