Telluride Ski Lifts
There are a total of 18 lifts at Telluride, which are capable of transporting 22,386 people per hour: two high-speed gondolas, seven high-speed quads, two triples, two doubles, one platter, two magic carpets, and one surface lift, plus a couple of T-bars. The lift system on the Telluride Ski Mountain has drastically changed within the last couple of years. Lifts 4 and 5, which used to be triple and double lifts, have been transformed into high-speed quads, and now three new high-speed detachable quad lifts operate on the open bowls and trails of Prospect Bowl. In the coming years it is hoped to add two more lifts in Prospect Bowl, plus an additional on-mountain restaurant. The lift system uses the latest hi-tech chip technology and operates from 8:45 am to 4:00 pm.
