VIDEO: Foot of Fresh in Telluride…Tree Skiing Was Going Off Yesterday – 3/19/12

March 20th, 2012 by

Winter returned to Telluride the last few days with a lingering storm dropping a foot of new snow in the mountains through yesterday. With 50 degree + temps and sun all last week, this storm really hit the reset button on winter bringing our base back up over 65″.

Yesterday was one of the finest pow days of the season here in the San Juans with overnight winds blowing the snow deep in the trees. It continued snowing all day yesterday and into the night picking up an additional 6″ bringing the base to 70″ for the first time this season here at Telluride. The mountain is skiing great again with nice weather in the forecast.

Nice way to start off spring…will this be our last storm of the season?


Storms Keep Rolling Through Telluride – 11″ in 48 Hours…More on the Way!

February 29th, 2012 by

With 11″ of new snow in the past 48 hours, Telluride continues to impress with stellar conditions and excellent skiing. The last few storms have come in with some wind causing the snow to be drifted in areas and the ridge lines scoured. Despite this Telluride has a deep base of over 60″ filling in and covering our rocky terrain nicely.

The trees off Chair 9 were the spot to be yesterday, protected from the wind and skiing deep. The snow was dense and creamy and skiing fast. The upper mountain lifts didn’t open until around 1pm due to high winds but were a nice treat to those who stayed out for the afternoon.

This morning’s highlight was the opening of Revy Bowl which was shreded and tracked out in no time. Fun stuff up there…

Another storm is approaching Colorado now with snow expected from late tonight through Friday here in the San Juans. NOAA is calling for 7-18″ here in Telluride by Friday at this point. Lookin’ good…

Winter Returns to Telluride in a Big Way – Jan.16-17, 2012

January 17th, 2012 by

After weeks of no snow, unseasonably warm temps, and bullet-proof conditions…Telluride finally got dumped on! The last two days have been the best ski days in some time and morale is definitely up in the canyon. The forecast is helping as well with additional snow-fall leading us into the weekend…let’s hope winter sticks around for a while!

Video: March 22nd 3″ Pow Day!

March 23rd, 2011 by

Here is a nice video by Emory Smith from yesterday. The mountain was reporting 3″ new in the morning but was much deeper when the goods were sampled. Areas of blower were 12″ or more and the crowds were minimal. All day, there were stashes to be found all over. This video is evidence to how good 3″ over night can be at Telluride. Awesome day out there and great video Emory, love that pole whackin’…

Nice “little” surprise dump at Telluride – Mar. 7, 2011

It happened.  They called for 1-2″ last night and we got nine inches of cold smoke without any wind.  The old Telluride wives tale was in effect.  This morning was well deserved, the snow quality was excellent and you barely felt bottom, unless it was rocky.  It was neat skiing the rocky sections and the
