“Telluride Vision 2025:” Telluride Ski Resort to Release a Draft Update of Its Master Plan
Over the course of 2010, the Telluride Ski Resort has been seeking public opinion in conjunction with their “Telluride Vision 2025” update of the ski resort master development plan, as requested by the US Forest Service. Telski hopes to release a draft version of this update during the winter of 2011.
Several public meetings and two online surveys have taken place, and once the draft plan is in place, Telski plans to hold additional meetings and surveys to garner public feedback on the draft plan.
Thousands of people, both locally and around the world, fi lled out online and physical questionaires to give their opinions on the relative importance of these proposed changes and improvements.
One survey posed questions about such things as adding more lifts in locations such as Bald Mountain, Black Iron Bowl, and Palmyra Peak, adding numerous, smaller on-mountain restaurants, adding zip lines and more summer trails to the ski mountain, and adding more intermediate and gladed terrain.
Another survey dealt exclusively with the public’s opinion on adding a lift to an area known
as Delta Bowl, located in Bear Creek to the southeast of Revelation Bowl. According to Telski, the installation of this lift could be done via helicopter and existing roads, with minimal environmental impact.
