BIT Update

I have had so many people coming to my blog searching for updates on Baked In Telluride that I created a label for it. The last I heard things are moving along in time for opening by the Bluegrass Festival in June.

Is That New?

Have you ever seen something and couldn't remember if it was there just a few days before? I think this big sign is new at the bottom of lift 4 that has the ski area trail map on it and "Welcome to Telluride," but then I thought maybe it had been there all winter.

This is a snowboard instructor with a student on the Galloping Goose run. Behind them is Prospect Woods, one of the new gladed runs created for the resort this year.

Ophir Loop

If you have visited my blog very many times you probably realize I don't do any of the hard core ski runs around here, I just stick to the blues. I know that limits me to what photos I can take, but anything steeper just scares me! If you want to learn to ski or snowboard, don't wait until you are in your 30's. This is definitely Telluride Daily Photo through my eyes.

Winter CoolSculpt in Mountain Village

First prize for the CoolSculpt 2011 went to the Telluride Mountain School for their sculpture of "Love>Fear." It featured two beautiful peacocks standing over a serpent. Unfortunately when I was able to take a final photo on Tuesday both of the peacocks heads had fallen off, but you can still see how great it was.

Second place went to "Are You My Mommy?"

Third place "Architectural Space."

Fourth place "Lego DIsaster."

Winter at Town Park

The first day of summer in the park is always busier and warmer at the Bluegrass Festival!

The Telluride Nordic Association grooms all of the trails for cross-country skiing on the Valley Floor, Trout Lake and Priest Lake. For a very reasonable price you can rent all of the equipment at the office in Town Park.

Warming Up At Gorrono's

The past couple of days were very cold for skiing with wind chills below zero at times, but it didn't make us stay home. Gorrono Ranch is a good place to stop on the mountain for lunch and to warm up.

Tough Kids

Imagine being an infant in a bike seat like this in the winter! This bike was parked in front of the hockey rink, so maybe the baby was inside playing hockey anyway, so the cold bike seat was nothing.

Inside Floradora

Most of the holiday tourists have cleared out and we enjoyed a quiet lunch with great hamburgers at Floradora on Tuesday.

The window at Between the Covers was completely frosted over in our below zero temperatures over the Christmas Holidays.

Theme Day: Photo of the year 2010

It's the first Theme Day of 2011! My favorite photo of 2010 was of the Lewis Mine, which required a fun 8-mile hike that my family and I took in July. Lewis Mine is above Bridal Veil Falls in the Bridal Veil basin. The Lewis Mill was built in 1907 and is said to be one of the most intact examples of historic mining sites in the state. Since it is so remote and only accessible by foot (4 miles from the trailhead), most everything has been left alone up there. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2001, the mill was restored by a State Historical Fund grant and the materials used were flown to the site by helicopter. The elevation at the mine is 12,448 feet above sea level.

Part of the fun for me in looking back over 2010's photos was bringing up the memories that were made while taking them. Here are a few more of my favorites from the year.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 2011!! Here's to another year of blogging!
