Telluride Winter Carnival 2022

January 29th – February 5th, 2022

Update: Trip is filled up. Contact trip leader to be added to the waitlist

Telluride is considered one of Colorado’s best ski resorts and one of the best in the country—and for good reason. Telluride sees more than 300 inches of snow a year and 300 days of sunshine to match (yes, even when it’s snowy). And the mountain is high: the base is 9,300 feet and peaking at 13,150 feet above sea level.

Perhaps the resort’s best feature? Unlike many other world-renowned ski resorts, Telluride doesn’t have long lift lines, thanks to its remote location. Telluride is about 200 miles (a more than six-hour drive) southwest of Denver.

The small, eight-by-12 block town itself is an adorable, European-style village set in a canyon of tall mountain peaks. Although it’s most well-known as a winter destination, music and food festivals draw visitors in the warmer months.
