Telluride- know before you go


Breanne Brasier, Reporter

Telluride Ski Resort will be opening November 26th, but there will be some changes to rules on the mountain due to COVID-19. 

Telluride Colorado is a tourist attraction for native Colorado residents and incoming visitors. With Telluride being a huge tourist stop for many people, effective COVID-19 protocols are set in place this ski season.

With only 42 days until ski season, it is important to know this year’s plan for Telluride.

For transportation, shuttles will still be available.

Not a surprise, face coverings/masks will be required when 6ft social distancing can not be maintained both indoor and outdoor. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at various locations throughout the mountain including all base areas. Lift lines will be set up for 6ft social distancing and only one party per chair lift, or single person riding only.

This ski season, there are no same day pass purchases. You must purchase your passes in advance. Ski schools only allow for advance reservations only as well.

For the restaurants in Mountain Village, half capacity seating will be enforced and call in orders will be available wherever possible.

It is important to know what you might be dealing with this ski season.
