As one of the top ski instructors at the Telluride Ski School, Hindman teamed up with Telluride Helitrax in 2014 to create a helicopter-skiing camp for the extreme at heart.

Telluride’s Hagen Kearney charged into World Cup snowboarding history in Austria this week.

Kearney, a longtime rider with the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club, reached the pinnacle of snowboard cross racing when he won the opening World Cup event of the season in Montafon, Austria.
