"Telluride is more of a destination than a stop along the way," Kenworthy says of the small Western Slope town where he grew up. "It's awesome in the winter and has some of the best skiing terrain in the whole area. In the summer it's just as nice." Gus points to the endless mountain biking and hiking trails throughout what used to be a silver mining camp in the late 1800's.

There's also the annual Bluegrass Festival, the Telluride Film Festival, and the Blues and Brews festival.

As far as the local snack shack, Gus eats at Baked all the time. "It actually burned down two years ago and they rebuilt it so now it's really clean and nice," he says. His go-to order: A bagel with butter, cream cheese, and avocado.
