    It’s no secret that the ski industry has a careful eye on the issue of global warming, and a careful eye is probably an understatement. Global warming (or climate change, as it is less dramatically referred to) more than any other issue can have a devastating impact on our business.

    Many Colorado Ski Country USA member resorts have taken the issue of global warming, and enveloped it into tactical solutions with regards to environmentalism, Continue Reading

    on May 27 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on Colorado Ski TV: Now you see it, now you don’t

    Ever since the TV was moved from the entrance vestibule, there is a big void at Colorado Ski Country USA, to say the least. Not just a physical void in that the giant screen which took up a lot of space is now gone, but there is an emotional void too.

    Every time someone came by the office and looked into the window at the screen, it was as if they were looking

    Sadly, the end is in sight. There is less than two weeks left in the 2008-09 Colorado Ski Country USA ski season and as is usually the case, the last resort standing is Arapahoe Basin. This year the resort will go out in style with the 8th Annual Festival of the Brew Pubs where the theme is always tasty turns and tasty beer.

    To officially close out the season, Colorado Ski Country USA always hosts the Annual Meeting. This is the 46th year for the Colorado ski industry event and it is taking place in Boulder, home town of Eldora Mountain Resort, on June 10-11 under the theme of Navigating the Bumps. With less than a month to go the agenda is shaping up to be,well, dare we say, epic. Continue Reading

Arapahoe Basin is the only resort in Colorado open now. But while there are only a few weeks left in A-basin’s season, neighboring Loveland just closed earlier this month. Last week on Loveland’s site they were already counting down the days ’till snowmaking for next season. Continue Reading

  • One Good Re-Opening Deserves Another

    on April 27 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on One Good Re-Opening Deserves Another

    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.

    Another example, last weekend Wolf Creek was closed for the season, and today we’re proud to say that the resort just announced they will re-open this weekend, again! They already re-opened once earlier in April, but sometimes good snow just can’t keep a resort from running. Continue Reading

    This weekend is closing weekend in Aspen Highlands – again. It’s their third closing weekend this season. There seems to be a trend in Colorado Ski Country this year of resorts closing and then re-opening, like they’re teasing us with the sad news of the end of another season and then put us out of our misery with one more weekend only to deny us again. Wolf Creek re-opened last weekend and Echo just extended their season by a weekend.
