Colorado Kids Describe the Perfect Ski Day

John Trousdale, Monarch Mountain

By Kristen Lummis, braveskimom.com

What’s a good ski day? While you might know your answers, would your kids say the same thing?

I wanted to know, so recently, I took a completely unscientific, haphazard poll and asked kids what they think makes a good ski day.

I asked kids ranging in age from 5 to 17.

I asked kids who ride, kids who ski, and kids who would rather not do either, but who put up with it because their parents make them. These were kids from across Colorado, some of whom live in ski towns and some who only ski a few times each year.

Here are their answers. (continue reading…)

Picking a Perfect Mountain

by Mountain Correspondent on Mar.19, 2013, under Colorado Skiing, General

Desert Island question: If you had to pick just one mountain, just one spot to ski or board for the rest of time, which one would it be?

It’s a tough question, and thankfully it’s one you can completely ignore because in Colorado, you simply don’t have that problem. Colorado has a mountain for everyone. With tons of resorts and ski areas, there’s something here for everyone – which begs the question: what’s your thing?

Are you a powder-hound? Park-rat? Mogul-gopher? Aprés-aardvark? We tried to cram as much of our glorious state as we could in to a 30-second video. So take a look: see if your thing made the cut:

Didn’t see your thing here? Then hop on our facebook page or tweet us (@ColoradoSkiUSA) and let us know. We’ll make sure your favorite thing to do in Colorado Ski Country shows up in the next video.

Spring at Snowmass: Ski Late on Friday, Stay for the Weekend

by Guest on Mar.09, 2013, under General

This blog comes to Colorado Ski Country from Kristen Lummis, creator of BraveSkiMom.com.

For the past eleven years, the last day of the work week meant Bud Light Big Air Fridays at Snowmass. This competition invites all comers to show their stease on the 40-foot jump on Upper Fanny Hill. It’s an impressive display of progressive insanity and flight. And while Big Air Friday still welcomes in the weekend at Snowmass, it’s no longer the only game in town.

Family skiing at Monarch is as easy as watching butterflies

by Colorado Snow Sensei on Feb.24, 2013, under General

photo 3 (4)
We ski at Monarch at least once a season. It’s perfect for family ski getaways, and I’m not just saying that I swear. We love skiing at Monarch because it’s affordable, easy to get to, easy to get around the mountain, they have a nice variety of terrain, good infrastructure, it’s easy to get around the town, and their mascot is the butterfly, and how can you not like butterflies?

Winter Park Resort: Why “Colorado’s Favorite” Is Now One of Mine

by Guest on Jan.17, 2013, under General

This blog comes to Colorado Ski Country from Amber Johnson, editor of Mile High Mamas.

Skiing Winter Park has been a long time and coming—10 years to be exact. My husband donned his first set of skis as an 11-year-old at Winter Park’s slopes and since moving to Colorado it has been on my bucket list.

Ski day!
