There's a New TREC Team! J&W: Ben Jackson and Andrew Williamson - the Telluride lifestyle experts.

12 Days of Telluride Christmas

Holiday Magic 

There is nowhere better to be for the holidays than in magical Telluride! 
Wherever you may be enjoying the season, (hopefully here!) we hope you enjoy this collection of our favorite things from around town. 

Our small businesses are the heartbeat of Telluride - they are what keep the  independent spirit of the town alive and well.

We are shopping local this year - hopefully this guide makes it easy for you to do the same!

Cheers and happy holidays from all of us!
