    Although we’re nearing the end of the 2014-15 ski and snowboard season, it’s still important to remember the responsibilities each of as skiers and riders has while enjoying a day on the slopes at our favorite mountain resorts.

    Recognizing that skiers must look after their own safety (and that of those around them), the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) developed the “Your Responsibility Code” in 1966 as a way to educate individuals about best practices for safe participation in alpine snow sports. Throughout the years, the list has evolved to include snowboard and chairlift safety. Following these simple guidelines will help to ensure your safety, and the safety of others while visiting alpine resorts. Continue Reading

    Ahhh…springtime in the Rockies! We love all the seasons here in Colorado Ski Country, but spring marks that special time of renewal, rebirth, and reawakening. Yet as splendid and striking as it is, it can also be a time of sheer agony for many outdoor enthusiasts.

    On the slopes, the snow remains soft and inviting under blue bird skies. The roads are clearing of snow and ice, and mountain trails are drying out and leading the way to sublime alpine splendor. Meanwhile the golf course greens are coming out of their winter slumber, and in the rivers, the fish are hungry and rising.

    And so goes the painstaking deliberation: What will it be today, my skis, my clubs, my hiking boots, or my fly rod? Indeed, the thawing of the winter season creates an insatiable menu of options for how to spend ones time. Or does it? Continue Reading

  • Safety Sunday: The Importance of Sunblock for Skiers and Snowboarders

    Sun Safety – Apply and Re-apply

    The Colorado high country enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year, so sun protection is important. The increased mountain elevations mean you’re closer to the sun, and therefore your skin is exposed to more radiation. Plus, the sun’s reflection off of fresh white snow is more powerful than you might think, and ultraviolet rays can penetrate clouds even on overcast days. To ensure you and your family and friends have a fun and safe day on the slopes, remember these sun safety tips.

    • Apply generous amounts of SPF 30+ sunscreen on exposed skin every two hours. Don’t forget your ears!
    • Wear goggles or sunglasses with 100 percent UV protection.
    • Wear pants, long sleeves, and gloves, even on warm days.

    What to look for in sunblock:

    • SPF 30 or higher
    • Broad Spectrum
    • Zinc Oxide, titanium dioxide or both
