Telluride Ski Area Pizza Recommendation From A Local

Do not stop for a slice of pizza at the Crazy Elk in the Telluride Mountain Village, it is grossly overpriced in my opinion. A slice of cheese will set you back $4.50 and a veggie or meat slice will be a cool six bucks! I can't remember the language used on the menu, but they called the slices "crazy big". I haven't been to NYC in a number of years, but not long enough to forget what an "average sized NYC slice" is proportioned & the Crazy Elk pizza slice is probably at least 20% less in size. It's actually not bad pizza, but it was infuriating to see that they'd raised the price to $6 for a slice. I had a strange feeling that I should ask how much it costs…

Milk Run at Telluride Ski Area

Yesterday was my 41st birthday and also was day 27 snowboarding at Telluride for the ski season. I believe it was my fifth day in a row, a record for a very slow paced year which has been plagued with health issues. Nonetheless, I consider myself lucky and happy to get up there when I have had the chance. I took a close-up of the fence on skier's right on Milk Run. While I respect ski racers and can certainly appreciate their skill and dedication, it is definitely not my bag.

Revelation Bowl at Telluride Ski Area

  The shot above was taken from about 2/3 way down the Revelation Bowl lift area at Telluride yesterday. It was my ninth day out this season and 2nd after the new year. Of the nine days I've been out, most have been about 1-2 hrs with about 4-6 runs per day. Normally by now, I'd have about 30+ days on the mountain this season; however, with my health being the way it is, I've gotten off to a very slow start. Nonetheless, I consider myself very luck to simply suit up and make some turns! "Revvy" as I heard someone refer to the revelation lift affectionately (which I will NEVER hold with), was actually in fairly decent shape. You can see there's a natural drainage (actually two of them) which starts in…
