There's lots of safe touring around Molas Pass, much more of a skinny x-c place then a tour for turns place. Heading south from Silverton, pull over at the "Little Molas Lake" road on the right, just short of the top of the pass. You can figure it out from there. Also some touring at Andrews Lake on the left side, maybe 1/4 mile further. Or, for a great tour, go all the way down to the bottom of Coal Bank Pass, almost to Purgatory, turn left and park across from the Cascade Creek Road, I think it's called Lime Creek Road (it's been a while). Tour up that road maybe 3 miles to the Spud Lake trail, and go to SPud Lake a mile further, it is a gorgeous x-c ski.
I have done these on x-c skis, I can't recall whether there are any turns though.
