How does Telluride preserves the snow in south facing slopes?

watching some videos, sometimes it seems that the lower parts of the south facing side of the valley (the opposite side of the ski area?) don't keep snow all the way to the valley floor.

 

I always heard Telluride is a late season destination, due to great March / April snowfall, and lots of north facing slopes though.

Was that a cowboy lighting up a blunt at 0:26 into the video?

I'm assuming you are talking about the south facing aspects you see above the town of Telluride?  Even mid-winter, those hills seem to melt off as they get sun all day long and are lower elevation than the resort.  The higher elevation southern aspects up in the resort area hold snow well pretty much all year though they were a little bony when I was there a few weeks ago due to wind scouring. Telluride always amazes me due to the varying conditions you can find all over the mountain especially in March.

Yes, that is what I meant.

I've seen many pictures and videos where these south facing aspects seem to be snow free.

But the views are totally amazing, It's definitely on my bucket list... maybe a southern Colorado road trip including Aspen, Crested Butte and Telluride! :drool

I far, far prefer the Venture Out promo from a few years back (2009/10 I think).  In fact that's one of my fave promo clips of all time.
