Ski Like a Local at Eldora

by Guest on Feb.10, 2013, under General

This blog comes to CSCUSA from Dan Rabin, local blogger and contributor and Rocky Mountain Reporter for Celebrator Beer News.

When you’re in an unfamiliar city and you want a good meal, your best bet is to put away your guidebook and find out where the locals go. You probably won’t get steered to the fanciest, most expensive, most famous place in town. More likely, you’ll be led to a place where the food is good and good value, and the vibe is friendly and relaxed.

Good Eats And Green Feats At Arapahoe Basin

by Guest on Feb.09, 2013, under General

This blog comes to CSCUSA from Justin Patrick, contributing writer to Denver Hotel Magazine.

As Colorado skiers and boarders are getting fired up for another winter season, Arapahoe Basin’s head chef Chris Rybak is firing up the kitchen to deliver a culinary experience as exhilarating and diverse as the terrain outside his high-altitude restaurant. After five seasons with the resort, Rybak has no plans of slowing down his mission to provide delicious, healthy food with a minimum of waste. His partnership with A-Basin has allowed a vision to come alive that will likely be pursued by other resorts as they realize the many strengths of the operation. That vision includes a diverse forward-thinking menu, a moonlight dinner series, and a commitment to sustainable practices aimed at reducing waste, promoting recycling and composting techniques, and demonstrating to the public how easy it is to participate.

Ski Season Picking Up: Flocks of Skiers and Snowboarders Migrate to Colorado Slopes

by Colorado Snow Sensei on Feb.06, 2013, under General

As snow stacked up at Colorado ski resorts recently, skiers and snowboarders renewed their devotion to the state’s signature sports. Absolving doubts that variable conditions were keeping skiers involved in other pursuits, Colorado Ski Country USA resorts were greeted with booming weekend traffic. The onslaught of new snow along with the opening of more terrain and a broad menu of creative deals from resorts made it hard for skiers and riders to stay indoors last week.

Snow: Not the Only Thing Falling

by Mountain Correspondent on Feb.03, 2013, under Colorado Skiing, General, Resorts

Ski season’s in full swing in Colorado Ski Country USA. Yes, we had a slow start, but it’s really turning around; every single one of our resorts and ski areas got dumped on at some point over the past week. That’s huge! In my neck of the wods, it loked like it was snowing potato chips at one point. And while it’s NOT Colorado’s first snow, I think that the calming melodies of the good Hank Williams Sr. sum this up:

And while there’s been plenty of snow falling, there’s been something else falling on the slopes in Colorado: us. Falling is part of skiing, and while the twitter-verse and face-spaces are full of photos of all the glorious powder falling in Colorado, I thought I’d change it up a bit with some photos of crashes. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: Augerfest, February 2013. Enjoy!
