Road Trip

Time for some R&R over here. We're going to be hitting the road this week and next for a trip to Arizona and Colorado. I'm looking forward to skiing Telluride and checking out the new terrain that's open off Palmayra Peak.

Not sure how much of Palmayra is actually open, but I'm been wishing I could ski that summit ever since I first skied Telluride some 20+ years ago. Even getting to cruise the drainage below the peak would be fantastic—I expect the views are magnificent, even by Tell standards. I'll check in with more info about the terrain when I know more: what's open, what it looks like.

Until then, be mindful of unsettled weather in the CA backcountry, and have a safe week!
