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…)
What better way to celebrate Colorado’s own Denver Broncos playing in Super Bowl XLVIII than to head to the Rocky Mountains, ski all weekend and watch the big game? Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) is selling $48 lift tickets for Saturday, February 1, 2014 to anyone who wears orange on their outside layer, encouraging guests to come to the mountain and be “united in orange” together on the slopes.

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?
