Telluride Ski & Golf Resort is proud to announce the new lift-serviced Telluride Bike Park Grand Opening on next Friday, July 5 at 10 a.m.

The bike park offers riding for all ability levels, including the newly constructed beginner-level flow trail, Tommyknocker. This gravity-fed trail will take you overarching bridges and around bank turns for 5.8 miles.

“The Tommyknocker trail is an exciting new component in Telluride and opens the door for beginner mountain bikers,” said Scott Pittenger, Director of Mountain Operations. “We’re bringing a full suite of trails that’s been crafted for every skill level—and it’s just the beginning.”

Single day passes, season passes, guides and clinics, along with bike rentals are all available now for advance purchase. Additionally, guests will be able to activate their passes online. The Mountain Village Pass & Ticket Office is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., to assist with any Telluride Bike Park questions.

Beginning July 5, both the Oak Street ticket window and Mountain Village ticket office will be open daily to provide support for those accessing the new bike park from Telluride and Mountain Village.

”We are elated to have reached this point—getting the chairlift spinning for bike park access in the backyard is nothing short of a dream come true,” said Carson Taylor, Director of Mountain Sales. “It’s a monumental step for summer recreation, and we’re all stoked to ride the new trails.”

Portions of the proceeds from passes will be donated to the National Forest Foundation (NFF) in support of local hiking and biking trail maintenance. The NFF is a nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service, and promotes the health and public enjoyment of the nation’s 193-million-acre National Forest System.
