Nordic Skiing & Snowshoeing

During the winter, Mountain Village grooms approximately eight miles of winter trails to create a quality surface for as many users as possible. Our winter trails accommodate skiers, hikers, snowshoers and bikers as well as dogs who are accompanied by a responsible dog owner.

While it might seem like there’s plenty of snow out there, it’s still pretty thin in many areas where nordic grooming activities take place and we risk damaging both the golf course and our equipment.

Rest assured that our grooming crew is chomping at the bit to get out there and lay some fresh corduroy for your skiing and dog walking pleasure! (This photo is from last winter.)

Thank you for your patience while we wait for the next big storm. We will post here and on the Nordic Twitter account when we are able to groom again.

We do ask that foot and bike traffic stay to the sides of the trails, off the classic grooves. Nordic skiing has resumed for the winter. Stay Up-to-Date with Mountain Village Nordic Groomer updates via Twitter.

Each one is interconnected, starting at the Telluride Valley Floor via the Boomerang Trail and continuing up to Mountain Village’s winter trails, which are located on the Telluride Ski & Golf Company’s golf course. These trails reach into Mountain Village Center and extend out to the Mountain Village entrance. Please review our nordic and snowshoe trails map to help navigate our trail system.

Trail Access

For your convenience, there are multiple access points to our winter trails. If you are driving, you may access the trails from Adams Ranch Road, 100 yards north of the intersection at Mountain Village Boulevard where there is free parking along the roadway. Or if you’re in Mountain Village Center, access is available from The Peaks Resort and The Peaks ski trail, at the top of the chondola. For those in need of classic or skate skis or snowshoes, visit one of our local retail sports shops. And after you are done, come relax next to one of our fire pits in Mountain Village Center.
