    And so it begins, the count down ’till ski season. The summer of 2009 is dead to us. Here at Colorado Ski Country USA, we feel like the New Year started the day after Labor Day, because from now on it’s full speed ahead to Opening Day, but more on that later.

  • The End is Near, and We’re OK with That

    on August 31 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on The End is Near, and We’re OK with That

    The end is near and there’s nothing we can do about it. For those not yet convinced here are the signs: season pass sales have begun at Colorado Ski Country resorts, sales on last season’s equipment are popping up, ski magazines have come out with their 2009-10 gear reviews, night time temperatures are dipping below 55 degrees, and even lower in the high country, and this weekend is Labor Day, the official unofficial end of summer.

    Copper Country Festival at Copper MountainAs is customary in Colorado Ski Country, we go out in style, and this year’s end of summer is no different. Resorts everywhere are hosting festivals, concerts and competitions. The question is though, are they celebrating the end of summer or the beginning of winter? Either way, there is a lot happening in Ski Country.

  • Proud to be a Card Carrying Member

    on August 20 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off on Proud to be a Card Carrying Member

    Hiking at Arapahoe Basin

    We’ve had a few questions about the GEMS card and just announced that the 2009-10 Colorado GEMS card is now for sale, and have already sold a handful of them. They go for $10 each and the money collected from sales of the card goes right back into the GEMS program. The GEMS is its own unique little program within the Colorado Ski Country USA organization and the GEMS resorts have a somewhat cultish following.

    SunlightMaybe you’ve caught glimpses of them in the lift lines. Or perhaps you used one once and remember being surprised at feeling the weight of it around your neck. People always ask about it when they see one, “is that one of those passes that works at all the Colorado resorts?” And then they want to touch it and get a close up look at it.

    While they are available each year, there are limited numbers of them, and this year is no exception. Colorado Ski Country USA recently announced that the exclusive Colorado Ski Country Gold Pass is available for the 2009-10 ski season. The transferable pass, good for unlimited skiing and riding at member resorts, can be purchased for $2,750. Continue Reading

    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
