Telluride Ski Area

Telluride has come a long way since its early days as a small Colorado mining town. The mountains have always drawn people to this area, first to search for precious minerals, and later to ski and snowboard on their snow-covered slopes. Now, Telluride offers one of Colorado’s best ski resort experiences. They have a huge variety of terrain, and massive vert (over 4,000 vertical feet) which ensures that there’s a run for everyone. Telluride is also one of the few ski resorts that are also truly located in a ski town. There’s a free gondola from downtown to the resort’s base area, so it’s easy to get around and enjoy the nightlife.

James Niehues’s Telluride ski map manages to capture both the massive scope and scale of Telluride, along with its quaint charm. It manages to feel both world-class, and homely, no small feat for a ski resort in the twenty-first century. Whether you’ve spent some of the best years of your life ski bumming in Telluride, or you just had a vacation to remember, this hand-painted trail map captures the essence of the Telluride experience.
