Vaudeville tonight - the 30th - Sheridan Opera House

Tonight, the 30th, our neighbor and namesake - the Sheridan Opera House, has set up a night of fun and smiles - a Vaudeville night as its kick-off to its hundredth anniversary as our neighbor.
Yes, it is tucked in behind us.

  • No new snow overnight. The base is at 24", 14" powder this week, 63" total. Snow showers look likely today.

Back to the Vaudeville starting at 8 tonight:

To kick off the Sheridan Opera House's 100th anniversary celebration, the SAF presents a Vaudeville Variety Night during its annual Holiday Concert Series fundraiser. The night will feature can-can dancers, stand-up comedy, a magician and a melodrama featuring local celebrities and more.

Tables will be set up for cocktail seating to recreate the entertainment of the early days at the SOH. Tickets are sold individually or tables (with complimentary wine and champagne) are for sale.

Join in and reserve here at the Sheridan's site.

Telluride World Cup 2012-13 Video

Today, we have the finals of the World Cup Ski and Snowboard Cross - set on another 4" of fresh powder brought by the glory of mountain drafts. Go drafts.

These athletes as you will see in the video are other-worldly. You can see the finish line from our roof top hot tubs - that is the joy of one of the downtown Telluride hotels like us - like the New Sheridan.
