DOING YOUR PART – Protecting our Community
As our community continues re-opening in a prudent manner, it is more important than ever to continue with the remarkable job we have been doing to keep our trends moving in the right direction. This success is largely the result of everyone’s vigilance in practicing positive behaviors of appropriate physical distancing, wearing a mask in public, and following good hygiene (like routine hand washing).
To stay on this current path of re-opening, it is critical that we all do our part to keep our community safe, our economy open, and our outlook bright. We can do this together, by each of us being an ambassador for our community through our good behaviors and interactions with others.
OUR VILLAGE – Stronger Together
Be an Ambassador for our community – Follow & share these 5 Commitments of Containment
Masks Required. Towns of Mountain Village & Telluride both have ordinances requiring face coverings inside businesses and public transportation, this includes the gondola. Links below for more info:
Gondola. Opens Monday, June 15; with operating hours 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily. Buses will run after gondola hours until midnight between MV and Telluride. Protocols to promote passenger and staff safety include:

· Cabin Occupancy. One person or one associated party (i.e. family, people travelling together) per cabin.
· Cabin Cleanliness. Disinfected after each passenger disembarks, cabin windows will be kept open to ensure adequate ventilation, and advanced cabin disinfection methods will be in constant use.
