Episode five of our six-part video series follows the story of Telluride Ski Patroller James Guest who started patrolling here when the resort opened in 1972.
This place is built on the shoulders of people like James, who sought and found freedom in Telluride. They created a place without crowds. A place where you can go your own way. A place where you can make your own mark.
