What Happens to a Ski Town When It Doesn’t Snow

What Happens to a Ski Town When It Doesn’t Snow

 

It’s not all bad—the trail running and mountain biking are still sweet. Not to mention the fat biking.

Why not rent a fat bike from Bootdoctors to cruise the town out to the local brewery and distillery?

 

Get some insight on what adventures the locals seek while we patiently await the much needed snow. Read the full story below in ADVENTURE JOURNAL.

 

What Happens to a Ski Town When It Doesn’t Snow

All the cues were there: the days grew shorter, the Thanksgiving turkey was carved and holiday lights were strung. But winter, it seemed, didn’t get the hint. And as the calendar marched through November and into December in Telluride, Colorado, winter remained conspicuously absent. Instead, warm temperatures and clear, dry days prevailed.

Town Hosts Ski Burn and Snow Dances

Wednesday, Dec. 20 at 5:30 p.m. • Elk’s Park

Telluride needs to be wearing its winter whites so it is officially time to coerce Mother Nature into delivering an abundance of white gold we so cherish. Telluride’s town officials, ski resort owners and spiritual leaders have come together to ask the Gods of Winter to grace us with their powers. An event to praise our mystical spirits of winter has been organized in order to ask for the much needed snow for our resort and the health of our environment.

 

Tomorrow evening Telluride will host an evening of entertainment beginning with the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe dancers performing their traditional snow dance around the bonfire.

 

This will be followed by a prayer from the great God of Winter, Ullr, to grace this town with his presence.

 

Ullr, originally known as the god of archery, hunting and the winter, is more modernly hailed as the God of Snow or the God of Skiing. Ullr is the god most called upon these days to help make it snow. His presence along with the Ute Mountain Ute’s traditional snow dance, the sacrifice of skis to the flame, music, dancing, drinking and merriment are all believed to help bring winter weather.

 

Beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Elk’s Park, next to the ski tree, Master of Ceremonies, Mayor Sean Murphy, will bring the community together to celebrate the winter to come.

– Telluride Holiday Pop-Up Market at the Sheridan Opera House December 19-21
