One of the things I truly love about living out here is how excited people get when they read this: WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 PM MST FRIDAY ... Total snow accumulations of 8 to 18 inches with locally higher amounts above 9000 feet ... Bring it on snow gods!
12" in the last 24 hours! We are so excited for the ski resort to open this Thursday! I never thought I would be the person that gets excited about snow storms and opening days at a ski resort... but I am! Its going to be a great season!

So happy to finally be home! 10 feet of snow since the beginning of the season, and it just keeps dumping out! The skiing has been incredible, but if your legs need a breather, come by the store at 394 W Colorado Ave (main st), Telluride. In case you haven't heard, Telluride hasn't always been the skier's paradise that we now know and love. Originally established as a mining town in the late 19th century, Telluride did not officially become a powder destination until 1972 when the ski resort opened its doors to the public.
