Revelation Bowl

Jay took the camera with him into Revelation Bowl since I don't ski in this area. The Revelation Lift is brand new this season and is our highest elevation lift, reaching 12,570 feet above sea level. Not only can advanced skiers ski the bowl, the new lift also provides easier access to the Gold Hill Chutes and backcountry skiing into Bear Creek.
The Bear Creek observation deck.
You can see Telluride way down there, kind of right of center in this one.
This last photo was taken right off of the top of the Revelation lift (15) and looking down at the Gold Hill Express (lift 14). The brownish area on the left is where the wind has blown away the snow, probably blown right into Revelation Bowl.

Jay takes AMAZING photos! Of course, with those views I can't imagine anyone taking really bad pictures! lol!

Makes me feel a little dizzy in a good way. You are so lucky to be living in such an extremely beautiful environment.

I can't wait to read and find out how you ended up in Telluride. Can you ever imagining leaving?
