    When your motto is “the most snow in Colorado” – and you have the numbers to back it up – you don’t want to extend the season unless you can offer the deep powder skiers and snowboarders expect.

    Well, powderhounds, get thee to Wolf Creek Ski Area this weekend because the southern Colorado resort is reopening for what is expected to be a major snowstorm. We’re talking 2 to 3 feet of snow. Continue Reading

    I just got back from an eight day vacation to Alaska where I planned to shred some of the steepest, most challenging lines of my life in the Chugach range. I would be delivered to the tops of these lines via helicopter, follow a guide down, past crevasses and bergschrund, and then get picked up and whisked back to the top.

    It was going to be epic. This was a once-in-a-lifetime heli-skiing trip, planned and budgeted for in my fortieth year. It was a gift to myself and a girl’s getaway; I went with my good friend Maggie, who also turned forty this year and who was my roommate in Jackson Hole about 15 years ago.

    And then climate change happened. At least that’s my explanation for the record rainfall that was followed by record high temperatures. This combination created extreme avalanche conditions so dire that we could not ski. It simply was too dangerous. Continue Reading

    This blog post comes to CSCUSA from Amber Johnson, editor of MileHighMamas.

    I’ll admit it: I wasn’t a fan of Spring Skiing until recently. I had previously viewed it as a hot, slushy mess but at the end of last season, I looked at the bluebird sky, basked in the balmy temperatures, sailed down the mountain in my t-shirt (sorry, no bikinis here) and thought, “How have I missed out on this all these years?
