https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/search.php?searchid=19504814Never noticed this thread before - but have gone through a ski renaissance lately (nb: I grew up in Whistler and raced into my teens - however, I unfortunately took a long break in my 20s, skiing only sporadically).
In any event, I've booked three trips for next year: Telluride (mid-Feb), J Hole (early March), and CB (mid-March).
I was wondering, for those who have done it:
Feel fine about skiing Corbet's at J Hole (in terms of it being open) - I like my odds in early March. And by then, I feel like I'll have some great conditions for side- and backcountry skiing. However, I was wondering about Telluride, and specifically, the hike up to Palmyra Peak. If anyone is familiar with the mountain, do you know when Palmyra Peak typically opens and, if so, what the snowfall typically looks like by mid-Feb (I can still perhaps push the trip back)? Further, if you have done the hike, how rough is it (in terms of difficulty and exposure)? I'll be going regardless, but like to prepare myself mentally .
Also, very excited about testing out my new sidecountry, one-quiver kit (which I'll add to my Nordic and AT stuff, which I am sick of traveling with):

Here's Telluride. A search will probably yield any other info you could want
