Milky substance in oil...

Well, spring is around the corner, and $#!+ creek is flowing again...

When pulling off my michelin man IC hose, I found it full of oil. That alone
is disconcerting. Worse, the oil accumulated in the first couple 'ribs' had a
milky white color.  

I recently switched to 10-w30 from 20-w50 for a trip up into the mountains
(48" of fresh powder whoo-hooo!). All dino oil, never synth (not starting the
thread here!). 

Checked the dipstick. Oil has 1k miles on it. Looks new, no milky color there.

So what is the deal. Could high boost at higher altitudes have lead to
overspooling the turbo and thereby caused this? Coolant leak? Where to start
looking? IC leaking? Turbo coolant leak? Boost has not changed, though. I fear
I may be having another upgrade opportunity? The car was good for 150+ uphill
(straight desert road, no signs of life for many miles in any direction;
flames off please). Possibly a related injury?

Any insight much appreciated!
