The Great Outdoors | National Park Neighbors

There is a delight in the hardy life of the open. There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy and its charm.

Forbes: Ski Resorts With Great Women’s Programs

Forbes-Telluride-TellurideSkiiing-TellurideTourismBoardRyanBonneau

Telluride, Colorado

Last year I covered several major ski resorts, including Beaver Creek, Jackson Hole and Keystone that had notable special programs for women or families. Fortunately, this is a growing trend and this year there are more women-friendly ski and snowboard offerings than ever before. Here’s a sampling (by no means comprehensive) of some great options.

Telluride, CO: I’ve been to Telluride summer and winter and just love the resort and town. Telluride claims its Women’s Week was the first women-only ski program in Colorado, and over the years it has grown to include many extras. It is offered in three and five-day versions and in addition to expert ski instruction includes yoga, meditation, wellness speakers, equipment fitting and après fun. There is one session monthly from January through March and packages are independent of lodging, though the camps offer discounts at a variety of local hotels. Telluride also offers snowboarders one three-day women’s camp, SheRide, annually in March. It provides lessons to all levels, from never evers to advanced double black riders. This is an adult specific camp for women 18 years and older.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort, CO: Crested Butte just added its new Women’s Tips on Tuesdays ski clinics this season. These half-day, women-only ski school sessions are led by top female instructors, and are ideal for ladies looking for a guided group session with instruction and an informal, fun vibe. Each clinic concludes with a glass of wine at the resort’s new on-mountain Umbrella Bar. Sessions run from 1:30 -3:30. The Women’s Tips on Tuesdays clinic is available to female skiers levels 3-7.

Sun Valley, ID: The nation’s first destination ski resort celebrates its 80th birthday with several new programs, including the Women’s-only Weekend (WOW, February 3 – 5, 2017). WOW emphasizes camaraderie and skills improvement and maximizes learning in a supportive environment. Small groups focus on technique with Sun Valley’s leading female instructors, along with après ski events and video analysis. Locals can also access DIVAS, a women’s only all-mountain experience for intermediate to advanced skiers. Developed for women, by women, the DIVAS program includes a 2.5-hour group lesson one day per week for eight weeks with Sun Valley’s top female athletes and instructors.

Alta, Utah: One of the classic lodging spots in American skiing, the beloved Alta Lodge teams up with top instructors from Alta’s Alf Engen Ski School for its popular annual Women’s Intermediate-Advanced Ski Camps. These offer three days of skiing, four nights of lodging, great food and camaraderie. Each day includes morning and afternoon instruction in a supportive, ability-specific group environment. This is followed by video and analysis of your skiing and an evening presentation. Camps are open to intermediates and above who can consistently use parallels turns and confidently cruise blue groomed runs. Three camps are offered in January and March and include meals and high performance ski demos. The hotel also has one annual Women’s Advance Expert Ski Camp in February for skiers who are already comfortable on all black runs in most snow conditions and enjoy venturing off-piste, into steeps and moguls. Alta Lodge is a European-style full-board hotel that is ski-in, ski-out.

Beaver Creek, CO: There may be no resort in the nation so fixated on families as Beaver Creek – which also happens to be the most luxurious destination in skiing. Again, I wrote in detail about its offerings last year, but the highlight is an industry leading two-hour daily free tour/clinic, a social and learning experience run by female ski ambassadors. Beaver Creek is not the only member of the Vail Resorts family focusing on the ladies: both Vail and Breckenridge, CO have women only offerings.

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

Forbes-Telluride-TellurideSkiiing-TellurideTourismBoardRyanBonneau

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.

J. Crew Men’s Designer Heads West This Summer With A Trip To Dunton Hot Springs

From J.Crew Blog:

J. Crew’s Dutch-born men’s designer, Frank, has always gotten ideas for their traditional American gear from the landscapes of the West. This summer, he headed to Colorado’s, Utah’s and Wyoming’s national parks to soak up (and share) some scenery. Here’s a sample of what he saw…and packed.

Arches National Park.
Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone in Yellowstone National Park.
Frank at Taggart Lake in Grand Teton National Park.
Mesa Arch at Canyonlands National Park.

WHY DID YOU PICK THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY?

I’ve had pictures of Dunton Hot Springs [a rustic retreat located in a former ghost town in southwest Colorado] on my inspiration boards for years, so it was just a natural decision to finally go see it in person. Its rough-hewn look and location have always appealed to me. There’s something incredibly romantic about that part of the country. 

WHAT WAS THE BEST PART OF THE TRIP?

Arches and Canyonlands [national parks in Utah] never fail to impress, but my favorite part was watching a herd of bison in Yellowstone… It made me feel at one with nature but also reminded me that this part of the country belongs to the wildlife. Spotting some grizzlies was pretty cool as well! 

WHAT DID YOU PACK?

I almost always pack the same things: a lightweight windbreaker to keep dry, a fleece top to keep warm and some versatile shorts. Sturdy hiking boots are also a must. I wore mine on the plane to save space in my luggage. 

ANY ADVICE FOR YOUR FELLOW TRAVELERS CONSIDERING A TRIP OUT WEST?

Go at the end of May, beginning of June, to avoid the crowds at Yellowstone. The wildflowers will be in bloom and a lot of newborn animals will be out for the first time. We saw bison and moose calves and grizzly cubs.
