Yikes, Telluride opens sick hike-to terrain

On the heels of Telluride’s opening of Black Iron Bowl to pubic access, the resort has gained approval for skiing and riding Palmyra Peak this winter. Located east of Black Iron Bowl and Prospect Bowl, this unbelievable hike-to terrain includes well over 200 acres and almost 2,000 vertical feet on the north face of 13,320 foot Palmyra Peak.
Telluride employees say it's some of the most spectacular in-bounds terrain in the country.

This opening has been made possible due to the addition of a new avalauncher this fall.

Yikes for sure. That looks hairy, bet they will be lobbing shells up there often.

Wow, that is an impressive terrain opening. Palmyra peak is gnarly.

Its great to see resorts willing to pay for avalanche control to open expert terrain, even though it probably doesn't increase revenue all that much.
