• 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.

  • 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.

Local Slang

Local Slang

A few days ago on the bus, I overheard a conversation between two local friends. Although the majority of it was casual, the following – not verbatim – caught my ear immediately: Local 1: Why are you going shopping at the Village Market when Clark’s is only three blocks from your place? Local 2: Because […]

Skiing with the Lifties

Out of all of the lifties at all of the ski areas that we’ve visited, the ones at Telluride are by far the nicest. They always have smiles on their faces, consistently ask how things are going and manage to add a neighborly ambiance to anyone skiing or snowboarding. In a nutshell, they actually have […]

Opening Day

Opening day has finally arrived, and the weather couldn’t have been better. Blue bird skies and below freezing temperatures greeted us, as well as a whole slew of locals, while we lapped Village Bypass and lower Misty Maiden. Sure, the snow pack dwarfs that of other Colorado resorts at the moment, but considering that it […]
