Best Spots - Telluride CO
I am heading up to Telluride CO for spring break this year. I have been there before, but didn't get to ski most of the mountain. What runs are best for skiing trees, and what runs are worth hiking to?
Well besides all of my secret stashes that are the best runs in the world... lol, I'd say that really it depends how far you wanna hike and how good the snow is. I think hiking to just before Black Iron Bowl is extremely worth it because it's a short hike and a sick little couloir to drop. Hiking farther than that is worth it if your there for a good amount of days or the snow isn't that great elsewhere on the mountain. If gold hill chute 1 is open... 100% worth it since there is literally no hike, but you do gotta ride 2 lifts. It is the sickest run though when coverage is good! and pretty long. Basically all of chair 6 is good for tress when snow is good, Andy's Gold is a true gold mine all of the time if you can find a good line that doesn't get cliffed out. Some random trees under 14 are good too, but if you go in the wrong area then they get so thick and suck. -- by the way if you wanna hike further Mountain Quail, Dehedrial Chute, and obviously the legendary Palmyra Peak are awesome.
