Post-Season Uphill Access
April 8th through May 25th
Beginning April 8th, non-motorized Uphill Access will be allowed within the Telluride Ski Area Boundaries with intermittent closures in select areas. Mountain Operations remain underway including plowing of summer access roads, lift maintenance and mountain maintenance. Uphill travelers should beware of snowmobiles, snowcasts, and other heavy machinery, road cuts through ski runs and restricted access in some areas due to construction and maintenance. Backcountry protocol should be followed as the slopes will not be mitigated for avalanches and snow safety until next season.
In-season Uphill Access
Uphill access is only permitted on ski trails in the Lift 10 “Sunshine” pod, with the exception of Sundance Ski Trail, during hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Authorized uphill activities include Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, uphill skinning, trail walking, and running. Fat Tire biking is permitted in the same area after the ski operations at 4:30 until 10:00 pm. Uphill access on the rest of the Telluride Ski Resort is prohibited. Users do so at their own risk.
