Updated 14th of December:

  • Trout Lake is in great shape with good coverage pretty much everywhere. Trout will be groomed for skate and classic most mornings except during storm cycles. Grooming coverage on Wednesdays is not yet in place.
  • Parking is extremely tight at busier times for both the upper and lower Trout trailheads. Please park diagonally at the upper trailhead to maximize parking availability.
  • The Priest Lake parking lot is now open and plowed. Priest trails have good coverage and conditions are very good. Please be alert for grooming operations (equipment and snow farming) on steep trails with limited sight distance!
  • Town Park staff is grooming Town Park trails on a daily basis and most loops are in good conditTion.
  • Town of Telluride has commenced grooming of the Valley Floor. Coverage is still thin and the trails are a bit uneven. The MV will hopefully be able to cat groom the VF soon!
  • Mountain Village has begun grooming operations on MV trails. Look for MVGroomer tweets below for the latest info.
