What's Going On This Week?
It’s that time of year again and the holiday season is upon us. Visitors will soon be making their way to Telluride to enjoy our glorious mountain and to experience our special little box canyon. There are plenty of great events coming up to get us in the holiday spirit. On Saturday, get your ink blotters ready and cross your fingers, because it is your chance to win a turkey! Adult Turkey Bingo will be at 6:30 and 8:30 and 15 games will be played. A family-friendly version will be played on Saturday from 3-5PM. Also happening on Saturday is the Met Opera: The Exterminating Angel, a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Next Friday, head to Hanley Ice Rink to brush up on your skating skills for the upcoming season! Last but not least, with Opening Day delayed, Telluride Ski Resort will offer a range of activities for visitors to enjoy during its “Thanksgiving Snow Jam”. From holiday movies to free rail jams and plenty of kids’ activities, there will be plenty to do over the long holiday weekend. Check out more on each event below:
