Telluride Ski Resort Takes Advantage of Longer Days
New Belgium Event and a Shift in Operating Hours this Spring
Telluride, Colorado (March 09, 2012) – As spring approaches with warmer days and cold nights, the best snow conditions for skiing and riding the mountain occur mid-morning and into the late afternoons. In order for guests to make the most of these great snow conditions, the resort will shift its current operating hours of 9am-4pm to 10am-5pm in conjunction with Daylight Savings on Sunday, March 11. The time shift optimizes the snow conditions with the day’s temperatures, which is also ideal dining conditions at all of Telluride’s on-mountain establishments.
“Shifting operating hours is a great way to ski the best snow during the spring season,” said Telluride Ski & Golf CEO Dave Riley. “It has been well received the past few years by our guests.”
In celebration of spring and the beautiful weather, don’t forget to come out for the New Belgium Scavenger Hunt, Saturday, March 17. Grab some friends, don your wildest costumes and ski around the mountain in search of Big Foot, the giant chicken and their cast of characters to win prizes and raise many for the local non-profit Telluride Adaptive Ski Program. And mark your calendars for the end of season bash Easter Weekend!
Be sure to look into Stay & Ski packages starting at $125 per person, per night and 4th Night Free specials during these last few weeks of the ski season. For more information on opportunities for deals in Telluride or call 1.800.778.8581.
