The ski runs themselves are steep. The San Juan mtns. are steep and the valley/mesas are flat. Therefore, Telluride has excellent expert and beginner terrain. The least amount of options here would be the "blue" intermediate terrain. The trail map has a fair amount of "blue" on it, but understand that some would be "blacks" at other resorts and some would be "greens." Unlike the summit county area, we do not have endless moderate slopes. For ski lodging in Telluride, the New Sheridan is at the “heart”; it is in fact the “heart”.
