T is for Telluride Thanksgiving – Telluride.com

Lets hear it for the T’s! Time for Thanksgiving, Turkey, Tryptophan and Turns in Telluride! We’re excited to reflect on a wonderful summer with friends and family, kick off the 40th season at the Telluride Ski Resort, eat way too much and prepare ourselves for another wonderful winter here in Telluride. We’ve done our wall sits, off-season cleanses and ridiculous snow rituals… now it’s time to take it to the slopes for the next 130+ days. We hope you join us for some turns this winter and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Here’s your Top 5 Best Things to do in town this week THANKS to Telluride.com‘s insight:

Wednesday, November 21st – Donation Day – Strap on your skis and hop on the slopes one day early… and give back to a good cause!

Lift tickets are $25 for everyone participating and 100% of the proceeds go to help fund tuition for a number of Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club (TSSC) members. “Everyone who buys a ticket, that money goes directly into the financial assistance fund.
