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.
Telluride’s Opening Day might be tomorrow, but the resort is turning lifts today as part of its Thanksgiving tradition to give back to the community. The pre-Opening Day fun allows guests to ski early, and all proceeds benefit the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club’s financial aid assistance program. This program is designed for local children from the school district who need help to participate in skiing and snowboarding. Here’s a first look at the resort’s lifts, courtesy of Telluride Tom. Those beaming faces say it all.
