views and scenery are heavenly
not enough natural snow
The views from See Forever are great, can see the La Salle Mountains near Moab and you're surrounded by tall peaks on 3 sides. When it snows it's gorgeous. Somehow the terrain just doesn't meet my favorite requirements. The Spiral Stairs and Plunge are so steep I work on them, especially cause there's usually not enough snow.
There just isn't enough blacks on this mountain. Tons of blues, though. I'm more a tree skier than groomed runs.
The town is great. I love it summer (mountain biking and bluegrass) and winter. Restaurants are excellent and very diversified in tastes and price.
Flying into Telluride's airport can be scary.
