Election Day is the most important day of the year, even more so than Opening Day or a big powder day. Part of the core mission of Colorado Ski Country USA is to advocate for the ski industry at all levels of government, and when all of Colorado’s ski resorts speak with one voice, they are heard loud and clear.

Whether you have a season pass to one of Colorado’s ski resorts or not, buying one or more multi-day ski passes is a great way to add some diversity to your skiing and snowboarding experience this winter. Buying earlier is always better, but If you still haven’t purchased a multi-day pass to a Colorado Ski Country member resort, you’re in luck. The 2014 Colorado Ski & Snowboard Expo is coming to Denver soon (11/7 – 11/9 at the Colorado Convention Center) and will be your last best chance to save big on lift access this season.
Here are some of the pass products that will be on sale at the Expo: Continue Reading
Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, there were a lot of important men in professional skier Zack Giffin’s life. There was his father, whom he describes as “a wild inventor,” a man who was “constantly developing new ideas” and marketing them. There was his grandfather, who loved to drive in the mountains. “We lived about 40 minutes from Eldora,” explains Zack. “And my grandfather would take me skiing because he wanted an excuse to drive.” Continue Reading
Loveland Ski Area will open for the 2014-2015 season on Saturday, November 1.
“We had to wait out a few unseasonably warm weeks, but everyone’s patience will be rewarded on Saturday,” said Rob Goodell, director of business operations. “We are still putting the finishing touches on the base area, but our snowmaking team has done a tremendous job on the upper portion of the mountain and we are proud to offer our guests the exceptional early season conditions they have come to expect at Loveland.”
Chair 1 will run from 8:30am until 4:00pm on Saturday and will provide skiers and riders with access to one top-to-bottom run covered from tree-to-tree with an 18 inch base. The trails Catwalk, Mambo and Home Run make up this Opening Day run which is over a mile long and nearly 1,000 vertical feet.
Loveland Ski Area opened on October 17 last season.
Loveland Ski Area will be open seven days a week until Closing Day in early May. Lift operating hours are 9:00am until 4:00pm on weekdays and 8:30am until 4:00pm on weekends and designated holidays. Early season lift tickets are $51 for adults and $25 for children ages 6-14.
Steamboat’s snowmaking crews fired up the snowmaking system early this morning to begin adding to the natural snow Mother Nature has delivered this month in anticipation of Opening Day, Wednesday, November 26, 2014.
“It’s always exciting when snow covers the mountain especially this early in the season and we crank up our snow guns for the first time,” said Doug Allen, vice president of mountain operations for the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “With several snow storms already in October and a solid start to snowmaking today, the early season is looking very promising.” Continue Reading
Last spring break I spent two great days with my boys – not a guy’s weekend with friends from college — but with my two high school age sons. Mom was skiing elsewhere (she claims it was a “meeting”), so off to Aspen Snowmass we went. En route, one boy worked the smartphone, finding the best lodging deal in town, while the other did the driving. Continue Reading
No one ever said bringing a baby on a ski vacation was easy—until now. OK, maybe “easy” overstates it a bit. Babies, by definition, are demanding (nothing that requires frequent feedings throughout the night, diapers, and a lot of time being held is easy), but they’re also small, lightweight, and easy to bring new places. Even though you might be feeling shell-shocked by your little bundle’s arrival in your world, life as you know it is not over, which means this winter you can still ski or ride, even with that little infant.
