Policies

Telluride Ski & Golf On-Mountain Dog Policy

Dogs are approved for use on trails designated for hiking.  Persons with dogs shall obey all permanent or temporary closures of terrain, trails, roads, and other portions within Telluride Ski and Golf Resort’s operational boundaries. At all times, dogs must be under the control of their handler and shall have a harness, leash, or other tether.  Persons with dogs must follow all applicable rules and regulations regarding dogs set forth by the Town of Telluride, the Town of Mountain Village, this resort, and/or the United States Forest Service.  Any persons with dogs in violation of this policy will be asked to remove the dog from the resort immediately and may be subject to other penalties.    


Telluride Ski & Golf Drone and Unmanned Aircraft Policy

Out of safety concerns for guests, employees, and resort property, as well as concerns for individual privacy, Telluride Ski Resort prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems, or drones, by the general public—including recreational users and hobbyists—without the prior written authorization from the Resort.  This prohibition includes drones used for filming or videotaping, as well as any drone use by media or journalists operating above or within Telluride Ski Resort boundaries.  Please contact a resort representative if you have any questions or if you need to seek prior authorization to operate any aerial drones.  Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations, local law enforcement, and U.S. Forest Service Rules, as well as those policies separately established by this Resort, which may include certification, training, insurance coverage, indemnification requirements, and waivers or releases of liability.  Any violation of this policy may involve suspension of your skiing or snowboarding privileges, or the revocation of your season pass, as well as confiscation of any drone equipment, and may subject violators to any damages, including, but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy and/or physical or personal injuries or property damage, as well as regulatory fines and legal fees.  


Telluride Ski & Golf Service Animal Policy

Telluride Ski and Golf Resort prohibits discrimination in all of its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and where applicable, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, reprisal, or because all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program.  Any person who has a service animal has the right to be accompanied by the service animal at the Telluride Ski and Golf Resort, in all places of public accommodation, in accordance with Federal and State law.  TSG supports the use of trained service animals which meet current ADA guidelines, which include, but are not limited to: remaining under direct control of the user at all times, be housebroken, and be trained and utilized for a specific disability per ADA regulations.  At all times, a service animal must be under the control of its handler. A service animal shall have a harness, leash, or other tether, unless either the handler is unable because of a disability to use a harness, leash, or other tether, or the use of a harness, leash, or other tether would interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of work or tasks, in which case the service animal must be otherwise under the handler’s control (e.g., voice control, signals, or other effective means).

Authorized personnel will request that a service animal be removed from the premises if: (1) The animal is out of control and the animal’s handler does not take immediate effective action to control it; or (2) The animal is not housebroken. If the service animal is removed, TSG will make all reasonable efforts so the individual with a disability may participate in the services or activities without having the service animal on premises.  In the interest of safety, service animals will not be allowed on chairlifts or on ski trails during operating hours.  Service dogs are permitted in chondola cabins.  Due to size and weight restrictions, miniature horses will not be permitted in chondola cabins.  TSG restricts the use of animals on chair lifts to dogs specifically trained, or in the process of being trained for avalanche search and rescue work and which are under direct control of TSG personnel.  Service animals are allowed on ski trails following TSG uphill policy during non-operating hours.  The use of service animals on chairlifts and ski terrain directly conflicts with TSG’s safety requirements and impedes the reasonably safe operation of TSG’s on mountain activities.  These safety concerns include the real potential for conflicts between service animals and skiers and are compounded by the large volume of slope and trail use.  These safety requirements are based on actual risk and are not intended to be discriminatory in any way.  


Telluride Ski & Golf Other Power-Driven Mobility Device Policy

Winter: Telluride Ski and Golf Resort (“TSG”) prohibits discrimination in all programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and where applicable, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, reprisal, or because all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program.  As always, manually-powered mobility aids, such as walkers, crutches, canes, braces, or other similar devices designed for use by individuals with mobility disabilities are welcome. A person who has a disability is allowed to utilize any equipment that has been designed and manufactured primarily for use by individuals who have disabilities.  Examples of such equipment include but are not limited to sit-skis, monoskis, outriggers, and blind bibs.  However, Telluride Ski and Golf Resort prohibits the use of any power driven devices or vehicles within the Ski Resort boundaries, including other power-driven mobility devices (“OPDMDs”) even when used by disabled individuals.  The use of power driven vehicles by the public, including OPDMDs, poses a direct conflict with TSG’s legitimate safety requirements for the safe operation of its ski area.  These safety concerns are compounded by large volume of ski slope and trail use at TSG.  These safety requirements are based on actual risks and are not intended to be discriminatory in any way.

Summer: Telluride Ski and Golf Resort (“TSG”) prohibits discrimination in all programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and where applicable, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, reprisal, or because all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program.  As always, manually-powered mobility aids, such as walkers, crutches, canes, braces, or other similar devices designed for use by individuals with mobility disabilities are welcome. The use of any power driven devices or vehicles on trails and summer roads by the public, including other power-driven mobility devices (“OPDMDs”) used by disabled individuals, creates a substantial risk of serious harm to the immediate environment and natural resources. Due to the need to address soil integrity, erosion and vegetative concerns along with guest safety, TSG has adopted a “no motorized” policy for the public during the summer season. Additionally, TSG resides on United States Forest Service Land and any public motorized use, including the use of OPDMDs, would violate Federal land management laws and regulations, as well as the Town of Mountain Village’s Community Development Code.


Telluride Ski & Golf Paragliding Policy

Telluride Ski and Golf Resort (TSG) requires all hang gliders/paragliders at the Telluride Ski Resort to hold a valid, current Telluride Air Force (TAF) membership, as well as a current, valid United States Hangliding/Paragliding Association (USHPA) membership, and TSG further requires all hang gliders/paragliders show a USHPA membership card to any TSG personnel, upon request, prior to loading any lift or otherwise accessing a launch site on TSG land.

Summer:  TSG allows access to the Gold Hill launch sites and Milk Run launch site from approximately April 15th through October 15th subject to accessibility and safety for travel along the roads.  Landing within in the ski area boundary is prohibited. All pilots must have clearance through Telluride Air Force to fly off our mountain.  TSG can close access for Hang Gliders and paragliders at any time deemed appropriate, at TSG’s sole discretion.
