Telluride Ski Resort’s opening and closing dates for each winter season are set a year in advance based on our historical traveler demand, to help facilitate vacation and travel planning for our visitors. The seasonal air schedule is also based on this, and ramps down during these final weeks.
Despite an outstanding snow year without air service Telluride is not proximate to a regional population center that would provide sufficient skier volume to generate enough revenues to offset operating expenses in an extended season scenario.
In addition, the Telluride community has a tradition of a two week Spring Break that is scheduled the two weeks immediately following the pre-announced closing date of the ski resort.
Last year, the ski resort did increase the length of its historical operating season by a week from closing the first Sunday in April to closing the second Sunday in April due to the timing of the Easter holiday.
For planning purposes, Telluride Ski & Golf has already set its winter season operating dates for 2019/2020. Opening day is scheduled for Thursday, November 28, 2019 and closing day is scheduled for Sunday, April 5, 2020.
