Preserve & Protect the Via Ferrata


Via Ferrata Sustainability Fund

In 2019, the Telluride Mountain Club helped coordinate the establishment of Telluride’s Via Ferrata Sustainability Fund to help preserve and protect Telluride’s unique Via Ferrata route.

This fund has been set up to help protect Telluride’s unique via ferrata well into the future and preserve its free access to the public. As friends of the via ferrata, local guide companies have accepted a role in route stewardship and have generously agreed to help cover costs associated with engineering, analysis, reporting, and more. In an effort to help keep the via ferrata open for the long-term future, partner guide services have added a $5 per person donation allowance that will go directly to the Via Ferrata Sustainability Fund. We can’t thank you enough for your help and support of this special route in the San Juan Mountains.

Donations go towards:

  • Hardware upgrades and replacements
  • Route maintenance
  • Signage
  • Engineering analysis and reports
  • Equipment and supplies
  • Mapping and GPS data
  • Labor coordination
  • So much more!
