Full review

The new terrain Telluride is simply awsome! If you are a flat lander the altitude is tough but so is T-ride! The first day we were there we hit the new Revolation Bowl off the bat ( gets skiied out fast because it isn't that big). Then they opened up Gold Hill chutes 6-9, and the new Stairway to the Heavens! Ski Patrol opened the stairway and we were the first up. It was not a mad dash because coming from 600' and hiking at 13,000' the first day was agonizing and I'm in shape! If you do this hike (highly recommend) let your body get used to the elev. not on the first day. Every year this place gets better.
