Trip Report for Telluride, Colorado 2019 by Jim Mullenix

Thirty two lucky skiers set out for a skier's paradise in Telluride, Colorado on January 19th. The group enjoyed fantastic conditions with fresh powder and groomed slopes every day. We had a chicken alfredo group dinner in the trip leader's condo on Tuesday night. We celebrated three club member birthdays with a chocolate cake and we celebrated 50 YEARS OF THE CHATTANOOGA SKI CLUB with a carrot cake. On Wednesday evening, approximately 20 members went to a "Second City" play at the Telluride High School. The week ended with a pot luck dinner on Friday evening. Most condos did not have much to contribute so it turned out to be a pizza party.

Our return air flights became a challenge when the weather in Chicago turned to sub zero weather and snow. Our flight out of Colorado was delayed and our flight to Atlanta was lost. We diverted and left Chicago for Nashville. Our great Royal Bus Company was able to also divert to Nashville. We arrived in Chattanooga around 3am. I hope all enjoyed the trip as much as I did.

Your fearless leader,
