TWINKLING LIGHTS

BLAST OFF!

IT’S A COLD, STARRY NIGHT and it is lightly snowing. My mom and I just finished Christmas shopping for presents. The Gondola operator gives us a few blankets as we get on. I stare out the window looking at all the trees as my breath fogs up the window. I make up little stories of my past dreams with my frozen fingers, quickly as my cold breath on the window fades. Through the trees, we see all the Christmas lights throughout the town.

“THREE, TWO, ONE, BLAST OFF!” we all shout as we exit the bronze station. The Gondola shakes, then bumps up and down thrice, like the take-off of a rocket. Then we glide smoothly out, over the slopes and town. As we glide out, I peer at tall aspens and pines. Some are sprinkled with snow, like powdered sugar on French toast. Other times the trees have their branches full of orange or bright green leaves. Under me, skiers carve turns as powdery snow shoots up behind them, and sometimes the ground under me is filled with fall leaves, so much that I call it the yellow brick road.

I spot the big tree with all the lights at the end of the street I live on. The only thing I hear is silence and the rumbling of the snow machine getting ready for the zooming skiers in the morning. I turn my head to see the snowcat grooming the freshly made snow. The Gondola at night helps you see that not only do people on the mountain work hard in the day, they work just as hard at night. The snowcat continues on as we slowly glide down the steady Gondola. I look back at the town and even though it’s freezing outside I am warm inside with joy. I remind myself that not many people can see their town or city from above. We are only half-way down but I have lost track of time looking at the lights. As the snow howls along with the coyotes, the wind timidly quiets down to only a trickle of snowflakes dropping from the clouds. I look up behind me only to see the mountain standing up taller and taller, trying to topple over me. Only it does not. It stays at its highest point waiting for me to reach the bottom. I look back at the lights in Telluride only to say good-bye to the overview of the town.

In the night, the views are magical. The town twinkles from magnificent night life. You always meet the most amazing people on the Gondola. One time we leapt onto the Gondola to find a tall man with a dark guitar case. We immediately sprung into conversation. Soon he was singing Irish tunes, while his fingers gracefully danced over his guitar. Sometimes you learn the most interesting things, like what was happening at the Fire Festival. When it’s chilly outside I love to draw on the windows. Gondola rides are always filled with fantastic times and memories. Again, the Gondola bumps and shakes. Suddenly the shiny doors swing open. Everyone announced their farewells. After we all exit, I glance at the glass filled with drawings of smiling faces and crazy animals. At all the memories of the last wonderful ride. “Come back again soon!” the Gondola whispers, and I know I will. I always love a Gondola ride. Whether it’s to hit the slopes or for the views, the Gondola is a perfect place to go. visittelluride.com | 855.421.4360

COVER STORY

CITY

of

LIGHT By Erin Spillane

It was the late 1880s and mining in Telluride was in its heyday. The town had more millionaires per capita than any other place on earth. Otto Mears’ brand new toll road provided easier access to markets hungry for Telluride’s gold and silver. Grand houses were popping up on Columbia Avenue and gold coins were piled in two-foot-tall stacks in Telluride’s banks – lucrative enough to attract the attention of Butch Cassidy who robbed his first bank right here on Colorado Avenue in 1889. >>

WATER SPORTS

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

RYAN BONNEAU©

As the snow melts, area streams and free-flowing rivers become playgrounds for river rafting and kayaking. The solitude and natural beauty of the canyons can only be explored by floating their streams. The region offers an array of river sports with vistas that are second to none. Local outfitters take paddlers on half-day or full-day excursions through class II to III+ rapids. There is also kayaking and SUPing (stand-up paddle boarding) on the rivers and alpine lakes, all great ways to soak up the sun while getting a workout. If that sounds like too much hard work, grab an inner tube and meander down the San Miguel River from Town Park.

FLY FISHING

Fly fishing in the greater Telluride region can challenge experts and entertain beginning enthusiasts. Telluride is an angler’s paradise in every season, offering a different experience for fishing the rivers and lakes in the area. Many locals will tell you that their favorite time to cast is at dusk when the sunset over the river creates a rainbow glow. From the Dolores River to the easily accessible San Miguel River, there is a fishing adventure for everyone. Local guides know the ins and outs of the area’s rivers and streams, offering guided tours and invaluable advice about flies and water complexities. HORSEBACK / WAGON RIDES Have an Old West experience by riding through the San Juans’ aspen groves and alpine meadows on horseback. Outfitters offer guided daytime outings, half-day trail rides and overnight trips. Or try a wagon ride followed by a gourmet dinner served outdoors. Altogether an unforgettable experience.

Then, they go to work, logging all their completed tasks in the Adventure Quest app and racking up points throughout the weekend. Competitors can use the app to keep track of how other teams in the state are doing with the in-app live scoreboard. Adventure Quest winners get gear from a range of sponsors, plus a great story to tell friends. Learn more at OutdoorAdventureQuest.com/Events/Colorado.


OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Favorite Hikes BEAR CREEK >> Telluride’s most popular acclimatization hike – about 4.5 miles roundtrip – is analogous to skiing a green run. Nonetheless, don’t be fooled; starting at South Pine St., the beautiful double track takes you into Bear Creek Canyon, gaining about 1,050 feet in elevation on its way to a cascading waterfall at the base of the Wasatch Basin – a gateway to longer hikes.

>> Starting at the Cornet Creek Bridge on North Aspen Street, the Wiebe is a 3-mile-long loop that vigorously climbs about 1,200 feet to a summit ridge with panoramic views that encompass not just Telluride far below, but also Bridal Veil Falls and the Telluride Ski Resort. Because it begins and ends in town, the trail acts as the town’s treadmill with locals often using it on lunch breaks and after work.

JUD WIEBE

>> This family favorite is about 5.5 miles roundtrip and begins in a forest broken by streams and meadows of wildflowers. Eventually the trail, whose total elevation gain is 1,200 feet, ascends via a series of steep switchbacks for about 40 minutes. Continue through rolling alpine tundra until you arrive at Lake Hope. Access the trailhead by traveling south on Hwy. 145, turning left at Trout Lake. After about a mile, turn left on Forest Road 627. LAKE HOPE

SNEFFELS HIGHLINE >> At 13 miles long and with a hefty elevation gain of 2,274 feet, the Highline is best accessed by getting on the Wiebe at North Aspen, taking the left at the top of the third switchback to Mill Creek and heading north at the sign for Sneffels Highline. The trail ascends through aspens and steeply crisscrosses a scree field before topping out at a 12,000-foot ridge and descending through a valley lush with wildflowers.

Before any hike, consult complete trail descriptions and a map, check the weather and be prepared. Local Susan Kees’ Telluride Hiking Guide is a useful companion.

HIKING / RUNNING

Trails weaving throughout the mountains afford hikers a quick jaunt to waterfalls or an opportunity to spend the day traversing high-alpine-terrain, uncovering old mining ruins and viewing wildflowers. The trail system in the region has an extensive list of short strolls, day hikes or overnight backpacking adventures into the high country. Both the towns of Telluride and Mountain Village have trails that lead out of town in all directions, where hikers can experience the cool mountain air and unrivaled scenery. ROCK CLIMBING

Routes and boulders for all abilities in the greater Telluride region include jagged peaks and extensive wall faces that provide a variety of climbing and bouldering opportunities. From classic routes on Ophir Wall to moderate climbs on Pipeline and the ladder/cable system of Telluride’s own Via Ferrata, the ascents are diverse and plentiful. For those learning the sport or seeking instruction, a number of guide services are available and local maps, information and gear can be found at many sport shops. The Telluride Mountain Club reminds climbers of all abilities that many climbs, in particular the Via Ferrata, require technical climbing abilities and appropriate gear.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

In Love with the Peace of Telluride BY EMILY SHOFF

THE STAGE was set for makeup entrepreneur Bobbi Brown to fall in love with Telluride. She first arrived nearly two decades ago during a blizzard on Christmas Eve. With her husband and two kids, ages 2 and 4, in tow, she wandered into a brandnew restaurant in Telluride: Rustico. Bobbi explains, “With the time change, the kids promptly fell asleep at dinner. My husband had to carry them back through the storm to the Gondola.” She remembers, though, watching the snow spinning through the night sky and falling in love with the quiet that fell over the whole town. Shortly after, she and her husband purchased a condo at the Franz Klammer. Several years later, they decided they wanted to extend their time and space here and built a home in Mountain Village, one that could accommodate their by-then three children, the youngest of whom was a ski fanatic and who would finish high school in Telluride. From the get-go, Bobbi has been invested in the on-goings of the town. She contributed make-up and artists to the Telluride AIDS Benefit for many years and has hosted events for various nonprofits at her house. She has also done signings at Between the Covers. She has written a whopping eight books on beauty and makeup, including one geared towards teens, of whom she is a big advocate. On International Women’s Day in 2013, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics launched The Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women & Girls, an organization that seeks to empower women through job skills training programs and girls through education.

BOBBI BROWN Makeup Entrepreneur First visited Telluride Around 1990

One of Bobbi’s favorite events in town is the Telluride Film Favorite restaurant Festival. A movie fan, she loves the intimacy of the weekend—the La Cocina de Luz talks, the small screenings, the interactions between guests and lecI laughed out loud when turers. The BBC guest’s kids walked She has a list of spots she loves frequenting in town including in during a live interview La Cocina, Scarpe, and Two Skirts, the last of which features her Currently reading make-up. Another place she always stops is Cashmere Red. “I never Orphan Train leave there empty-handed.” by Christina Baker Kline But for Bobbi, ultimately her favorite thing about Telluride is At my dream dinner party the very element that brought her here: it’s quiet. “The trail I return seat me next to Jennifer Aniston to again and again is Bear Creek,” she says, laughing a little as she admits that it’s not very adventurous. “I’m scared of heights!” For her, it’s more about the peace of that trail. No matter the season— whether she’s hiking or snowshoeing—she loves the solace that she can find right out of town. Indeed, it’s this solace that draws her to Telluride again and again. “When I come to Telluride, I’m ready for life to move a little more slowly; I’m ready to decompress.” Although she loves the vibe of town, loves its many restaurants, what she loves best is dining with her friends at her home. “Whether I’m sitting on the deck in the summer at 8 o’clock at night or sitting inside, watching the snow fall outside; it doesn’t matter. Telluride always restores me.” a visittelluride.com | 855.421.4360

Historic Walking Tour The Telluride area boasts a rich history and one of the West’s most iconic Victorian area mining towns. In the 1700s, the Ute Indians used the San Juan Mountains and the San Miguel River banks as summer camps. Explorers and survey parties passed through the area in the 1700s and 1800s, but it was the mining industry that brought the first European settlers in 1876 when the Sheridan Mine registered its operation in the Marshall Basin above Telluride. The mountains turned out to be loaded with zinc, lead, copper, iron and silver, but once gold was discovered, the boom was on. In a short, 20-year span, the town grew from a hodgepodge of cabins and shacks to rows of elegant Victorians and stately brick buildings. Today, many of the structures still exist, illustrating the rich history of the town while housing modern boutiques and restaurants. Telluride was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1964, the highest level of historic status given by the US Secretary of the Interior. In an effort to protect the character and authenticity of the area, Telluride established the Historic and Architectural Review Commission (HARC), which reviews new building or remodeling plans before construction begins. The Historic Walking Tour is a self-guided walk through the area’s storied past. 1. SAN MIGUEL COUNTY COURTHOUSE The courthouse was originally built on the south side of West Colorado Avenue in 1886 but burned shortly after construction. The bricks were saved to build the present courthouse less than a year later on the opposite corner (Colorado Ave. and Oak St.). Recently renovated, it is still in use today. 2. NEW SHERIDAN HOTEL & OPERA HOUSE Built in 1891, Telluride’s first hotel was destroyed by fire in 1894 and rebuilt in brick in 1895. At the same time, the Sheridan Bar was built, and it is now one of the oldest bars in the West. The bar has remained unchanged since 1895, boasting its original lead glass divider panels, mahogany wood paneling and filigree light fixtures. Patrons are served beverages on the original hand-carved cherry wood bar that was imported from Austria. The New Sheridan was recently accepted as a member of the National Trust for Historic Hotels of America. In 1913, the opera house was added and named the Segerberg Opera House, after builders J.A. and Arvid Segerberg. The building was eventually named the Sheridan Opera House after its neighboring bar and hotel. 3. THE PEKKARINE BUILDING One of the oldest structures on Colorado Avenue, this building was home to the Pekkarine family. Mr. Pekkarine emigrated to the US from Finland in the late 1800s and opened a boot shop in the basement. On the second floor, he later operated a mercantile store. The Pekkarines lived on the third floor. At the settling of the Pekkarine estate in 1974, valuable artefacts were donated to the Telluride Historical Museum. 4. ROMA BAR BUILDING The Roma Building was home to one of the town’s oldest and most raucous bars. Now the Roma Bar & Grill, the downstairs still contains the original 1860 Brunswich-Balke-Collender Company bar, which is carved from walnut with 12-foot French mirrors. The building was most recently renovated in 2016.

