Save The Alta Lakes Observatory

Nestled along the Telluride border is a giant cabin owned by the Russell Family only accessible by sled, snowcat, or foot in the winter. It’s an awesome staging ground for overnight shredding and drinking beer. HOWEVER, the Russell’s may have to sell it for personal reasons. Since the asking price is over a couple of mil, chances are it ain’t gonna be no ski bum who can afford it. Think more along the lines of second or third vacation home lived in two weeks out of the year with access to the surrounding terrain cut off. The only solution as of now to keep it in the family is for more people to rent the place out, so get yourself over to altalakes.com and book it out now.


See how pretty it is?


See Eric Ludwig, see?


If you shred the Birthday Chute please do not feel obligated to act like in your in ski school and synchronize shred with your buddy. p.s. this skis right out to the front door of the cabin.


And then go jump off the trestle made famous by Rocket so long ago that anyone under the age of 35 probably doesn’t remember. That’s Steven Waters making method madness.
