With another incredible ski season in the books, Telluride Ski Resort looks to an unforgettable spring and summer this year. An above-average snowfall only means fuller rivers and lakes, and a greener San Juans—making the already dramatic landscape more scenic than ever, further complementing popular summer activities like golfing, hiking, and the new Telluride Bike Park.
As the resort heads into its famed summer festival season, below are a few highlights of what’s new in Telluride to keep in mind as you plan your summer getaway to the San Juans. You can discover more details and highlights in our What’s New Summer Guide here.

Mountain Village will host Telluride Reserve, a new food and wine event set for Aug. 15-18. Small groups of guests will be able to wine, dine and interact with a diverse collection of award-winning chefs, winemakers and culinary influencers—set within Mountain Village private homes and venues like Allred’s, Telluride’s flagship restaurant—with no giant tents in sight.
TELLURIDE BIKE PARK
Through Telluride’s million-dollar investment, the new Telluride Bike Park will showcase miles of gravity-fed flow trails, smooth sweeping turns on a rain-absorbent surface and arching bridges. Camps and guides are also offered for riders of all abilities and age groups. The bike park is set to open July 2019.
COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS AT TEX
For the first time in its history, Telluride Regional Airport (TEX) will offer commercial jet service. Denver Air Connection will launch daily flights on the 30-seat jet from Denver (DEN) to TEX on May 15, 2019. The flights will operate year-round.
THE PEAKS RESORT & SPA
Lower oxygen and increased UV exposure in higher altitudes can wreak havoc on the skin. Telluride vacationers often visit The Spa at The Peaks to get high-altitude massage treatments and HydraFacials that use Naturopathica and Tata Harper (a brand new partnership with The Spa) products respectively to replenish their skin. The Spa has also developed new treatments to accommodate mountain bikers exploring the Telluride Bike Park this summer.
