Three Telluride Athletes Compete in the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang

Raised on the slopes of Telluride, locals Gus Kenworthy, Keaton McCargo, and Hagen Kearney traveled to PyeongChang, South Korea to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. 

This is Kenworthy's second Winter Olympic Games as a member of the Freestyle team, first competing in Sochi in 2014 and winning the silver medal in Slopestyle. Suffering a broken thumb and bruised hip from a hard fall in practice one day before competing, Kenworthy finished out of the metals in the men's ski slopestyle competition. In typical Gus fashion, he rescued a South Korean dog. Kenworthy and newly adopted pup, Beemo, will be stateside shortly.

Also on the Freestyle team is McCargo, competing in the Moguls event. The US women’s moguls team came to the games with high hopes but small errors kept the team out of the finals. McCargo nailed it in the first qualifying round and  finished eighth in the second, just two spots away from the metals round.

Kearney is on the US Snowboard Team competing in the Snowboardcross event. He had a fall which prevented him from making it past the quarterfinals.

All three athletes are products of the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club, which TREC is proud to sponsor!

Mountain Village Amends Design Guidelines

Design Guidelines Relaxed in Mountain Village

On February 16th, the Mountain Village Town Council unanimously approved an amendment to the town’s design guidelines. The goal of the Community Development Code Design Review reads, “Architecture within the town will continue to evolve and create a unique mountain vernacular architecture that is influenced by international and regional historical alpine precedents. The Town encourages new compatible design interpretations that embrace nature, recall the past, interpret our current time, and move us into the future while respecting the design context of the neighborhood surrounding a site.”

To that end, the following design guidelines, among others, were approved:
– References to “solid, heavy” and “thick” bases as a design requirement were supplemented with language for design that appears “grounded” to the site to withstand alpine forces of wind, snow and heavy rain, with an expanded selection of building materials to choose from.

– Gable roofs are no longer the only required roof form, instead, the board added the requirement that roof design shall be made up of multiple forms that emphasize sloped planes, varied ridgelines and vertical offsets.

– The list of appropriate roof materials was also expanded to include black or gray standing seam materials, and certain synthetic materials that meet stated standards of durability, high strength and high-quality design.

– Individual windows are no longer required to be a maximum of 40 square feet. Instead, the new regulations require window use and placement be responsive to energy requirements, be an integral part of the design of the structure and be sensitive to adjoining properties. The standard that no more than 40% of the exterior of a structure be glass remains.

These guidelines apply to all architecture in the Mountain Village including residential and commercial properties.
