Thanks to everyone who helped me to choose a Colorado destination for my trip next week. Just the little guy (7 year-old) and myself, we're heading to Telluride from 30 Jan - 6 Feb. Can't wait! I'm hoping that we can both get some lessons in while we're there. Can anyone recommend instructors at Telluride, for either myself or my son? We are both intermediate-level skiers, and have almost exclusively skied in Vermont. I've read the name Denis Huis on the site, is he still the man to see?
As an additional thought, to try to save a bit of money I'm going to take my Rossi Pursuits. These are slightly rockered at the tip and tail, and 74mm underfoot. Great on east coast icy hills, but am I going to wish for fat skis at Telluride? I could rent something like a Bonafide or a Soul 7, but hoped to try out the Pursuits to see how they did.
