Day two and plenty of blue (skies)! This morning I decided to make my way over to the Vasquez Ridge Territory and see how much snow it’s received. I headed up Gemini Express again and worked my way back using Prospector Express and then skiing past Olympia to get to the territory. That’s a nice […]

My name is Devin Reams and I founded this site to provide a useful news and review resource for Colorado skiers and snowboarders (and mountain enthusiasts).
I've been skiing since I was a little kid (we moved out here when I was five years old) and I plan to ski for years beyond that. Although cosnow is not my full-time job it is my full-time winter hobby. I've been an "Epic Local" passholder since 2006 (when it was called a "Colorado Pass" or "Five Mountain Pass"). My favorite resorts are Beaver Creek and Breckenridge.
My first day back on the slopes! We decided not to ski during the early season since we were still working on getting a little one-year-old comfortable with the cold. It turns out wearing gloves is not a natural or wonderful thing to a baby. Since the gondola at Winter Park’s base is not yet […]
We just got introduced to a great locally manufactured backpack from Boulder Pack Co. Its a great size, folds into a small pouch, has plenty of pockets in addition to the main one, room for two water bottles on the sides, and even comes with a carabiner to attach other accessories. Now we’ve owned our […]
We’ve been enjoying the (melted) snow this summer by taking our paddleboards out on the nearby pond. I have some big ratchet straps to store them up in the garage but they’re a bit much for simply throwing a board on the car roof and driving down the road… Recently Klik Belts offered to let […]
Another snowy weekday in Winter Park! Both Rachel and I decided to pause work and take some afternoon laps. We packed up the kiddo and headed to Winter Park after lunch on Thursday and had a fluffy afternoon all to ourselves. It started snowing that morning so by waiting until later in the day we […]
The newly introduced Alterra Mountain Company has announced their signature season pass for skiers and snowboarders Alterra Mountain Company introduced itself and its name to the world on January 11, 2018. Some simply think of Alterra simply as “new Intrawest” but its way more than that: its the joint venture of affiliates of KSL Capital […]
Another weekday powder day for this lucky stay-at-home dad meant fresh tracks all morning! This Friday in the mountains started as they usually do: attempting to park at Winter Park’s Bench Lot, finding that I was just about 5 minutes late to getting a spot, then turning around to park in the lower lot and […]
Finally! A true powder day with more than just rocks and grass beneath the fresh stuff! This was the best day I’ve had all season (I know, it’s only my 5th) and I know this day and the days after have been the best for everyone else, too. We finally had a sustainable base, around […]
