Bluebird in the Morning, Dumping in the Afternoon – Telluride Pow Day – Feb. 6th, 2012

February 7th, 2012 by

Today was an amazing, surprise powder day in Telluride with periods of blue skies in the morning and dumping snow in the afternoon.

After 1-5″ of new snow was forecast from this storm, more than a foot of fresh snow ended up falling on the mountain turning into one of the best days of the season! This afternoon was DEEP!

With Telluride’s base depth approaching 60 inches and recent storms coming in with no wind, the resort is skiing awesome right now with great coverage on the Gold Hill ridge and chutes and up the Palmyra ridgeline. Huge props to Patrol who have done an amazing job recently getting more and more terrain open and skiing safe.

We are currently in a great weather cycle and hopefully these storms keep rolling through the area. The San Juans are going off right now…

Snowmobiling in Telluride with Dave’s Mountain Tours – 1/30/12

February 1st, 2012 by

This week a group of us went snowmobiling outside Telluride with our buddy Steve Brown from Dave’s Mountain Tours. We headed up to Woods Lake and the Beaver Park area near Wilson Mesa on a beautiful afternoon and had a blast!

With all our recent snow, the trails and sledding zones in the area are in awesome shape with lots of deep pow out there. Our crew learned first hand just how deep it was, getting the sleds stuck multiple times and having to dig them out. We had a super fun day out there with plenty of laughs, adrenaline, and good times all around…

Telluride is an amazing place to get out on snowmobiles and see just how beautiful this area is. Thanks again to Steve and the guys at Dave’s Mountain Tours for an awesome afternoon sledding!

Telluride Storm Drops Over 2 Feet of Pow in 2 Days…January 22-23, 2012.

January 24th, 2012 by

The last few days skiing in Telluride were some of the best in years! Over 2 Feet of new snow fell on the mountain with pockets of blown snow and drifts in places twice as deep. The powder panic was at an all time high on Sunday morning with massive lines early and no significant lifts turning until around 10am. When the ropes finally dropped, it was on and people were getting after it in a big way!

Casey Riva was hucking off everything and anything including stomping the s#*t out of Awesome Rock…very awesome performance in deed! Nice work out there Casey.

With the HIGH avy danger and amount of new snow, Lifts 12, 14, and 15 didn’t open until Monday morning allowing for us to do it all again yesterday. And to top it off…it’s still dumping in town as I write this. Bring it on!

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!

Telluride World Cup Snowboardcross POV from Local Shreder Harry Kearney

December 28th, 2011 by

Edit and Words by Harry Kearney:

Telluride once again held the only United States stop for the Wold Cup earlier in December, but for the first time with a local Telluride shreder. After a week of tryouts held before the race, Hagen Kearney came out on top with a coaches discretion race start after proving himself by consistently slaying the training, even topping the U.S. team riders on occasion. Little brother Harry Kearney got in to run the course as well, and threw together this little edit for Unofficial Telluride.
