The Peaks Resort & Spa Diary

Getting to experience the Colorado mountains is a memorable experience. Anyone in Telluride or Mountain Village can tell you that. However, one of the best ways to understand that for yourself is to see it and ski on it. There are some spectacular trails and views nearby The Peaks Resort and Spa. We have a great cross country skiing trail that starts right on the Telluride Peaks Resort and Spa property. So we recommend that you strap on some cross country skis and explore these Telluride cross country skiing trails.

Mountain Village

During the winter months, Mountain Village grooms more than eight miles of cross-country skiing trails. The great thing about the Mountain Village trails is that they connect to many more routes. These trails are immediately accessible from The Peaks Resort and Spa, making this an ideal place to start.

Priest Lake

This trail can be found more than 12 miles south of Telluride. The area includes many interconnected trails. Also, this trail is dog friendly so keep that in mind while you are skiing. It’s another beautiful area with fantastic rolling hills and loops.

Telluride Nordic Center

This is a great place to start. Telluride Nordic Center has groomed trails between the Town Park and Ice Pavilion. It also provides cross-country ski rentals and lessons. It’s perfect for someone who has never skied before but has always been curious.

Trout Lake 

Trout Lake is an incredible place to see in winter. It’s about 14 miles south of Telluride in the Uncompahgre National Forest. The lake offers impressive views, so don’t forget your smartphone or camera on your trip. This is another dog-friendly cross-country ski area.
