It's that time of the year again. Time for Thanksgiving, turkey, tryptophan and turns in Telluride! We're excited to reflect on a wonderful summer with friends and family, kick off the 40th season at the Telluride Ski Resort, eat way too much and prepare ourselves for another wonderful winter here in Telluride. We've done our wall sits, off-season cleanses and ridiculous snow rituals... now it's time to take it to the slopes for the next 130+ days. We hope you join us for some turns this winter and have a Happy Thanksgiving! Here's your Top 5 Best Things to do in town this week:
Tuesday, November 20th – Telluride Gallery Locals Show – The Telluride Gallery will kick off
its winter season with a show featuring radical altered album covers. Come
celebrate the art behind the music with some of the best vinyl album covers
from your favorite bands. Wear your favorite rock band t-shirt and come check
out the exhibition from 5-8pm. For more info, visit their website.
Wednesday, November 21st – Donation Day – Strap on your skis and hop on the slopes one day
early… and give back to a good cause! Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club’s
season-opening tradition, Donation Day, will kick off the 2012/2013 winter ski
season this Wednesday at 9am. Lift tickets are $25 for everyone participating
and 100% of the proceeds go to help fund tuition for a number of Telluride Ski
and Snowboard Club (TSSC) members. “Everyone
who buys a ticket, that money goes directly into the financial assistance fund.
So essentially, everyone who goes skiing will help a child”, said TSSC executive
director Justin Chandler. For more information about TSSC, visit their website.
Thank YOU for giving to a great cause and see you on the slopes!
