Zipping Into Summer! Telluride Canopy Adventure Opens

Sometimes you don’t know what you’re missing until that thing appears! This summer one of those things opens for the first time — the Telluride Canopy Adventure!

This summer Telluride visitors will be able to enjoy the brand new Telluride Canopy Adventure. Climb up to heights of up to 140 feet for an aerial experience you won’t forget including ziplining, bridge crossings, and rappelling.

 

Get your adrenaline pumping in this exciting new mountain adventure experience. You’ll enjoy a safety briefing and get geared up before riding the Village Express Chairlift to your adventure training area. Once there you’ll be off on your sky high journey including five ziplines, two aerial bridges and two rappels. Along the way, take in the views of the surrounding San Juan Mountains and breathe in that fresh mountain air.

At the end of your tour, you’ll catch a ride back to the Mountain Village Core where you can enjoy any number of post-adventure drinks or meals.

The adventure will take you approximately 3 hours beginning to end and will cost you $675 for a private, guided experience including up to 6 guests. Tours start at 9am and the last tour departs at 2:30pm. Telski asks that guests arrive at the Adventure Center 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time.
