Well, its that time of year again for the family to head out for some fun at Telluride. After a few weeks of some decent snowfall, we arrived into the town of Telluride embracing 50F temps, and naturally, low expectations of killer snow. However, the high elevation North facing slopes remained in mid-winter shape begging for some human activity. The very first morning called for an immediate leisurely jog up to the summit of Palmyra Peak...to acclimatize, warm up the legs, take in the views, meet Seth Morrisson, and so on. As a skier, when its bluebird, no wind, warm, all terrain open, and winter snow in Telluride, you have to take full advantage.
With a 4 year old in Ski School, a 22 month old lapping the magic carpet, and some ridiculously fast groomers with the Mrs, this video encompasses a couple laps on my own. Descents include far skier's right entrance of Roy Boy off Palmyra, Capitol above Black Iron Bowl, Review, Nice Chute, Gold Hill Chute #10, and multiple laps down my favorite zone....Dihedral Face.
Combine the above with some impeccable food, luscious drinks, quality ski time with the entire family, and you have the makings of the perfect San Juan ski trip.
