Also, I'd guess telluride is a little insulated from the COVID effect because of how isolated it is. We talked about it a year or two ago when we were thinking about destinations, but I don't think we could make it work with the limited air travel options and such a small population (and limited medical facilities as the next few years will likely include a kid).

The WFH-exodus crowd are flocking to places like Bozeman because they can save money and be close to socially distanced outdoor recreation but can still shop at Costco and Home Depot and know that there will be daily flight options back to their office when this is over.

Hmm--I just got the college ski club pricing on an Ikon pass which is a little better than the normal college discount...

I think I might just do it and hope things work out?
Can roll it into the next year if not...and even if I end up in Montana, I'd probably be able to make some use out of it--get down to check out Big Sky (6-hour drive), visit people at other resorts, etc.
Bummer that Fernie is on Epic though--that's under 2 hours from Whitefish and I am sure is great for some powder-day trips.

I let my season pass renew. Covid and a dry winter predicted it can only surpass my expectations.

The REI by me had a bunch of Hestra gloves in their garage sale area with "sun damage". Next to the new ones, the leather was a bit yellowed.

Picked up a pair of Army Leather Heli 3-finger gloves.

Discount was big enough to take a gamble that the sun damage wasn't anything more than superficial fading (the fabric portions felt OK to me). I was a little in between sizes--length on the 10 felt better but they had a little extra room inside while the 9 felt best in width. Went with the 10 since I absolutely hate too-short gloves.

The resort that is soon-to-be-formerly-known-as Squaw Valley just announced an 11/25 opening date.
