Andrea Schlegel

Telluride Nordic Director

Andrea Schlegel

Andrea was born and raised in Colorado. She first visited Telluride with her husband Dave, in 2007. They both felt the magical draw of the box canyon, and it wasn’t long before Telluride became home. Andrea tried Nordic skiing for the first time after moving to Telluride. She instantly fell in love with the sport and with the Nordic community. Being a part of the Telluride Nordic Center is Andrea’s favorite job because she loves meeting people, connecting through conversation, spreading her passion for Nordic sport and expanding the Nordic family.
