    Telluride is known for its funky town, box canyon vistas, Chair 9 bumps, steep piste, and a superb Ski School for the youngsters. But over the years, they've added some gnarly hike-to terrain into the mix. Of course, hiking to Palmyra Peak is the pinnacle of this in-bounds adventure but there's also shorter hikes, to the left and right of the Peak, that a sea-level mortal can perform multiple times in a day. Dihedral Face is one of my favorite zones that provides some classic San Juan extreme skiing. After skiing Dihedral you can tap into the hidden gems of Black Iron Bowl. Gold Hill Chutes are the second major in-bounds hikes that send you over to the opposite side of Palmyra. From open bowls to narrow couloirs, you can definitely find a chute that matches your current mood. From Gold Hill 7-10, you can traverse either to the Fans area on the right or all the way to the left in to the Nice Chute zone. When all of that is over, one can always run over to Bon Vivant for some French Onion soup or to Tomboy Tavern for a happy hour PBR....or like this video, run down and ski with your 2 year old until the lifts close. :-) Full report here: http://www.slaythegnar.com/2014/03/tasting-the-topography-telluride-021514/ Enjoy!

    • Chuting for Capricious Couloirs @Telluride - 03/19/13

      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.

      • Truckin' for Thrills @Telluride - 03/24/12

        With a dismal February in Tahoe, we decided to take another trip to Telluride. As luck would have it, it snowed right before our arrival with bluebird skies and warm temps for the entire stay. Palmyra Peak, Dihedral Chutes, Gold Hill, and Black Iron Bowl were all skiing well for the duration of the trip. Definitely one of the best trips to a mining town in recent memory. Stoked! http://www.slaythegnar.com/2012/03/truckin-for-thrills-telluride-032412/

          Insley family home movies from the 60's, originally shot in super-8. The youngest boy on the screen (and the first person you see) is me as a toddler, around 1964 or 1965. The others are my older brothers Mark, Scott & Bill, and my parents Bill & Geneva
