The wait is over! A dream came true for many anxious skiers this week when Telluride received probably it's biggest dump of snow in the past 2 years. The ski area was hammered with 20" of fresh snow on Saturday night, and a few more inches have fallen steadily over Monday & Tuesday. The flutters are set to continue for the rest of today.
The snowfall could not be better news for Telluride, as Colorado has been experiencing a relatively dry & mild winter so far. This turn around has given locals and visitors a noticeable spring in their step!! Lots of happy smiley faces.
Telluride is blanketed with almost 2' of snow!
Telluride is famous for having no lift lines. But on Sunday morning, as ski patrol struggled to open the mountain under the groan of snow, hundreds of skiers and snowboarders had lined up at the base of Chair 8 and the gondola.The line for Chair 8 was backed right up Kid's Hill. I have never seen anything like it in 4 years!
Telluride is known for 'no lift lines', but this powder day attracted hundreds of eager skiers on Sunday morning!
Of all the major Colorado ski resorts, I think Telluride has to be faring better than most this winter. Despite low snow totals, Telluride Ski Resort is skiing as good as it gets!!
