An Alternative That Is Just As Fun (If Not More)
Nordic Skiing & Snowshoeing for the 2018/2019 winter season is coming soon! Stay tuned for more information!
We boast about our Winter Trail System for good reason: using a Piston Bully 100 Snowcat, we groom almost 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. We do ask that foot and bike traffic stays to the sides of the trails, off the classic grooves.
The following trails are part of the Winter Trail System. 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.
|Boomerang Trail||1.5 Kilometers|
|Campbell Peak View Trail||2.5 Kilometers|
|Double Eagle Loop||1 Kilometer|
|Elk Crossing Trail||1 Kilometer|
|Goose Connector Trail||.5 Kilometers|
|Skunk Creek Trail||4 Kilometers|
|Wilson Loop||2 Kilometers|
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.

Mountain Village has started packing down some of the Nordic trails to establish a base. Currently the cart paths have 4-6" of powder which packs down to 1-2". We need at least a foot of new snow before we can groom to avoid damage to golf course and grooming equipment. Thanks!
