Telluride, March 2018

Cody and I made a quick trip up to Telluride this weekend for two days of skiing. Seeing her reaction as we came up over the ridge, looking out into Bear Creek Canyon on her first ride up the Gold Hill chair was priceless.

Signs of the old west. Cortez.


Chair 9. We woke up to rain Saturday morning so we had a lazy breakfast in town and then realized the snow line was only about 800 vertical above town. We quickly booted up and scored an afternoon with 6 inches of fresh cream.


Cody’s favorite pick for the day was the Satisfaction glade run.


On day two I took Cody across the Goat Path and into the Football field to nab some freshies.


This place is so beautiful it’s ridiculous.


Tap the Rockies.


We had fun hanging around town too.




Awesome Rock.

Nice, man. I love Telluride, and you're exactly right: it's freaking beautiful.

I'll have to win the mega millions tomorrow to have any chance at living there, though. Prices are at Aspen levels.

Sweet report!

As a dad there is nothing more fun than skiing this kind of stuff with your daughter...

I spent a winter there and personally, I think it’s a better place to visit than live in. It’s a little too small for me and the $ too big. Living there feels weird to me and I get canyon fever being there for any extended amount of time.

Nice!

After playing in the woods at Platty a couple weeks ago I think I may have hooked my older, less adventurous, son on powder skiing.  He experienced that unique feeling that, not being able to be described, you have to feel.  My younger son keeps showing me rad skiing videos of far off places.  So I’ve got them thinking right, finally!!  Cool that you have Cody playing in the off the beaten track places with you.  I’m thinking maybe my older son comes on the next adventure....