5. ST. PATRICK’S CATHOLIC CHURCH Reverend J.J. Gibbons, pastor of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church-made his first trip to Telluride from Ouray for a baptism, traveling by horseback over the slippery mountain passes. In 1896, he helped build St. Patrick’s Catholic Church of Telluride on Catholic Hill for $4,800. By 1899, the church had 200 parishioners. The wooden figures of the Stations of the Cross were carved in the Tyrol area of Austria. In 2005, the interior of St. Patrick’s was remodeled. 6. OLD WAGGONER HOUSE Charles Delos Waggoner, president of the Bank of Telluride (yellow brick building with pillars on Main Street), contrived a scheme purportedly to save his bank in the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Waggoner, aka “Buck,” siphoned money from New York banks to keep his clients from losing their life savings once the Bank of Telluride could no longer pay its creditors. Waggoner testified in court, “I would rather see the New York banks lose money than the people of Telluride, most of whom have worked all their lives for the savings that were deposited in my bank.” Although rumored to be in Mexico or Canada, he was found in New Castle, Wyoming and had only $400 when he was arrested. Waggoner was sentenced to 15 years in prison but was paroled after six years. 7. TOWN HALL The building was constructed on Fir Street and Columbia Avenue in 1883 as Telluride’s first schoolhouse. The one-room structure held one teacher and 53 students and was built for $3,000. After a new school was built, the town offices occupied the building. 8. TELLURIDE HISTORICAL MUSEUM Built in 1896 and named Hall’s Hospital after its first doctor – the building served as the community hospital treating miners and townspeople until it closed in 1964 due to a decline in the population. It reopened in 1966 as the Telluride Historical Museum and was renovated in 2002. Ten rooms and outdoor exhibitions showcase Telluride’s unique and vibrant history with a vast collection of photographs, artefacts and exhibitions.  9. NORTH OAK HOUSE Built in 1900, this house was a survivor of the 1914 flood that careened down Cornet Creek, sweeping through town and depositing mud and debris from the Liberty Bell Mine down to Colorado Avenue.  One woman was killed and the Sheridan Bar was filled with mud halfway to the ceiling.  This house has been completely restored to its original condition and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Homes. 10. DAVIS HOUSE E.L. Davis who built this stately brick house in 1894, was a mining and real estate entrepreneur. He held an early interest in the Bullion Lode as well as numerous mining claims in the Ingram-Bridal Veil Basin and Bear Creek area. He owned all the land where the former Rio Grande Southern Train Depot now stands, as well as one-third interest in West Telluride. Davis sought to bring business to the town as vice-president of the Telluride Board of Trade. After Davis’s death, the house was sold to Dr. Oshner, who used it as a hospital, particularly during the 1918 flu epidemic. The house was renovated in 1983.
