    Boulder, CO Man Charged With Theft of 74 Pairs of Skis From Ski Resorts

    I've always thought if I were to be a petty criminal the racks of free skis would be a good target. Have to wonder how many of these guys are roaming around the front range? https://snowbrains.com/boulder-man-theft-74-pairs-skis/

    18-19 Season - How many days so far?

    An all new year another counting of the ski days. I am sure that some have their days from Wolf Creek to add but with A-Basin and Mt. Rose opening on Friday...we should see a flurry of posts. Don't forget to keep track over on Slopesquad too.

    Snow in Colorado!

    Just drove from Glenwood Springs to Denver through a fairly decent snowstorm. Let’s hope this is a good sign for the season.

    Homage to the Fixed-Grip Chair

    It’s tough to do a tribute to an existing thing, a current workhorse. Yes, we can lump fixed-grip chairs together with skinny skis, 8-tracks, my Dad’s ’64 Ford Galaxy, any number of old-tech memories. But while a lot of the things that moved or fueled our past don’t shine as brightly when we...
