Adding to Telluride’s reputation for legendary terrain, the Telluride Ski Resort is thrilled to announce the opening of Black Iron Bowl and the amazingly scenic Revelation Bowl. The hike-to playground of Black Iron Bowl is set against the dramatic backdrop of Palmyra Peak, adding eight runs adjacent to Prospect Bowl, including the wide-open Mountain Quail couloir, European-style faces, open glades and steep chutes. The ‘Alps-like’ terrain of Revelation Bowl offers a powder haven for skiers and boards. Located on the opposite side of Gold Hill, the prevailing winds ‘dump’ powder into Revelation Bowl. With a slope length of 1,876 feet and incredible views of Bear Creek, Revelation Bowl has become known as one of the premier high-alpine powder bowls in the world.
