Prospect Bowl - Skiing Telluride, Colorado

One sunny day, the beautiful snow princess waved her magic wand and created Prospect Bowl.

On Jan. 12, 2002, over 3,000 winter enthusiasts converged on the mountain to officially drop the rope in Prospect Bowl, 733 acres of new terrain that nearly doubled the size of the mountain. This monumental event ushered in a new era for Telluride as the grand opening of Prospect Bowl signified a vision 30 years in the making.

Now in its second year, Prospect Bowl is still the biggest news in ski country. Telluride has invested $14 million in capital expenditures to create one of the most memorable and unique experiences in ski country. Three new Doppelmayr high-speed detachable quad lifts open incredible terrain and world-class views to skiers of all abilities.

Prospect Bowl links two sides of the mountain. From serene to extreme, this inviting stash of intimate glades, bowls and trails bridges the gap between experts and novices. Prospect Bowl adds friendly cruisers and corduroy groomers, helping beginner and intermediate skiers and riders break through to the next level. The new terrain coupled with world renowned expert runs transforms the mountain from a three-day resort into a week-long destination.

AN UNPARALLELED SETTING
Flanked by jagged and dramatic peaks on all sides, skiers and riders who enter Prospect Bowl experience the sensation of being in the Alps, with peaks close enough to reach out and touch. This inspirational setting has a hypnotic effect, encouraging guests to leave the realities of the everyday world behind and simply enjoy the breathtaking serenity of the mountains. The soothing atmosphere provokes a renewed sense of discovery, simplicity and balance.

AT UTE PARK, BEGINNERS START AT THE TOP
Uncharacteristic of the typical, boulevard-wide bunny slopes, Ute Park, the new beginner training area in Prospect Bowl, is nestled at the bottom of a dramatic bowl with breathtaking mountain backdrops. Gently rolling groomed and contoured terrain actively assists the learning process as novice skiers and snowboarders explore areas of the mountain previously accessible only to accomplished skiers. Powder-covered glades and rolling terrain delight instead of intimidate, leading to a relaxed backcountry adventure.

EVEN "MORE TELLURIDE" FOR THE EXPERT SKIER Of course Prospect Bowl also offers experts a challenging playground with ample opportunity for freshies and face shots. Topping out at 12,260 feet, the Gold Hill Lift accesses former hike-to terrain filled with chutes, above treeline bowls and heart stopping steeps. In the shadow of towering 13,319-foot Palmyra Peak, the Prospect Lift offers mind-expanding views with terrain to match. Skiers and riders test the steeps off the lift or earn their turns by hiking up Prospect Ridge or Bald Mountain. Powder hounds have plenty of opportunity for fresh tracks as Prospect Bowl receives an abundance of snow due to its elevation and northwest exposure.

A COLORFUL HISTORY AND AN EXCITING FUTURE
Prospect Bowl showcases Telluride's authenticity and colorful history. With trail names themed after mining, Prospect Bowl offers guests a snapshot of the "days of old". From May Girl to Magnolia to Little Maude, each trail tells a story of the rough and tumble days of Telluride's past.

Ute Park honors the first inhabitants of the Telluride Valley, the Ute Indians. When they discovered Telluride thousands of years ago, they sensed a powerful spirit and deemed the valley sacred. This magical feeling of Telluride lives on today in the mystifying beauty of Prospect Bowl.
