• 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 […]

Baked in Telluride

Baked in Telluride Reopens

Perched on a weathered, wooden seat, soaking up sunshine and sinking my teeth into a slice of cheesy, greasy, pepperoni pizza was one of the few rituals I would partake in during my annual trip to Telluride before moving down to the San Juans last November. Like most festival attendees and weekend excursionists, stopping off […]

Park Sesh

Let’s be honest, Telluride does not need a terrain park. While most resorts construct them to attract the skiing and snowboarding youth market, we can all agree that the steep pitches, amazing scenery and epic backcountry have that demographic dialed. Because of this, the resort’s down rails, roller-coaster boxes and step-up jumps don’t even compare […]

Après-Ski! Part Deux

A few weeks ago, we put Telluride’s MSNBC.com ranking to the test to see if it truly deserved its position as one of the top 10 après-ski scenes in the world. We stopped off at five different locales all over the resort and were pleasantly surprised with all of the options and deals to be […]

Hilaree O’Neill: A Local Legend

Hilaree O’Neill is anything but your traditional Telluride local. After spending 5 years ski-mountaineering, racing, modeling and essentially living it up in Chamonix, France, O’Neill moved to town 10 years ago for one primary reason: to be with her now current husband, Brian, who she originally met on a ski expedition to Aconcagua, the largest […]
