Suggested 3 day ski itinerary for march 17


Would anybody be willing to jot down a good action plan for my 3 out of 4 ski days next week? I like groomed runs and I actually like them steep. I'm not sure if that puts me at a double blue or single diamond. Either is fine I guess, but really don't want to see any double diamonds.

Day 1 will most likely start around 10am. I rent my equipment so it is probably good to warm up on some cruisers and then gradually challenge myself without overdoing the first day!

Days 2-3 will also start around 10am, and prob finish around 4.

I suppose ice will be a factor and perhaps a little slush? So it would be great to hear from a Telluride local how to schedule my 3 days of skiing so as to maximize my fun!!! I hate to say this, but I'm traveling from Texas, (but I grew up in Denver and graduated from CU!) so altitude will surely be a factor in spite of the fact I'm in strong cardio shape.

I like to hang out at lunch for 45 minutes before part 2 of the day

We r staying in town and I think the gondola is fairly close?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much.

I was hoping someone else would chime in on this. I am not out there at the moment, so can't help much with the conditions. There is about a 80 inch base right now and any ice will depend on how warm temps get and when/if there is fresh powder.

Where are you staying? I can tell you just how close to gondola it is.

This is from the following link


Start the day by getting from the Town or Village up to the Plunge Lift 9 for some great early morning corduroy. Either Bushwacker or Upper Plunge are usually groomed every other night. These two and See Forever to Lookout provide some of the best long, high angle groomers you’ll find anywhere. The town side runs off the Coonskin Lift 7 can tend to be a bit boney, but on any given day Milk Run and Coonskin (above) can also be quality groomers.
