This Colorado Ski Run Is Being Called The Sketchiest In The Country… And You Are Going To Want To Try It

Can I let you in on a shocking and somewhat embarrassing fact about myself? I was born and raised in Colorado, but have only been skiing once… shame, I know. While I am definitely in the minority in terms of barely skiing (even my Kansas native husband has been on the slopes more than I have!), I know that several of you, our readers, are somewhat pro at it, which is why you will want to check out the Colorado ski run that is being called one of the sketchiest in the country.

Named one of the 7 “gnarliest and sketchiest rides” in Colorado by the Denver Post is the Senior’s Run; “Telluride’s most famous double-black is Kant-Mak-M to Spiral Stairs to the Plunge, a 2,125-foot bragging-rights mogul run with steeps approaching 45 degrees.” Situated atop Palmyra Peak, Senior’s Run is truly a slope for the experts, chock full of twists, turns, and straight-up (err, down?) drops. To get a better glimpse at Senior’s Run, check out this gnarly GoPro footage from YouTube user TheNoFallZone:
