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.

There’s nothing like watching a little bit of ski racing to get me in the mood again to take to Aspen my dust covered Volkl GS Racetigers out of the garage. I’ve been following the Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria, for the past two weeks and with every race I watched I got excited again about skiing the “real” skis.
It’s Thanksgiving morning, and we thought this would be a good time to have a one-on-one with you, our reader. We, the staff of Colorado Ski Country USA, want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. The Turkey Day Holiday Weekend at Colorado Ski Country is a special time of year for us, just as it is for you.
And since it’s a time to reflect on what we’re all thankful for, we thought we’d take a moment and write an open letter to our fellow ski and ride enthusiasts, our readers of the Club Colorado Blog, those who interact with our Facebook page, Twitter feed, Pinterest, and Tumblr and Flickr accounts. You’re the ones who we see every weekend out on the slopes – shredding pow-pow, hitting the back bowls, meandering down bunny hills. You not only have a shared appreciation for our sport, but a fervent passion for what we all collectively do.

Where do you ski in Colorado? If you’re like many of us, you’ve got a home resort that you return to year after year, week after week and day after day. You love your resort. You know every roller and glade. You know where to farm powder and you’ve sworn never to divulge the locale. You’re plugged into the best season pass deals and you’ve got your favorite spots for lunch, beer and coffee. If you’ve got kids, they’ve grown up skiing at this resort. It’s their second home.
So why would you try some place new?
