About Telluride Ski and Golf Resort
Telluride Ski Resort is tucked away in the rugged San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado. Telluride has a colorful mining history and now the town has made the progression from pick to powder. Once dubbed “To-Hell-You-Ride” from its mining town days, the town of Telluride was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964.
We live and work in a place of extreme beauty and enjoy a lifestyle most only dream of. We understand that we are stewards of an amazing place and we take this responsibility very seriously. We are seeking like-minded individuals who share our passion for this resort, these mountains, and for providing a great experience for our team and our guests.
