An Epic Telluride Summer

Lets not beat around the bush, summer had a lot of work ahead of it. The winter brought us one of the best ski seasons we’ve ever had, and since locals constantly praised the awesomeness of Telluride summers, we had very high expectations, to say the least. But, after four months of festivals, mountain biking, […]

Blues and Brews

The Flaming Lips, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Willie Nelson and a ton of beer; seriously, what more could you want? How about media passes and Dutch behind the camera, once again? Because for all 3 days of the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival last weekend, the Telluride Newb was back in full force. […]

Telluride Mountain Biking: Around Town

The mountain biking on the Telluride Ski Resort, as already seen, is pretty damn sweet. The technical aspects, the quick uphills and the smooth downhills (especially on the Prospect Trail) pretty much top most biking trails around the state. But, sometimes riding the gondola up to cruise on down through Mountain Village just doesn’t do […]

Telluride Backpacking

Out of all of the mountains surrounding Telluride, Wilson Peak has taunted us the most. Part of it probably has to do with our unsuccessful attempt to ski its north face in May, while the fact that it has starred in numerous Coors commercials definitely added fuel to the fire. Either way, there was no […]

Telluride Mountain Biking: The Resort

Mountain biking has definitely replaced skiing as our seasonal fixation here in Telluride. Sure, we’ve attended almost every festival, as well as hiked and camped our faces off over these last few months, but when it comes to biking, its the one thing – like skiing – that we obsess over. Especially once the Telluride […]

Fly Fishing with the Legendary Dave Hill

As a kid growing up in the Front Range, we went fishing only on special occasions, like Father’s Day, and I never really got into it. The fact that I never actually caught a fish and spent the majority of my time unhooking my fly from branches probably had something to do with it. But, […]

Revving it Up, Muddy-Telluride Style

What do you get when you combine six ATVs, three GoPros and a hankering to get dirty after days of torrential downpours? You get an awesome, kick-ass time conquering 4X4 roads and getting muddy. You also get some pretty sweet footage for an ATV episode. Operating snowmobile tours in the winter, Telluride Snowmobile Adventures becomes […]

The Lunar Cup

With all the festivals, warm weather and outdoor excursions to keep you entertained in the summer, its easy to ignore the constant cries from your hall closet or garage. What was once their heyday in winter, your skis have now spent the last few months in the dark, collecting dust, while you mountain bike, fly […]

The Via Ferrata

We heard rumors about it from locals, had friends mention it when discussing upcoming visits, but ever since the stunning image of it appeared on the cover of the newest issue of “Telluride Magazine,” there was really no way that we could spend a summer in Telluride without doing the Via Ferrata. It just had […]

The 4th of July

No matter where you are on Independence Day, you’re going to have a great time. The summer sun, the parades, the barbecues, the parties and the fireworks all add up to make one hell of a day. And Telluride is no exception. Starting out with a Main Street parade that the whole town practically participates […]
