Telluride Via Ferrata Eyes Historic U.S. Forest Service Designation

We’ve got some exciting news to share about the Telluride Via Ferrata (TVF)! This summer Mountain Trip is stepping up our game for an important cause by doubling the donation to the Telluride Mountain Club’s TVF Sustainability Fund. Starting in June, for every climber we guide on this iconic route, Mountain Trip will donate $10 ? to the fund.

The Telluride Via Ferrata Sustainability Fund was established in 2019 to help provide resources to sustain and maintain the route, and since then Mountain Trip has donated more than $18,000 directly to the fund.

Why? Because we’re not just about scaling mountains; we’re about preserving them too.

This year additional funds are being raised to support the TVF’s adoption into the U.S. Forest Service trail system, which would make TVF the very FIRST ? via ferrata route in the U.S. to receive official designation. Officially making the TVF part of the U.S. Forest Service’s trail system will further conservation efforts and ensure the long-term sustainability of this popular outdoor attraction. This significant development will increase protection and stewardship for the iconic route and highlights a community-wide commitment to sustainable outdoor recreation. ?

Not only would this be a win for conservation, but it also means ensuring this precious resource remains free and open to the public for years to come. It’s a massive undertaking, but with the combined efforts of local community partners and environmental advocates, we believe we can make a difference. ?️✨

By choosing Mountain Trip as your TVF trip leader, every guest becomes a part of the mission to protect outdoor spaces for everyone. So, if you’re as passionate about the TVF as we are, consider taking another trip with us. It’s more than just an adventure – it’s a legacy!
