Thanksgiving In Telluride: Lots Of Carving Going On For Opening Day
by Eileen Burns
(editor's note: I took one run from the top of Lift 6 down See Forever to the Beach. I happened to be riding the lifts and skiing with recent Telluride immigrant, Gaile Oslapas, who is a supervisor in the Children's Ski School. We stopped a few times on the way down to take in points of interest. Welcome to Telluride, Gaile)
Before cutting into this year's juicy Thanksgiving turkey, local Telluride skiers and guests took to the slopes for some early season carving as Telluride Ski Resort celebrated opening day.
Ski school was in full swing with smiling instructors and nervous clients, mostly the little ones. All the village core restaurants were open and welcoming guests with local brews, chili, burgers and lots of outside seating to enjoy the sunny, warm day.
A bit of a glitch shut lift four down a bit early, but overall, this was an opening day to remember. Ski ya later!
