Default Group trip to telluride

So the university club is heading to telluride in january. Anyone know how kind it is to a low intermediate boarder? The deal is $595 per person for 6 nights lodging, 4 day pass, transportation included. Without transportation it's $475.

To anyone who's been there, is there a point to bringing your own vehicle? Cause for two people, the cost of gas would be about the same as taking the bus, and if i need to drive around places in town, it would be nice to have my own wheels.

The town is pretty small and better walked than driven. The village express lift and the polar express lift have some nice low intermeditate runs. Lizard head pass is an adventure when driving it in a heavy snow. It is on the highway coming in from the south.

Telluride is where I ride every year. Tons of intermediate terrain. No point in a car...the gondola can take you from mountain village to telluride. It is free and runs til midnight or something like that. They named the lifts last year and I still don't remember them. Lifts 4, 5, 10, 11, and 12 all have great intermediate terrain. 4 and 10 are base lifts so a lot of people ride and ski there. Lines will never be bad though...at all...ever. 5 has lots of blues and double blues and is above 4...kinda you get there from 4 anyway. Generally that side of the mountain sees more traffic than 10, 11, and 12. On a powder day a lot of the powder is skied off on 4 and 5 by lunch time, but on 10, 11, and 12 it can be found well past that. Telluride is an amazing mountain and you will love it...I do! I need to buy my pass here pretty soon and hopefully I will shoot my elk before the Telluride ski swap so I can go to it...if not I will be hunting instead.

Looks like the lifts are named on the map, but show the numbers too. Hope this helps.

yeah thanks, apparently the place they lined up to stay at is Telluride Hotels, Condos & Lodging | Mountain Lodge at Telluride | Telluride Condominiums

Ever stay there? Thanks for the advice so far! I'm excited, I'm hoping it all works out!
