NOTICE: Telluride Nordic Association is currently seeking a Trail Operations Coordinator/Groomer. Click HERE to view the job description.
Note: Scheduled grooming at the Priest and Trout Lake trails has ended for the season. End of season cleanup and storage activities will be taking place through the month of April. Additional grooming may take place if there is significant new snow prior to storage of grooming equipment. Any further grooming will be noticed via a grooming Tweet.
See the latest updates in the grooming tweets below
VALLEY FLOOR: Grooming on the Valley Floor has ended for the season.
PRIEST LAKE: Priest Lake was groomed Friday April 5th for skate and classic skiing. That will be the last regular grooming for the season.
Priest Lake Parking: There is limited parking at Priest Lake. Please do not constrict the access drive. It is also important to maintain a snowmobile path between the garage and the trail (at the handicap parking sign). If the lot is full, please park across the highway on San Bernardo Road.
TROUT LAKE: Trout Lake was groomed Friday April 5th for skate and classic skiing. That will be the last regular grooming for the season.
Crust skiing at Lizard Head should be possible through most of April. Crust skiing will be best before 10:30 am. Avoid shady areas and more northerly exposures where the snowpack may not support your weight.
Trout Lake is a multi-use trail. Skiers may encounter snowmobiles and snowshoers. Snowmobiles should yield to skiers and keep to the uphill (south) side of the trail.
AVALANCHE DANGER: There are several points along the Trout Lake RR Grade with adjacent (south side) slopes that are prone to small avalanche slides. Skiers should exercise caution at these locations (anywhere there is a slope greater than 30 degrees with the toe of the slope ending on the RR Grade trail).
Please do not park along Trout Lake Road or at the snowplow turnaround. If you are unsure whether your vehicle can make it all the way to the parking lot, please access the trail from Lizard Head Pass. Please remember to observe the 15 mph speed limit on Trout Lake Road.
