If anyone has any info about hot spots at telluride, I would appreciate anything. If you live there, I'll be willing to buy you a few beers when I'm there for any good local knowledge. Dinner might be arranged (low-budget 'cause I'm broke), If I and a few buddies could tag-along for a run or two. I hate having to spend my whole first day skiing everywhere to find (or not find)the good spots. Message me if you don't want to post it.
The whole town is fun. One of the best low key, local spots is fly me to the moon saloon. They always have some sort of hippy or reggae band playing there. There is only one main road, so just walk along it and you will find everything.
Sorry, I assumed you meant night life as you said you were buying the drinks.
As for the terrain, the whole mountain is decent. Last time I was there, the park was right above the mountain village. If you want more mountain or steeps, you will need to take the lift from town up to the top, and the better terrain is up there
yeah, once to get to the top, there is a little hill with a lodge/small restraunt thing on the left. Stay on the cat track and go straight, that will take you into the back area and the bowls. There is also a new area they only opened three years ago or so. You can hike a little back there. I remember them avalanche blasting last time I was out there.
Also, from the top, if you look directly west, you are looking into Utah. It is an absolutely beautiful view.
