Summer Activities

Summer in Telluride

While Telluride is known worldwide as a ski resort, there is as much, maybe even more, to do in Telluride in the Summer. Telluride is the self proclaimed Summer Festival Capital of Colorado. We have summer festival information on our Festival page under “Dining and Activities”. Families and guests will find there is something for everyone, nerds to jocks, even nerdy jocks! You will definitely have jam pack days in the summer from hiking, four-wheel drive trips over the local mountain passes, horseback riding, sports activities and swimming at the town park and fishing in many local streams to the Telluride Institute, PIN head institute, and Telluride Science Research Center (TSRC). There is even an opportunity to send your kids to day camp, so you can sit and read a book. Even the gondola between Telluride and Mountain Village can be an adventure, and it is free!

Free Concerts, Lectures, Wellness Events and More to Entertain All Summer Long

This summer, Mountain Village will be full of energy with a variety of free, family-friendly events taking place throughout the Village Core. With favorite events such as the Sunset Concert Series returning and additional new activities for guests of all ages added to the schedule, this new programming series will highlight everything Mountain Village has to offer and provide guests with numerous opportunities to explore and enjoy the area.

“Based on the success we’ve seen with individual activities in the past, such as the Music on the Green Concert Series and Family Fun Night, we want to allocate more resources toward providing exciting, year-round programming for Resort guests,” said Matt Windt, vice president of sales & marketing at Telluride Ski Resort. “We always want to provide the very best guest experience in Mountain Village and providing a wider variety of activities that appeal to guests of all ages is critical.”

Throughout the week, visitors can find a number of activities and events that appeal to a wide range of interests. This programming will include:
