Colorado Snow (also known as cosnow, pronounced “co-snow”, it rhymes!) has set out to become the ultimate resource for Colorado skiers, snowboarders and everyone else who enjoys winter snow and summer mountains (winter snow brings summer wildflowers!).
Our goal is to cover and write about the following:
- Resort news and events
- Weather reports
- Traffic and other transportation
- Gear including reviews
- Event updates, calendar and coverage
- Seasonal information to help even the most advanced visitors
- Trail guides for the less-explored areas
Colorado Snow Blog was founded in fall of 2006 by Devin Reams and has since been renamed to Colorado Snow (and shortened to “cosnow”). The style has remained largely the same since 2006 (black text on white, dark blue) and the official logo was commissioned and created by Wet Frog Studios based loosely on Devin’s original concept.
If you’d like to learn more about why we do this, what our strategy is, how we make money (hint: we don’t, really) and more, please read this Q&A around monetizing Colorado Snow.
If you’d like regular updates of everything we post via email, RSS, Twitter or Facebook please subscribe.
Drop us a line if you have a story idea or something you’d like to share.
You can find Colorado Snow in a few other places online to get updates:
Our primary writer, editor, researcher and “social media expert” is Devin Reams.
Some of the best articles are provided by Devin’s best friend and wife, Rachel.
Occasional guest posts are included from state resorts, public relations individuals, and local skiers and snowboarders. If you’d like to contribute or submit a story for consideration, please contact us.
