Overview

The Tribe is attending in full force this year. We have two routes to the gondola so we can load both stations in Telluride and Town of Mountain Village efficiently. Looking to ease into your morning? Take Route 1 for 200' of climbing along the Valley Floor Trail towards the Town of Telluride. Remember, the more we split the group, the less you'll have to wait in line at either end of the gondola.

Need to Know

This route includes the free Telluride gondola to the St. Sophia Station from mile ~3.6 to 4.5.

Description

From the top of the Gondola at Station St. Sophia, continue along the main route on Prospect Trail to the new Magic Meadows Trail through the Alta Lakes area, across HWY back to T-35 aka "Sunshine Trail" and Galloping Goose back to Tribe HQ.

If you're looking to tack on extra suffer miles for the weekend, check out the Tribe Gathering Alternative Route. This starts and end at Tribe HQ and with a net elevation gain/loss of 2400'. This will not be included in the Main Group Ride on Saturday. No course markings or event medics will be present.
