Snowboardcross World Cup: Telluride Goes International
Excerpt from local blogger, Maribeth Clemente, who reports on the 2009 World Cup snowboardercross events held in Telluride:
It was quite the scene here last weekend. Actually, the excitement grew over a two-week period that culminated with the Snowboardcross World Cup Finals at the Telluride Ski Resort last Sunday. It was the first World Cup event to take place here, and it certainly won’t be the last. Aside from sailing over the course on the chairlift one afternoon early on, I didn’t see any of the events. But I did breathe in the international flavor at a number of venues around town. There’s nothing like that foreign flair, and best of all, I learned that our international visitors were totally enchanted by everything Telluride has to offer.
