Here’s a staggering statistic: More than 300 billion paper cups are tossed into landfills every year. That’s globally. In the US alone, that number is 58 billion. The paper cups we use — just once — for hot beverages like tea of coffee are lined with plastic and therefore costly to recycle. Recycling just doesn’t happen for this impactful amount of waste.
Enter entrepreneur Dagny Tucker, whose various start-ups focus on sustainability. Vessel Works, based out of Boulder, is a reusable coffee cup start-up that has established a pilot program in Telluride.…

Overall, the Telluride real estate market remains in great shape, despite coming in below a record-setting 2017 in most metrics. Notably, the in-town market is seeing record highs in list and sale price per square foot. This trend is likely due to multiple factors including a higher absorption rate in town as a finite supply is met with a persistent shift towards walkability and in-town lifestyle. This pattern is not specific to Telluride, as many ski communities are seeing similar increases in value relative to the convenience of in-town lifestyles, including Aspen. Another contributing factor to the escalation of price-per-square-foot in town is the availability of high-end new construction inventory.
Mountain Village is enjoying a period of high…

Unseasonably warm temps and dry weather have left most western ski resorts asking, “where’s the snow”? And while seasoned skiers remain calm knowing the snow will eventually come, the rest of us are left pondering, “what will I do if I can’t ski”?
The five-star skiing experience most flock to Telluride for often overshadows the depth and vitality of the eclectic mountain town. If you are planning an early winter trip to Telluride this season you will be pleasantly surprised at the number of non-snow related activities to choose from.

Beloved Telluride Postman, Jim Looney is going to Ireland thanks to a generous donor who agreed to send him, all expenses paid, if he was able to raise at least $15,000 for local radio station, KOTO. Read the below article from the Telluride Daily Planet for more:
According to Forbes.com, Telluride Ski Resort "wows with charm, scenery and great skiing."

"Ironically, in two decades of covering skiing and ski travel, the number one knock I hear over and over again is not lodging or shopping, it’s “Isn’t that hard to get to?” There seems to be a perception that Telluride is on a different planet than other Western ski resorts. This has always been a myth, and one that is especially odd in light of the three to four-hour traffic jams that routinely clog Colorado’s main ski thoroughfare for accessing other major resorts, I-70, every winter weekend. For years, getting to Telluride mainly meant flying into Montrose, which is considerably closer to the resort than…

To the ignorant, helicopters and mountain skiing have nothing to do with each other, but that’s where Steve Hindman steps in.
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.
“People think you have to jump off cliffs and do back flips, but with a helicopter you can land wherever you want,” Hindman said. “It’s really just about confidence. Mostly it’s just saying this is the terrain.”
The multi-day camps begin in January and run through March.…
