We have we been having a total blast here the past two weeks. I mean really, the snow has been glorious and nothing can melt the smiles from our faces. I wanted to shared some in bounds good times, pop colors and fun with you all. As most of you know by now Telluride, Colorado is my home away from home. It is my happy place. My place to find center. My place for ultimate creative inspiration. And of course my favorite place to ski!
Let’s make some turns together shall we?
I adore slope side fashions. The rainbow colors pop against the bright white snow and people look dashing in their gear. A little peek a boo fur is fun too! The devil horns on this little guy add some drama too. I bet he rips it down the slopes ~ grinning all the way. I need a helmet cover like that.
We have had a bunch of snow since we arrived. Lots of glorious Colorado, Rocky Mountain powder.
A snow boarder makes some turns on See Forever too!
Check out this brightly colored beauty…
And how about this gal. In a tutu and bright pink ski pants. My kind of glamour!
These ladies were in town for Women’s Ski Week. I could not get over their fabulous outfits and pom pom headbands. They were a blast to watch on the slopes too!
The kids ski like little dynamos here. Seems like the common age to start this spectacular sport is 3 years old. Thankfully my kids have been showered with attention by the awesome folks at the Telluride Ski School since they were three. My kids never want the day to end. No matter what you age or ski ability there is a perfect group for you. Everyone fits in here.
In the summer my kids hang out at Tel Ski’s Eco Adventure program. Through the years we have become very close to the folks who instruct and take such great care of our kids.
Here is Eric. He was my daughter’s first ski instructor. *Hi Eric!*
Here is Iggy. He has been skiing with my daughter and her buddies the past 2 weeks…
Here is my daughter with our great buddy Jonathon. He hikes with the kids in the summer and makes turns with us in the winter. He is also in charge of the goings on at Eco Adventures. Love this guy!
My little guy is now 5. He insists on a pensive gondola ride each morning to reflect on the day ahead…
After that he gets all geared up and ready to swoosh down the mountain.
My daughter is doing amazing. This trip she has been sking some Telluride black runs.
If you have been here then you know this terrain is very varied and you can get exactly what you need out of it.
The graphics on skis and snowboards always fascinate me. They are bold, bright and also pop against the glorious white snow.
From the wildest double black diamond EX runs to gentle cruisers with the most breathtaking scenery. There is lots of fun no matter what your ability.
If skiing is not your thing then you can also hop into Eco Adventures where you can go on snow shoe tours, cruise the mountain on ski bikes, snow mobiling, nordic skiing, horseback riding, dog sledding and lots more. Come to think of it I need to meet up with a few of those husky dogs. The photo op would be spectacular!
The thing here is enjoying the outdoors even if just for a few minutes.
Let’s take another peek…
Take a look at a beautiful summer wedding at Gorrono as seen on Style Me Pretty blog. Stunning!
It is always nice after a day on the slopes to kick up your heels and unwind with friends and family.
Are you a skier or a snow boarder? What is your favorite ski resort?
Have you ever been to Telluride? If not you must…
Off to hit the slopes!
