Mother Nature has opened her heart bestowing 53 inches of beautiful snow upon the mountaintops that surround Telluride’s historic box canyon. A week before the opening the ski area is reporting a whopping 31 inch base, with more storms in the forecast beginning Thursday. Drive by the ski area and you will see lift one is ready for opening day with the magic carpet meticulously groomed and ready for students. Adding to the natural snowfall this year is the completion of the snowmaking system upgrades and expansion that was done by Telluride Ski Resort. The new system was installed on Butterfly and Village Bypass and according to TelSki, it is ten times more efficient and is expected to enhance early season conditions with better snow and earlier terrain openings.
