Telluride, Colorado

I love to ski.  If I could, I would ski every day.  Start off the day by brushing my teeth and making a quick run down the slopes.  Yeah, that would rock!  Unfortunately, I don't think that's gonna, when the opportunity came up to go to Telluride for three days of skiing - I jumped at the chance.

Two of the best skiing partners you could ask for - my Dad and my friend Jay
...enjoying the lift ride.

Before you check out the rest of these pics - I should tell you they were all 'captured' with a video camera.  Every picture you see is actually a freeze frame from the video I the pictures are not as clear as you might expect from a 'real' camera.

The views from Telluride were some of the best I've ever seen.

Jay and I always make the best of the long lift rides.  Wine anyone?

Believe it or not, that's my (almost) 70 year old Dad zipping down a BLACK DIAMOND slope!

One thing I'd like to do (if I can find some time over the holidays) is to post some short movies.  The picture above doesn't really capture the same excitement as when it's viewed in full motion with sound.  So....check back later and I bet I'll have some movies here for ya.

Notice the snow blowing off the mountain ridges.
It was five degrees BELOW zero, windy - but the sun never stopped shining.
