In the past, when I’ve written about skiing and riding safety, I received some comments that skiing with me might be “boring” or a “bummer.”
I beg to differ.
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:

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.

Two big things happen at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen each January. The first, as you may have guessed, is the Winter X Games, at Buttermilk through at least 2014. The second is not so obvious, but it’s related to the X Games. It’s the Buttermilk Deluxe private lesson package, also known (at least to me) as “one big screaming deal.”
Like a big present waiting under the tree, Winter Park visitors awoke Christmas morning to the resort’s newest jewel, the Coca-Cola® Tubing Hill, which opens for the 2012/2013 season today.
Colorado’s newest tubing hill features four separate lanes with banked curves ensuring fun for all ages and an enclosed conveyor lift that whisks riders back to the top of the hill for another run. Tickets can be purchased at the Vintage Hotel and are good for a full hour. Just because the ski slopes close for the day doesn’t mean the snow riding has to stop, as the Coca-Cola® Tubing Hill will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
