  • Favorite Ski Run: I’m a big fan of 37° 55'30"N - 107° 50'25"W but you have to catch it right after the snow storm before the sun gets to it.
  • Telluride Insider Tip: Don’t believe anybody about the weather no matter how long they have lived here!
  • Favorite Snack: I could eat Tacos or Burritos 7 days a week no problem.
