Congratulations to the most recent Work Hard, Play Hard Award recipients! While they were each recognized for different reasons, both students have exhibited the TMS’ core values of respect, love of learning, responsibility, and integrity throughout the year.

Ever wonder how you get the Work Hard, Play Hard award at TMS? Each week a student or students are nominated by their teachers for various reasons, such as going above and beyond, stepping out of their comfort zone, showing progress in class, or being a leader. Congratulations to this week's Work Hard, Play Hard award recipients for stepping out of their comfort zones at the Winter Carnival! #telluridemountainschool #workhardplayhard

Annually, in celebration of completing the Free Ride Committee programming, upper school students ski at Silverton Mountain. This celebration allows students to explore new terrain and learn how to ski backcountry safely from professional guides. This year, a group of seven students completed five laps at Silverton, all while having fun and keeping the stoke!
Lower school students engage in a chemistry lab focused on chemical and physical reactions #science #telluridemountainschool
Last weekend, upper school students completed their Avalanche Rescue and Recreational Avalanche Safety Level 1 Course. Special thanks to the crew at Mountain Trip for their excellent instruction! #telluridemountainschool
Today marked the last day of the six week Montessori Ski PE. program. Blue skies and spring skiing conditions made a great ending of the season. We celebrated the end of the day with rice crispy treats from miss Meredith! #telluridemountainschool
We had a super fun annual Winter Carnival! #telluridemountainschool
This TMS Upper School student received the Work Hard, Play Hard award not only for his commitment to his teammates but for going above and beyond on the Freeride Committee winter hut trip at St. Paul Lodge. Each morning he woke up early, prepared water, and started a fire so that the rest of the group would wake up warm and hydrated. He was always happy to help do chores and ask if there was anything else he could do to help. He did an excellent job skiing all the backcountry terrain and learning about avalanche awareness. He was an all-around awesome team member! Congratulations!
Happy Valentine’s Day from #telluridemountainschool
A TMS favorite! In a science unit, Lower school students dressed up as their favorite element to present their research projects. #telluridemountainschool #science
