The answer to one of summer's biggest questions has finally been answered. For months, we've been listening to rumors and speculation about what will become of the 2020-2021 ski season. With last season being cut short, many of us are dreaming of the day we can be back on the mountain to immerse ourselves in winter in the best possible way- on our skis or board with family, friends, or even solo.

Keystone Resort opens a bit earlier for passholders on Nov 6. Skiers without season passes will be able to ski starting Dec 7 by reservation only. In a letter from Vail Resorts CEO, Rob Katz, he states, "Given how fluid…

Hiking is a popular Summit County activity for both visitors and local alike. Lower elevation hikes can also be done in the winter time with a pair of snowshoes and/or waterproof hiking boots.

On the weekends or busiest summer days, parking can sometimes be hard to come by and hikers may find themselves one of hundreds making their way up at these beloved sites.

Our town goes from winter white to an explosion of color. All day long in the summer, we see visitors posing with and snapping pics of the flowers growing from the earth, in baskets and planters. Maybe you’d like to plant some of your own and have wondered what types do best in our climate and where to start.
Adding flowers to the landscape of your home can help create a defensible space. Because plant choice and maintenance are critical in this regard, Colorado State University (CSU) has published a fact…
