Bring on Spring at Copper Mountain

by Colorado Snow Sensei on Mar.21, 2014, under Colorado Skiing, Resorts

Kristen Lummis, Copper Mountain

Kristen Lummis, Copper Mountain

By Kristen Lummis,

My calendar says that spring starts on March 20th. But, I know differently. Spring started on March 9th, at Copper Mountain.

Snow and Sun

As I’m sure you know, it’s been snowing– a lot. In fact, about a foot of fresh snow fell that weekend, from Friday to Saturday, providing amazing mid-winter conditions across Colorado. And then, just as surely as we all had to change our clocks on Sunday morning, we sprang ahead, not just in time, but also in temperature and season. Spring arrived on Sunday, with stunning blue skies, a late rising sun, and, by afternoon, amazing sun-softened conditions. (continue reading…)

Winter Park Resort’s Annual TJV Ski Down for Cancer Returns March 22

by Colorado Snow Sensei on Mar.10, 2014, under Colorado Skiing, Resorts

3-10 WPWhile most know of the Winter Park Professional Ski Patrol’s dedication to helping people, few realize its reach extends so far beyond the slopes of the mountain.  On Saturday, March 22, Winter Park’s Ski Patrol will partner with the Cavett Kids Foundation for the fourth annual TJV Ski Down for Cancer, benefiting the American Cancer Society and Cavett Kids.

Dedicated in honor of Thomas James Veit, a 12-year Winter Park ski patroller who lost his valiant battle with colon cancer in 2011, this year’s TJV Ski Down for Cancer will consist of Winter Park employees and volunteers skiing/riding down lower Hughes at around 5 p.m. to celebrate the lives of those who have been touched by this dreaded disease.  After the Ski Down, a silent auction will be held at Doc’s Roadhouse located at the base of Winter Park.

The event has grown exponentially each year and the hope is to make the fourth installment the best yet.  To make a donation on-line, please visit
