Telluride gets input before drafting master plan
TELLURIDE — Telluride Ski Resort is getting some feedback from the public before submitting a new master development plan to the U.S. Forest Service.
The resort expects to have a draft of the plan ready this winter.
This fall it asked for opinions on upgrading or adding lifts, potential restaurant locations, and whether to build a wind turbine or dome for growing local produce.
Many respondents in an online questionnaire said it was important to add a high-altitude lift in Delta Bowl, which would require a boundary expansion. Respondents had mixed opinions on the turbine and grow dome, and weren’t that eager for night skiing or for lifts to connect the ski area to the nearby towns of Silverton or Ophir.
