What's Going On This Week?
The holidays may be over, but the 2017 winter season in Telluride is in full swing and there are tons of great events happening this week! Have you ever seen synchronized skiing? The Ghostriders Ski Team practices their routine every Friday down Misty Maiden at 4pm, so don’t forget to check that out and cheer them on. On Saturday, head to the bottom of Lift 4 again because the Rail Jam is back! The competition will begin at 4pm and will be followed by an award ceremony at 6. Take some time to enjoy the mountain through the week and get ready to get funky with some live music. On Wednesday, check out The Floozies live in concert at the Sheridan Opera House and if one night of funk isn’t enough for you, you’re in luck! The Motet is live at Club Red on Thursday and trust us, you don’t want to miss this dance party. Check out more on each event below!
Ghostriders Ski Team: Have you seen synchronized skiing? Six to eight skiers perform elaborate maneuvers requiring split-second precision. The Ghostriders Ski Team practices their routine every Friday down Misty Maiden into Mountain Village at 4:00 pm.
Rail Jam: Rail Jam is once again at the Beach and is a favorite of those competing and watching alike. Come out and compete or just to be a spectator and enjoy a DJ. You can sign up to compete with a $15 entry at Bootdoctors in Mountain Village from 12-2 pm and then head out to the base of Chair 4 where the competition will begin. There will be an award ceremony at 6 pm where prizes will be given away. For more information contact Alex Brown at 970-728-7461.
The Floozies Live in Concert: This live electronic duo features brothers Matt and Mark Hill who share both the stage and a musical brain. Without a setlist, and without a word between them, Matt's guitar is in lockstep with the thud of Mark's kick. Endless looping and production builds the raw scenery upon which palm muted chugs, searing solos, and wobbling bass paint their dazzling array of colors.
The Motet Live at Club Red: The Motet, Denver-based funk band with a fresh, soulful style, famous for putting on energetic live shows in iconic venues across the country. They have seven studio albums including the recently released Totem, but they’re best known for putting on infectious dance parties in Colorado and beyond.
