Powder days are so much better when you don't live in Crested Butte...

Telluride was fantastic today, and it's snowing pretty hard right now so tomorrow should be good as well.

Here's some snow! Even without the highest snow totals in the State, but Berthoud still held some good turns!

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

Never heard of it. Sounds like a nice place though. Hope you caught that ride you were looking for.

Sure did, last minute and randomly. And for once, Telluride got nearly as much as Wolf Creek. Palmyra Peak even opened for a minute yesterday, but I wasn't one of the lucky few to climb it.
