Skiers Log for Telluride, 2009

This trip to Telluride was fantastic particularly due to our fantastic host and hostess, Dave & Judy. Plenty of info, great accommodations, and most of all Judy’s hospitality and treats! Marty Thee

I’ve forgiven my husband for taking me on a “warm up” on a steep mogul double blue cause he ended up in the same situation on a “rocky” steep double black. We had great condo mates, Dennis and Ole. Had a great communal breakfast with Gary and Susan Jones, Craig, Bob & Peggy. They came to eat up Gary’s breakfast burritos fantastic with the Cholula sauce and Marty and my leftovers. On the last day, three days into my new boots, 4:01 off, I actually kept up with the freeway skiers … you know who you are. Sign us up for next year Dave!!! Thanks so much. Lilly & Marty

A confident skier is a good skier. Unfortunately, I am still picking up the pieces of my shattered confidence after having a GREAT grandmother ski circles around me. Thanks Bette! Bob

This has been a fantastic and fun time for us as a family, and we could not have chosen a better time to come. The weather was great, the lines were short and the snow was fresh! We loved the street festival and would welcome a trip here at this time of year. We really loved the people on this trip, as well as the Downtown Doggies. The Witter’s

As always, a fantastic trip with my ski family. A wonderful ending to a great ski season. We laugh at getting lost on the trails and laugh at each other for whatever! How about a couple of great lady skiers falling in the ladies room. Not telling who, sure glad they had on their helmets. Dolores Hopeman

I learned a valuable lesson. Stay on the same side of the trees that your ski partner is on. Lilly & I were out on the first day in Prospect bowl. We came around the tree and stopped at the same place. Then we played “Twister” and landed on the ground. We were so tangled up – someone came by to help us. Janie Hlinicky

A great trip captain, great skiing, great friends and great shopping. What more could you ask for. Can’t wait for next season. Linda Wells

The high point of my trip was discovering that Randy Montgomery and I were in the same classroom from kindergarten to the fourth grade at Columbus grade school. We also played baseball on the same team for the Columbus Zebra’s. I was the pitcher and he was the catcher. As for the ski trip, there is no better mountain & town than Telluride, CO.

I've not tried rocker skis yet, altughoh I do have a radical pair of carbon fibre carving skis which tend to exhibit the same sorts of properties on hard pack I think this is because they are so waisted compared to the head and tail. I'd be tempted by these new skis I used to use snowblades quite a lot and I imagine these would give the same turning circle only reason I moved away from blades is that I dislocated my knee on them (no release, they're a clamp fitting to a ski boot).
