Oh the Telluride Horror!

Horror Fest

Let’s face it, off season in Telluride is pretty boring. Although not as dreary as the spring off season (though the April blizzards definitely kept us entertained), town has definitely slowed to a stand still. And with the gondola shutting down for a month on Monday, things are going to get even quieter than they […]

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, […]

The Most Colorful Transition

Fall Colors 2

Well, it’s safe to say that summer is officially over. The crowds have left, the temperatures have dropped and off season has begun. But unlike last off season, where April and May brought a ton of snow and a ton of mud, this one brings with it an unbelievable array of colors. Yes, Telluride autumns […]

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. […]

Imogene Pass Run

Imogene Pass Run 3

Running has never been our forte, due to the simple fact that skiing and mountain biking let you go faster. Therefore, running a race has never been that high on our “to do” lists. So, when registration opened for the 38th annual Imogene Pass Run a few months ago, only one thought crossed our minds: […]

History Your Face Off!

History Museum

Okay, so history cannot be used as a verb (as in this post’s title). But, in all honesty, that is what you do when you visit the Telluride Historical Museum. Unlike most small town museums, where it’s impossible not to be exposed to vast amounts of dust and asbestos while being somewhat accosted by the […]

Hollywood Hits Telluride!

Film Festival

The rumor train has been running for quite some time now, with locals and visitors alike commenting on which celebrities, directors and Hollywood big shots would be heading to Telluride over labor day weekend. And even though sightings have been confirmed for George Clooney, Glenn Close, Jennifer Garner and Tilda Swinton, the 38th annual Telluride […]

Boomers, Dude!

Mushroom Festival 1

A summer festival takes place every weekend in Telluride, literally. After Mountainfilm essentially kicks off the high season, a new, colorful banner hangs above Main Street every seven days. And while it becomes pretty easy to ignore the smaller ones, such as Yoga Festival, the Ideas Festival and the Chamber Music Festival, last weekend’s 31st […]

Telluride’s Squidshow Theater

Squidshow Theater

Many claim that Telluride suffers from a lack of culture. Since hundreds of miles separate the town from cosmopolitan cities and Broadway plays, people occasionally feel that they are missing out. Luckily, that’s where the Squidshow Theater comes in to play, literally. Headed up by Sasha Cuccinello, the Squidshow Theater is anything but your small […]

Kick it into Gear with Jazz Fest

Jazz Fest

For the last few weeks, Telluride has been pretty mellow. After the mad rush of the July 4th weekend (or week, since the holiday fell on a Monday), there’s been a low-key feeling throughout town. Sure, Yoga Fest came and went, along with a few events here and there, but the crowds never even compared […]
