Telluride Mountainfilm Festival

Tomorrow morning, I’m leaving on a six-hour drive to Telluride for the annual MountainFilm Festival. Only we’ll have our two kids, ages 2 and 6, with us, so it’ll be closer to eight hours with all of the pit stops. Located in a narrow canyon with a waterfall at its head, Telluride is Colorado’s quintessential mountain town. MountainFilm was founded in 1979 and is a great excuse to visit this stunning place.

Here’s how MountainFilm describes itself “Currently in its 32nd year, the Mountainfilm Festival is a four-day, six-senses experience of art, adventure, culture and the environment. It attracts filmmakers, photographers, conservationists, mountaineers and explorers from around the world. Our audiences also come from around the world to gather in theaters that range from historical to state-of-the-art in the box canyon of Telluride, Colorado and the gondola-linked town of Mountain Village.”

We’re staying at the luxurious Capella Telluride, a ski-in ski-out hotel and spa connected to downtown by a gondola. I expect the gondola will be the highlight of my children’s visit, but we’re excited to find out what sort of family activities Capella offers. We’ll try to catch as many films as a couple with two young kids possibly can. My tick list includes Hawaii Wave Ski, Last Paradise, Mount St. Elias, and Signatures. A description of the films can be found on www.mountainfilm.org. Stay tuned for updates from Telluride. Over and out.
