As the winter season comes to a close the tradition of celebrating spring skiing and riding continues with Sunsation at Copper Mountain. The two-day festival includes live music, off-the-wall competitions and plenty of great conditions and sunshine to go around.
Skiers and riders can now get four of the state’s marquee mountains with the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus, on sale now for the 2013-14 season. The pass includes Copper Mountain, Steamboat, Winter Park, and for the first time, Monarch Mountain for a total of 9,308 acres and a combined total of 109 feet of snow each year.
Copper Mountain will once again embrace its famous Sunsation festival during closing weekend, April 13-14, and have released the names of those performing. This weekend-long celebration headlined by musical acts Matt and Kim and Ozomatli will also include pond skimming competitions, adventure races, and plenty of sunshine.

Ski season’s in full swing in Colorado Ski Country USA. Yes, we had a slow start, but it’s really turning around; every single one of our resorts and ski areas got dumped on at some point over the past week. That’s huge! In my neck of the wods, it loked like it was snowing potato chips at one point. And while it’s NOT Colorado’s first snow, I think that the calming melodies of the good Hank Williams Sr. sum this up:
And while there’s been plenty of snow falling, there’s been something else falling on the slopes in Colorado: us. Falling is part of skiing, and while the twitter-verse and face-spaces are full of photos of all the glorious powder falling in Colorado, I thought I’d change it up a bit with some photos of crashes. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: Augerfest, February 2013. Enjoy!

When we arrived back at our condo after a fun day on Winter Park’s slopes, I stopped and marveled. Our front entryway looked like a bomb had gone off and the carnage was an onslaught of gloves, boots, helmets and jackets.
