2017/03/06 Mountain Collective Tour: Telluride
π 2017-03-06 00:00 in Snow

After Silverton, it was time to go to Telluride. Telluride is about 10mn away as the crow flies, but more like 2H by road since you have to drive all the way around a bunch of peaks. While the snow the day or our travel didn't materialize much, or even the night before we went skiing, the day we did go skiing, it was there. That was along frigid temperatures (-20C wind chill). Even then, anything not north facing was pretty crappy under the fresh snow that wasn't deep enough, but by the end of day, we got enough new snow that things were pretty good. By mid afternoon, the sun came out, and it got warmer:



oops, I got stuck in a valley and had to walk out

it's called the bad idea run because you get stuck without a slope at the bottom, so I went :)

The next day was sunny and we went for the left over fresh snow:


sadly, lift 15 wasn't that good when it opened, not deep enough
