    My calendar says that spring starts on March 20th. But, I know differently. Spring started on March 9th, at Copper Mountain.

    Snow and Sun

    As I’m sure you know, it’s been snowing– a lot. In fact, about a foot of fresh snow fell that weekend, from Friday to Saturday, providing amazing mid-winter conditions across Colorado. And then, just as surely as we all had to change our clocks on Sunday morning, we sprang ahead, not just in time, but also in temperature and season. Spring arrived on Sunday, with stunning blue skies, a late rising sun, and, by afternoon, amazing sun-softened conditions. Continue Reading

    Today we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado Ski Country with green ski gear and green après-ski beer.

    In addition to being the masters of the English language, ferocious warriors, and above-average rugby players, the Irish retain pagan superstitions that pre-date St. Patrick’s 5th century arrival to the Emerald Isle. We asked our friends out in Ski Country if they had any good luck rituals they’d like to share; here are some of the highlights: Continue Reading

    For skiers and boarders seeking a variety of challenging terrain, Aspen Mountain serves up an enticing menu of bumps, glades and steeps. While the mountain is a haven for the fast and the fearless, those who slow down and look around will discover there’s a lot more going on than first meets the eye. A fun way to learn about the mountain’s high alpine environment is on a snowshoe tour. Tours are offered twice daily throughout ski season. One afternoon during a recent Aspen visit, I swapped my ski boots for snow boots and joined a mountain adventure of a different nature. Continue Reading

    Cat Skiing at Ski Cooper from Colorado Ski Country USA on Vimeo.

    Cat Skiing at Ski CooperTucked away on top of Tennessee Pass, you’ll find a ski resort that packs in big adventure and small town charm. Imagine great snow, close-in parking, affordable lift tickets, and no lift lines.  This is Ski Cooper.

    While there is access to a variety of trails on their two chairlifts (well five if you count the platter, handle tow, and Colorado’s longest Magic Carpet), they have one very awesome trick in their back pocket: CAT SKIING!

    Cat Skiing at Ski Cooper

    The Chicago Ridge Snowcat day trip promises picturesque views and backcountry comfort.  Here, you’ll unpack your skis and boards and launch into open bowls and gladed terrain.  The cozy snowcat drops you at the top of each run, so you can enjoy turn after powdery turn of crowd-free skiing.  Reenergize with a gourmet lunch inside a heated yurt.  This is the way backcountry skiing was meant to be enjoyed.   It’s an adventure that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.
