Telluride, Colo. (Mar. 26, 2009) – Just as the month of March had warmed everyone up for the summer months to come, a storm rolled through Telluride dropping 21 inches of new snow to assure a great end to the 2008-2009 ski season.
It began to snow early Monday morning dropping four inches and hasn’t stopped since. In the last 24 hours Telluride has seen eight inches of snow with a total of 10” in the last 48 hours. The current base at the top of the mountain is 73”.
“Conditions are spectacular,” said Communications Director Maryhelyn Kirwan. “Snow in Revelation Bowl, Prospect Bowl and Gold Hill is thigh and waist deep.”
The Telluride Ski Resort has extended the ski season an extra week as an appreciation to passholders and guests of the mountain. The Coonskin and Plunge Lifts (7 & 9) and their respective terrain will be open through April 12. All other lifts close April 5.
Telluride’s extended week also offers great discounts. Resort season passes will be valid through April 12. Daily lift tickets will cost $50 a day. Passholders from any resort in North America will be able to purchase $25 lift tickets. Ski & Snowboard School lessons will be available at $100 for a one hour private or $100 for an all-day group lesson.
