Colorado Ski Country USA had our 46th Annual Meeting last week and one of the highlights, aside from keynote speaker Dana Perino or the final skier visit announcement, was the unveiling of this year’s industry awards.
This year we had a special guest help us with the awards. Since we were at the University of Colorado, the school’s mascot Chip was on hand to do what he does best and cheer for the winners.
Life in Ski Country is funny. It’s not exactly like a box of chocolates, but it definitely has its surprises. Take this morning for example, here in Denver, we woke up to fresh snow, and in the mountains, they’ve been getting accumulations all morning.

This weekend is closing weekend in Aspen Highlands – again. It’s their third closing weekend this season.

Wolf Creek re-opened last weekend and Echo just extended their season by a weekend.
