I love Telluride. Really want to get a ranch in Placerville. Maybe one day. I try to go to Telluride for a couple weeks a year.

I have a reservation with Telluride Heliski, and a guide to take me into Bear Creek/Alta, depending on how things go :). I've been re-reading some avalanche books, which always give me a healthy dose of caution.

Grandfather couloir looks absurd. While I may have the ski skills, don't really have the mountaineering skills to tackle that one. I have always been interested in the San Joaquin couloir. Just gorgeous.
Bring it on @Newcomer ! I’ve always looked at ranches around there and make a point of staring wistfully at the RRL ranch if I fly into Montrose.
Where are you staying, in town or on the hill.
Have fun with telluride Heli, photos please!

this was my last trip

Awesome!

I am actually staying in an apartment on Colorado Ave., a few doors down from the Last Dollar Saloon. Last time I stayed in MV, and I'm not sure I would do that again.

I’m with you. I’ve never seen the attraction of MV. Telluride to me is the town and the canyon. It’s what makes it so unique. You want that history.
my standby is the New Sheridan for exactly that Reason.
Im really keen to get out there in summer and do part of the Colorado trail up from Durango to Telluride. Hiking that country would be awesome.

I think these two kind of missed the point of visiting an experts-only low-frills resort during covid...

That resort sounds like my idea of heaven. If you guys want to vortex spend some time Googling the Japanese kids who live in their vans and follow the storms around Japan. There is a whole subculture of backcountry hobo life. Kind of like Kapital x Burton x Apocalypse

Bear creek?! How has it been?
Nope, this was in Ophir. So, apparently no one is entering Bear Creek right now (well, no one with much in the way of brains). Avalanches everywhere. When you look into bear creek or Alta, all you can see, on so many classic lines, are avalanche remnants. The entire apron on the San Joaquin couloir fell off. It’s bonkers.

On resort was OK. Just not much in the way of snowfall this year, a lot of the resort was closed (well, the fun stuff). And the day I arrived, temperatures were nearing 50, which melted some coverage. I did have 2 touring days, which were awesome. That’s kind of my focus going forward, so I’m willing to put in the investment (I hire ski patrol/professional guides).
