Lizard Head Pass Ski Resort Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The scenery is outstanding, the snow is deep, and the descents are fun. It may be hard to believe that with Telluride’s present-day reputation as a ski town, skiing in any major form is a relatively recent evolution here, but it’s true.

The town began in 1875, and for decades its existence was defined by mining. At its height in 1890, Telluride’s population surpassed 5000. The town grew rich from the wealth of ore in the San Juan Mountains that surround it, so much so that Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch began their string of bank robberies at the San Miguel National Bank in 1889."
