It was a fun day up in Summit County. It’s early season so there’s no traffic, Dillon seems still quieter than usual and the lifties won’t let you on until 9 AM. We used our first day as a dry run to work out all the kinks: adding the ski rack on the roof, making […]

We’re hoping to see much more very soon. In just a few weeks Loveland and Arapahoe Basin will likely begin making snow […]
Before heading up for the first time, I always recommend waxing your skis or board. Surprisingly, most people I talk to don’t do any waxing despite it being a quick 30 minute ordeal. Waxing is important because it adds a layer of protection between the ski surface and the snow. Plus, if you don’t wax your skis you’ll see an amazing improvement in speed and performance next time you head out.
