All Uphill access is open as of April 8th, 2016 and will remain open until the closure of the Gondola for the Fall Off-Season on October 17th, 2016.
Non-Motorized Uphill Access is allowed within the Telluride Ski Area Boundaries, those traveling uphill do so at their own risk. Mountain Operations remain underway including plowing of the summer access roads, annual lift maintenance and mountain maintenance. Uphill travelers should beware of snowmobiles, snowcats, and other heavy machinery, roads being cut through ski runs, and restricted access in certain areas due to construction and maintenance. Backcounty protocol should be followed as the slopes will no longer receive any avalanche mitigation until next season.
Please note that from May 15th- June 30th, all of Prospect Basin will be closed due to elk calving. The closure will extend from the Top-a-Ten to the Tempter House, including Ute Park, Prospect Bowl, Bald Mountain, Gold Hill Ridge, and all other associated terrain. Please respect this closure and do not travel in the Prospect Basin area during this time.
Be safe out there!
