• Telluride’s Gold Hill 10

    Friday, April 6, 2012

    Numerous things separate Telluride from the rest of the ski-area-pack, but one of the most notable – besides backcountry terrain – is it’s hike-to access. Within the Prospect Bowl and Gold Hill region, numerous chutes, large, open bowls and a 13,000 ft peak all await those with the desire (and hiking stamina) to ski some […]

    The True “Local’s Favorite”

    Monday, April 2, 2012

    Oh, the “local’s favorite” – a tried and true label garnered to one specific item at almost every restaurant in town, offering visitors a glimpse into the unique, “elite” status of a Telluride local. Or, in other words, a way for merchants to promote their business and increase sales. And, while all “local’s favorites” and […]

  • A Telluride Powder Day

    Friday, March 9, 2012

    When powder strikes, life takes on a new order. Slow mornings, lounging about before putting on your ski gear – one item at a time – are replaced by a mad rush for first chair. Since nothing beats over-the-head, bottomless pow turns, slapping on your boots, slamming down a Window breakfast burrito and pounding a […]

    Bonus Points for the Telluride Pass

    Tuesday, March 6, 2012

    Few ski resorts compare to Telluride. Sure, the area has come a long way (for better or worse) since its inception in the 1970s. Nevertheless, its tight, local community, historical preservation and stunning, surrounding scenery definitely separate it from the rest of the ski-destination pack. Therefore, you gotta hand it to Telluride for supporting its […]

  • Telluride Après Action

    Thursday, February 23, 2012

    The Telluride après scene is pretty spot on. That’s not merely a personal opinion; it’s a fact. We dedicated two episodes last season – Après-Ski Fest and Après-Ski Fest Part Deux – to truly see if the resort deserved its top-ten après ranking from MSNBC. And, after numerous stops and multiple cocktails, those of us […]

Early Season in Telluride

Minimal, open terrain during the first few weeks at any ski resort should be anything but foreign to the die-hard skier, unless you were lucky enough to live in Jackson Hole last winter (100% open on opening day – those lucky bastards). And if you live in Telluride, it’s hard to expect a lot. From […]

We’re Back!

Well, winter in Telluride has officially returned. Sure, a huge dump in early November allowed for early-season touring, and the few inches that fell here and there added to the fun, but with the ski area starting up last week, businesses reopening and all casual conversations focusing solely on the weather, snow has officially reclaimed […]

Seriously, Who is John Gault?

“Who is John Galt?” Probably the most famous question/motif of Ayn Rand’s epic novel “Atlas Shrugged.” Of course, those who’ve managed to tackle the 1100-page saga eventually discover the answer to that question when Dagny Taggart infiltrates Galt’s Gulch, the utopia for the geniuses of society. And for those who’ve done their extra curricular research, […]

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 […]
