YPO Telluride intermediate ski camp is designed for skiers who would like to up their game on the resort slopes. The program’s main focus will be building confidence and developing skills so you can enjoy yourself and feel safe on challenging terrain.

YPO Telluride advanced ski camp will focus on Telluride’s renowned in-bounds terrain, as well as our back-country options if the conditions allow. Telluride’s unique heli-skiing will also be available to this group. The San Juan’s offer some of the most rugged side country skiing in the most beautiful setting of Colorado, which is truly special to Telluride.

Noah Sheedy, Director of the Telluride Ski School will head up a team of Telluride’s best private instructors for both the advanced and intermediate groups in this program. We will also bring in a Colorado based ski celeb with background in big mountain skiing to teach techniques on safety and risk assessment in the mountains. In addition the amazing skiing, all the finer aspects of Telluride will be incorporated into the afternoons & evenings in true YPO style.
