Citizens of Colorado Ski Country,
Election Day is the most important day of the year, even more so than Opening Day or a big powder day. Part of the core mission of Colorado Ski Country USA is to advocate for the ski industry at all levels of government, and when all of Colorado’s ski resorts speak with one voice, they are heard loud and clear.
However, we don’t have a magic wand. Whether it’s workingfor a better transportation system and sensible water laws, or strengthening the public-private partnership with the US Forest Service that deliversColorado’s world-classskiing and snowboarding, our voice is magnified 100 times over when the 500,000 skiers and snowboarders in Colorado are engaged on these and other important issues. The single easiest and most effective way to engage is to turn in your ballot.
If you live in Colorado and are eligible to vote, but haven’t turned in your ballot yet or never received one in the mail, it’s not too late. See here for a list of voting service centers near you; they’re open until 7:00 this evening. You can even register and vote on the same day if you’re new to Colorado (we’d suggest arriving a bit early if that’s the case).
Anyone can complain about politics and the government, but voting is the only sure way to have your voice heard by those in positions of power. The more skiers and snowboarders are engaged in our democratic process, the better our Colorado skiing and snowboarding experience will be in the long run. It’s that simple.
