Telluride Beginner Ski Trails

Most of the easiest ski trails at Telluride are located right around the Mountain Village area. From the village you can ski down the ski trails; Meadows or The Peaks. These trails will bring you to the base of the Chondola, Big Billies Restaurant, and the base of the Sunshine Express Chairlift. From this area you can access all of the easiest ski terrain at Telluride.

At the top of Meadows you will find a Magic Carpet Surface Lift that is designed for beginners. There is also a second Magic Carpet Surface Lift located just above the ski school and the children’s center.

You can read more about the ski school and children’s ski programs here: Telluride Children’s Programs.

The photo above was taken while looking up the trail: Double Cabin. This shows one of the many bridges that the beginner ski trails on this part of the mountain run under.

Below you can see a section of Meadows – just before the trail widens.

The image below shows the widest part of Meadows. There is enough room here to safely hold ski lessons while accommodating all of the skier traffic on even the busiest day.
