It’s a classic tale: Man falls in love. Man makes silly decisions due to newfound love. Man proceeds to devote his entire life to this love. Man reflects; decides it’s silly, but that there’s no other better way, and continues to devote his life to this oddly funny obsession.
Forget rom-coms, we’re talking about skiing. There are only a few places in the lower 48 of the continental USA that can invoke such a life path, and the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado is one of them.
Presented by Stio, A San Juan Story is a three-part series capturing a ski season in the mountains near Telluride. Viewers beware: You might fall in love with the San Juan Mountains after watching these videos. We’ll updated this page with each new episode, so be sure to check back regularly.
