Hope everyone has enjoyed the freshies this week! We sure do love those weather forecasts that call for 3-6" and we end up getting 14"+!!! With the Gold Hill Chutes, Palmyra Peak, Bald Mountain and more now open... the skiing has truly been "Unmatched". Congrats to the Giants for winning the Super Bowl, thanks to National Geographic for naming Telluride one of the 'World's 25 Best Ski Towns', Ullr for hooking up the snow... and we look forward to a fun-packed weekend!
