I adore slope side fashions. The rainbow colors pop against the bright white snow and people look dashing in their gear. A little peek a boo fur is fun too! The devil horns on this little guy add some drama too. I bet he rips it down the slopes ~ grinning all the way. I need a helmet cover like that.

We have had a bunch of snow since we arrived. Lots of glorious Colorado, Rocky Mountain powder.

How could you not be blissfully happy with these majestic views? What you see here is the See Forever ski run. A visual delight with views that reach out to the La Sal mountains in Utah!

These ladies were in town for Women’s Ski Week. I could not get over their fabulous outfits and pom pom headbands. They were a blast to watch on the slopes too!

The kids ski like little dynamos here. Seems like the common age to start this spectacular sport is 3 years old. Thankfully my kids have been showered with attention by the awesome folks at the Telluride Ski School since they were three. My kids never want the day to end. No matter what you age or ski ability there is a perfect group for you. Everyone fits in here.

In the summer my kids hang out at Tel Ski’s Eco Adventure program. Through the years we have become very close to the folks who instruct and take such great care of our kids.

Here is Eric. He was my daughter’s first ski instructor. *Hi Eric!*

My little guy is now 5. He insists on a pensive gondola ride each morning to reflect on the day ahead…

After that he gets all geared up and ready to swoosh down the mountain.

If you have been here then you know this terrain is very varied and you can get exactly what you need out of it.

The graphics on skis and snowboards always fascinate me. They are bold, bright and also pop against the glorious white snow.

From the wildest double black diamond EX runs to gentle cruisers with the most breathtaking scenery. There is lots of fun no matter what your ability.

If skiing is not your thing then you can also hop into Eco Adventures where you can go on snow shoe tours, cruise the mountain on ski bikes, snow mobiling, nordic skiing, horseback ridingdog sledding and lots more. Come to think of it I need to meet up with a few of those husky dogs. The photo op would be spectacular!

The thing here is enjoying the outdoors even if just for a few minutes.

Let’s take another peek…
