TEX - Telluride, CO aka To-Hell-You-Ride
1. The nickname above stems from the harrowing journey it took to get to Telluride back in the gold rush mining days.
2. The town was originally founded under the name "Columbia," which it was eventually forced to change by the US Postal Service in 1887 due to confusion with another mining town, Columbia, CA.
3. Come shred the gnar at Telluride ski resort, which has over 2,000 skiable acres.
