Others say it originated from the castaway call "To-Hell-You-Ride"

Kenworthy spent much of his childhood and teenage years on the Telluride Ski Resort, where he practically lived in the terrain park, hitting

Ranked No. 1 ski resort in North America by Condé Nast Traveler
Telluride Ski and Golf Company and local tourism officials are celebrating the news that Telluride was recently named the No. 1 ski resort in North America by Condé Nast Traveler.The results were derived from the luxury travel magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Survey.
