Gondola 25th Anniversary Celebration

Location: Mountain Village

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the iconic Mountain Village Telluride Gondola on Saturday, March 12, 2022 at the Telluride Conference Center.

The celebration will include appetizers, a champagne sabre toast, the unveiling of the latest gondola cabin photo booth and 25th-anniversary cabin that will hang on the line, and a custom cake with its own gondola system by Peace of Cake. The event will also include live music from Gravity’s Child, Telluride’s newest mid-to-late-90s tribute band comprised of Sean Mahoney, Leah Heidenreich, Meghan Knowles and Claybrook Penn.

We’re also excited to premiere a short video about the gondola and its importance to our community and hear a poem from former San Miguel County Poet Laureate Daiva Chesonis who was on the original crew that built the gondola.

At this 25-year landmark, we want to know what you envision for the future of the gondola! With over 3 million riders a year, the gondola is the first and only free public transportation of its kind in the U.S. At the end of 2027, the existing operating agreement expires, so the local governments and ski resort are working together to plan the gondola’s future—and your input is essential to make sure it continues to meet the needs of the community!

Please fill out this quick survey to share your vision—and be entered to win a free day lift ticket or gift card!
