Telluride Ski Resort has been online soliciting public feedback before submitting a new master development plan to the U.S. Forest Service. This fall, the resort asked for opinions on upgrading or adding lifts, potential restaurant locations, and whether to build a wind turbine or dome for growing local produce.
Many respondents in an online questionnaire said it was important to add a high-altitude lift in Delta Bowl, which would require a boundary expansion. Respondents had mixed opinions on the turbine and grow dome, and weren’t that eager for night skiing or for lifts to connect the ski area to the nearby towns of Silverton or Ophir.
The resort expects to have a draft of the plan ready this winter. Results for the survey may be reviewed at: http://telluridevision2025.com.
