Mountain biking has long been a staple of Telluride’s summer adventure offerings, but during summer of 2019, Telluride Ski Resort is elevating the game with the brand new Telluride Bike Park. This new and completely unique lift-served experience offers variety of interconnected free ride, technical & cross-country trails, camps and guides for all abilities. Whether you’re a never-ever biker or an expert, this new biking experience has something for you!

The Telluride Bike Park is expected to open July 5 (weather permitting). The Telluride Bike Park will feature new free ride trails in addition to enhancements to the existing network of technical trails and to the existing network of multi-use XC Trails within the resort area. Bikers will be able to use the Village Express (Lift 4) located right in the Mountain Village core to access the Telluride Bike Park!

Visitors can expect Phase I of the Telluride Bike Park to be completed in 2019, to include approximately 15 trails spread over 17 miles. There will be approximately 5 miles of Green Trails, 8 miles of Blue Trails and 4 miles of Black Trails, offering a variety of rated terrain to explore.

During operating hours, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., lift access to the Mountain Bike Trail Network will require an access pass. Before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. the free ride and technical trails in the Bike Park are closed, but riders can access the XC Trails without an access pass. XC trails usual include a mix of rolling terrain, uphill climbs and downhill stretches consisting of multi-use single-track, double-track, and service roads and these trails allow for hiking and biking.

Under pressure.

A strong high pressure has been looming over Colorado, and most of the west, for the past week and is set to stay here until the end of the month (although I just looked at the forecast and there is now something on the horizon at the end of the week). Maybe if you ask me my thoughts on this weather in a week the story will be different, but at the moment it is absolute heaven. Temperatures have been hovering in the balmy 40’s. The sun is shining and Telluride Ski Resort is skiing to perfection!

Last week was a little rough – a baby with the flu is not something I would wish on anyone. But I got the green light of freedom on Saturday morning, and I shot off in an upward direction, face basking in the sun, skis freshly waxed and ready to make some turns.

It was such a perfect weekend on the mountain. Revelation Bowl was groomed and skiing like a dream. We took a few laps on Chair 5, admiring the attractive new seating arrangement at Bon Vivant – deck chairs and umbrellas facing south west. Henry’s was also groomed. Same with Bushwacker, Plunge and my cruisy favorite, Lookout. Lunch at Guiseppe’s (Black Bean Saute of course) and we called it a day.

Take a peek at these photos from the weekend in Telluride!
