Blister in Telluride: Trip Report

We’re currently busy writing reviews from our last Telluride trip, and mounting up more of next year’s skis to head back there on Friday.

Trip #1 was spectacular — fresh pow, steep chalk, good corduroy, a bit of heli skiing (!?!), and bluebird skies for all of it.

And Telluride just got more snow — and is forecasted to get even more this weekend. So come join us! We’ll plan to meet up outside of Wagner Custom Skis in Mountain Village at 1 pm on Saturday, so come say hi and / or come take some laps with us. Or come meet us for apres at 5 pm on Saturday at The Peaks. 

Or if you need further convincing, all of these images were taken on our last Telluride trip, and feature Blister reviewers Sam Shaheen, Luke Koppa, and me.

    How are conditions now in telluride? Snow a little thin? May be able to make a trip out next weekend 3/17.

      As of today, all the groomers here are in mint condition. for techy steeps, Crystal and Genevieve are skiing really well (if you’re into steep, techy, chalk. Which we are.) And skier’s left of the chairlift up Revy Bowl is perfect windbuff. And by 1 or 2 pm, everything around chair 9 has been skiing great. And snow is in the forecast. So I guess it depends on what you’re into, but it’s what I would call fantastic spring skiing.

        Thanks! Good thing I’ve already pulled the trigger for the planes, trains, and automobiles out to Telluride this upcoming weekend.
