The Long Run: 50 Years of the Telluride Ski Area
June 2022 – April 2023
From its humble origins to its transformation into a world-class resort, the story of the Telluride Ski Area has been a story of dreams designed, and sometimes deferred, of growth and growing pains, of innovation in the face of challenges, and of a community grappling with change amidst an uncertain future.
2022 marks 50 years of the Telluride Ski Area’s operations. Our new exhibit The Long Run goes back in time, exploring the early beginnings of the ski area, all the way to the expansive and well-known ski area of today. The exhibit features historic photos of the development of the ski area, as well as ski maps, skis, marketing materials, stories, and more! Learn about the people who made Telluride’s ski area possible, the challenges they overcame, and the successes throughout.
