I love Telluride.  The views are spectacular, the skiing is awesome, and getting turnt up at the Gonorrhea Ranch soaking up the sun is fun.  Friends of ours have a ski-in/out house in Mountain Village that I can use whenever.  I do promise that I will arrange a PASR trip at some point...I know @mbike-ski is interested.  If only they were on the IKON pass.

I have only skied here once. Doing a 3 day women’s clinic this time. The drive is such a bitch that I am sticking around the area until the 20th. If you put together a PASR trip I would definitely come.  I only got the base Epic Pass as I didn’t think I would use Telluride. Regretting that now, probably would have paid for the upgrade just in these 3 days.

My first time there we drove from Denver.  Not fun.  The drive from Montrose is easy (and pretty).

Barb you know I almost moved to Durango a year before I went to Bozeman. I visited it first and then worked at Merrill lynch a year and decided on Bozeman.  Almost as many University if Vermont graduates as Boulder and Jackson hole.

I love the drive from Denver but it's long, full of mule deer though. 

Telluride is so god Damn cool, only thing more beautiful in the lower 48 is the Silverton to ouray.

Ouray to Silverton is definitely beautiful. First time I did that drive was on the back of the motorcycle and was blown away.

 

And Doug I have only been to Durango once and was not impressed. But it was at the end of a week long motorcycle trip and I was kinda cranky. After 6 days of cool summer mountain temps we rolled into Durango and it was 90 degrees.

Wow they don’t mess around at these women’s clinics. Skied bell to bell with a short break for lunch. I was able to take my phone out once super quick for a few pics. It they really keep you moving.

3 different instructors said they didn’t like the way my boots fit and after the lesson had me go to the boot doctor near the mountain. The guy was flabbergasted that I had a full size too small. Told him that’s what the boot guy in Boulder does. He is keeping the boots overnight and gonna try and stretch the plastic. We shall see tomorrow. But my feet were absolutely killing me after skiing all day. So if his adjustment doesn’t work I may have to bite the bullet and just buy a new pair. Which sucks cause I just got these last season. But the instructors said the boots were affecting my form so guess maybe I have to.

Only if you stop complaining about the bumps at Blue 😃

What do bumps or lack thereof at Blue have to do with Telluride?

Sounds like a serious clinic. One where you can really learn something. Every clinic I’ve taken around here spend way too much time stopping mid mountain and chatting, and I feel I’m never in the right ability level.

Some scary stories about the people who snow plow that road. We were at Ouray last year doing some keeping on the old mining roads.

When I was working in Butte, we would fly out of Bozeman every Thursday night and go downtown for the street fair during the summer. Restaurants would be packed.

Not nice enough to sit outside, was cold and windy all day. Good  snow conditions, about 3” overnight.

Ended up getting new boots at lunch so I missed about an hour of the day but the feel sooooooo much better.

Short hike before we left Crested Butte this morning. As soon as I stepped off the packed down trail to take a picture I sank. Weather supposed to be pretty bad tomorrow. Lots of wind with the snow so not sure what our day looking like. Ice climbing Saturday.
