by Colorado Snow Sensei on Aug.28, 2013, under Colorado Events, Dining and Nightlife, Resorts

TFF-Banner_Ingrid_LundahlNestled at the foot of a box canyon and surrounded on three sides by 14,000 foot peaks in the San Juan mountain range, the small town of Telluride, Colorado is worth a visit any time of the year. Every September, this jewel of Colorado Ski Country transforms from a picturesque former mining town into an international destination for the performing arts. The town’s population of 2,500 triples as aficionados of film and blues music flood Telluride to listen to award-winning music acts and take an exclusive first look at films that will contend for Academy awards later in the year.

There’s still another month’s worth of summer fun to be had at Colorado’s mountain resorts before the colors begin to change, the night air becomes crisp, and the minds of  alpine enthusiasts begin to wander towards tune-ups, new gear, pass purchases, and early snowstorms. Many resorts are offering great summer activities and lodging specials through the end of September.

The Labor Day weekend is the last holiday weekend as resorts begin their preparations for the winter. Whether washing down an afternoon’s worth of competition chili with renowned microbrewed beer, attending music festivals featuring award-winning musicians, taking a ride in a vintage aircraft, or enjoying the many summer sporting and recreational opportunities at Colorado’s resorts, the Labor Day weekend festivities offer something for everyone. Below are some of the events and activities taking place during the long holiday weekend around Colorado Ski Country. (continue reading…)

The Mug Club at A-Basin’s 6th Alley Bar

by Guest on Nov.26, 2012, under Dining and Nightlife, Insider Secrets

If you love après-ski just as much as the skiing itself, you’re probably familiar with the dilemma I faced on A-Basin’s Opening Day this year—the lift line or the mug line. If you’re not in the mug line when it starts forming at 7am, you’re out of luck because they sell out of these Bad Larrys by mid-day on Opening Day each year.

This year, I chose mug line over lift line. Okay, okay, so actually my boyfriend diligently waited in the mug line, outside of the 6th Alley Bar, while I did my “official” duties of watching first chair. As luck would have it, I strolled back into the A-frame just in time to notice he was only a few people away from the register. Not so lucky for everyone else, I hopped into line with him while nonchalantly chatting up his line neighbors hoping they didn’t call me out for being a skipper. Yes, it was much like being in elementary school. They didn’t seem to mind and I was on my way to becoming a first time Mug Club member.

SolVista: Small is a BIG Deal

by Mountain Correspondent on Feb.10, 2012, under Colorado Skiing, Dining and Nightlife, General, Resorts

As far as Colorado ski resorts go, SolVista Basin at Granby Ranch doesn’t give up its biggest virtues upon first glance. Initially, you might not see what makes SolVista such a big deal, because the things that make SolVista a big deal are… small.

At SolVista, small is a very big deal

Indeed, some of the ski area’s biggest fans are less than three feet tall. This is a kids’ Mecca, and truly offers something different for families. So I’m letting my new family at SolVista adopt me for the weekend.
