When the Ski Legs Need a Break

Day Four Of The Trip To (1)

Posted by on 20 February 2015

When you need a break from the slopes, Telluride’s backyard offers an unlimited supply of outdoor adventure.  The list of possibilities is endless but a few of our favorites are mentioned below. Take a snowmobile to a historic ghost town, test your hand at ice climbing, take a glide on the Nordic side or hop on a fat tire bike.


Telluride  Atla Lakes 480x720 72 RGB 300x450

An extensive network of groomed trails just outside Telluride & Mountain village create a snowmobiler’s paradise. OR venture further into the backcountry with local outfitters who offer snowmobile tours for all ages and experience levels. 

Ice Climbing

Strap on your crampons and grab your ice axe as the alpine setting of the San Juan Mountains offers world-renowned ice climbing. Local guides can help navigate the frozen waterfalls speckled throughout Telluride’s backyard. 

Nordic Skiing

Nordic Skiing (1) 300x450

Nordic terrain offers a change of scenery and a great work out. Groomed tracks are located in Telluride Town Park, on the  Valley Floor, on the Mountain Village golf course, at Trout and Priest Lakes and at the top of Chair Ten (TopATen) on the ski area. The Telluride Nordic Center in Telluride Town Park is a great resource for trail conditions, lessons and gear rentals
