For decades, the mere utterance of the word “Telluride” has conjured up visions of jagged peaks, crusty miners, an authentic western main street, and the mystique of some of the best skiing in Southwest Colorado. And the myth holds up: even an average day at Telluride is anything but, well, average:
The totally average Telluride experience continues…
Parking in Colorado has its risks, as this poor damsel in distress recently realized after leaving her car unattended for a day a Durango Mountain Resort lot. The resort is reporting a whopping 22 inches in the last 48 hours. I believe it:
It’s snowing again in the mountains, and resorts across Ski Country are feeling the love from Mother Nature. The most recent storm plastered the Southwest with snow – including a 32-inch, 24 hour haul at Silverton – and left plenty of snow at other resorts throughout the state. It’s not over yet either, as more snow is in the forecast for the upcoming week.
You have got some great moves. Really, you must. Because with the storms that have been pounding us here in Colorado, it’s clear that there must be some seriously stylin’ snowdancing going on…
Greetings, all, and welcome to winter. I know a bunch of resorts have been open for a while already, but it’s finally starting to actually feel like winter too. Not only does it feel like winter, but the snow-gods have made it look like winter too. Want proof? Check out the snow report. That’s at least 11 resorts that are open with fresh snow. Bam. Like I said, welcome to winter.
Heard the good news yet? Crested Butte Mountain Resort and Telluride Ski Resort have teamed up to launch an interchangeable lift ticket, the Telluride – Crested Butte Ultimate 6 Pass; a 6-visit pass that is good for 3 days of skiing and riding at Crested Butte and 3 days at Telluride. Out-of-towners can now use the centrally located Montrose airport for travel arrangements and the opportunity to ski both renowned resorts in one vacation. In addition, the resorts have partnered to also give full season pass holders the opportunity to take advantage of skiing reciprocity privileges.
This entry comes to CSCUSA from our interview with the Spencer Nelson All-Star Athlete of the Year, Keaton McCargo of the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club. We sat down and chatted about her tips and insight now that ski season is here. And just in case you missed it, yesterday’s conversation was with Doug Sakata of Copper Mountain, CSCUSA’s Instructor of the Year.
