VIDEO | Telluride Ski Resort Shares Inversion Over Telluride Valley

clouds

One of the coolest phenomena we see here in Telluride is due to the box canyon nature of the town. Inversion occurs because the valley socks in colder air as the sky above warms with the sun. As the sun begins to breach the peaks and shine in the valley, the inversion disappears as town warms. It’s quite a view especially after an overnight snow dropping four inches on the top of the ski mountain.

SKI Magazine | Top Ranked Western Ski Resorts, Telluride #4

No matter where you live, Telluride is “pretty remote,”
 “off the beaten path,” and some might say “a long way from civilization”. But that’s exactly what makes this southwestern-Colorado town so amazing. You won’t find a prettier spot in ski country: Readers rank Telluride, surrounded by “breathtakingly beautiful” peaks, No. 1 for Scenery. A free gondola makes shuttles between Mountain Village and downtown a cinch, and locals and visitors alike love that the slopes are “virtually empty.” While some might bemoan the high prices and want some cheaper dining, Telluride delivers a ski experience that “caters to all.” Families praise the well-run ski school, and strong intermediates will find the easy-to-access Revelation Bowl a dream, even if it does get tracked out quickly. Experts, take note: Whether you’re up for a 20-minute hike or you just want to stick to the lifts, Telluride offers “some of the best steep terrain in the country”. Hop on the Gold Hill Express or hike toward Palmyra Peak for plenty of fresh tracks, chutes, and steep lines. And while we can hardly wait for the ski area to replace the achingly slow Plunge lift, you can’t beat skiing into town after a long day 
in the alpine. Telluride’s growing reputation means it’s no longer the “best-kept secret in the world,” but this picturesque ski town “needs to be on every skier’s bucket list.” —Megan Barber

Wilhelmsberg, with its almost 150 years of history, and its 22 rooms with a total area of 700-square-meters, is undoubtedly one of Gothenburg’s truly unique private homes. The house is located on a huge beautiful garden plot with an area of 3,378-square-meters, with bushes, trees and fountains, as well as a grand four-car garage. In 1865, Julius Lindström, a wholesaler of snuff and tobacco, bought the property from James Dickson and built a summer residence in the Renaissance style, inspired by a castle in Normandy. He retained the services of renowned city architect, Victor von Gegerfeldt and the building was completed around 1868. Lindström also beautified the park in the style of an English garden, and adorned it with fountains and statues. Lindström was an important man in Gothenburg, and at times was a city councilman and member of parliament, as well as being known as a public benefactor.
