    Keeping Mad Skills Sharp If you’re like me you tend to stay clear of terrain parks, rails, boxes, up downs, table tops, counter tops, desk tops, and the like. And, if you’re like me, you don’t know what half those things are but you appreciate and are amazed by what others can do on them. I mostly stay away because I don’t know what to do with them, could be because I haven’t been to Woodward at Copper.

    Communal Love – Colorado Ski Country USA resorts “heart” the Earth. They make a lot of effort to carry out sustainable business practices and protect the environment in which we ski. But while everyone is getting touchy-feely over Earth Day, let’s not forget that resorts give a lot of love to the mountain communities too, the smaller worlds that they operate in.

    The 40th anniversary of Earth Day is coming up later this month. In Ski Country, we feel that every day is Earth Day as resorts are constantly exploring new ways to support our sports’ most valuable asset. As we all work to continue to be good stewards of the environment, we wanted to let skiers and riders know some of the new environmental programs in place this season and ongoing efforts planned for the future: (photo by Dan Sweeney)

  • Going Out in Style

    on April 12 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on Going Out in Style

    Going Out in Style Closing weekends, while sad in some ways, are really excuses to dress up in outrageous outfits, slide down snow on things other than skis and boards, and party like a rock star. Sure we have to say goodbye to another ski season, and say goodbye to friends and co-workers who leave town for the summer, but thanks to end-of-season festivities the images we have of friends on the last day of the season will last us ’till opening day.

    The Burger Index

    The smell of spring skiing means burgers grilling on the deck of the lodge, mmmm. One way to sum up this season is as the season of value. There was a lot of talk this fall about what sort of value is out there and the hamburger has been served up as a USDA prime example.

    Over the course of the season, we did our own burger value research and are happy to report the results below. (Photo taken at Arapahoe Basin by Casey Day)
