Talk to Your Children About Skiing Safety

Trails Merge

Durango Mountain Resort

by Kristen Lummis,

One of the surprising things about parenting is how much talking it takes.

Kids need guidance, whether you’re talking to toddlers about sharing and nap time, or to teens about sex and alcohol. No parent want to lecture, but each day we seem to do a fair share of it. At every stage of our children’s lives, there are topics that demand discussion.

Skiing safely, and skiing safety, is one of them. (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.

Ski Like a Local at Eldora

by Guest on Feb.10, 2013, under General

This blog comes to CSCUSA from Dan Rabin, local blogger and contributor and Rocky Mountain Reporter for Celebrator Beer News.

When you’re in an unfamiliar city and you want a good meal, your best bet is to put away your guidebook and find out where the locals go. You probably won’t get steered to the fanciest, most expensive, most famous place in town. More likely, you’ll be led to a place where the food is good and good value, and the vibe is friendly and relaxed.

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!

Learn to Ski or Ride Month | No excuses

by Mountain Correspondent on Jan.10, 2013, under General

This is Learn to Ski or Ride Month, but the name can be misleading. It could just as easily be called something else, something like “Snowboarders, learn to ski too” or “Skiers, learn to snowboard”. They could call it “Learn to ski or ride better month”, since it’s a great chance to grab a deal on a lesson and brush up on your skills. But whatever it’s called, it’s a great excuse to get out and hit the slope for the first time, or just in a new way. Here’s why we don’t want to hear any excuses this year for not giving a new sport a try during Learn to Ski or Ride Month… (continue reading…)
