    Where did the summer go? How did this happen? It seems like just yesterday we were finishing off the record-setting 2013-14 Colorado ski season, riding in nothing but shorts and wondering whether Bloody Marys can cure sunburn. Now, the 2014-15 ski season is unoffically underway with the excellent Christy Sports Powder Daze ski and snowboard sale, which begins today and runs through September 2. at 8601 West Cross Drive in Littleton.

    Not that we’re complaining. We’d ski 365 days a year if Mother Nature cooperated. And when you ski as much as we do, new equipment and gear is imperative. With up to 70% off all gear and apparel, Powder Daze is a great opportunity for Coloradans to load up on the very best brands in the winter sports industry without breaking the bank.
