It's been a good month in Colorado Ski Country. We've had some bouts of snow and some bouts of beautiful Colorado sunshine. The upcoming pattern is definitely going to be a beneficial storm for Colorado. Some areas may be measuring feet of snow by the end of the month! 

The drought in Colorado still persists so the incoming moisture is desperately needed. What the incoming storm looks like is a constant stream of moisture and energy flowing in from the southwest. So, naturally, the southwest mountains (like Telluride and Purgatory) should fair rather well by the end of the storm cycle.

“Unprecedented times.” We’ve been hearing those two words a lot. Turns out, times without precedence aren’t great for mental health. Nearly all of my friends and family that I’ve talked to, even the ones who I can rely on for optimism, have been feeling down in the dumps recently. A long hot summer full of fires and social unrest, a fall filled with a tumultuous election and a winter still plagued by COVID-19 have negatively affected many people’s mental health.

One thing helping many of us ease our mental health is

2020 is nearly over (thank Ullr!) and the hopes are high for 2021. While the NYE scene that many people are used to won’t be a thing this year, it’s still possible to ring in the New Year the right way. By starting the New Year with an early morning ski day, we think your 2021 will be great—at least for the day.

Here are the Top 4 reasons to ski on New Year’s Day.

  1. Fewer People

Despite fewer massive parties this New Year’s Eve, it still won’t be surprising if everyone decides to sleep in on January 1. After staying up past midnight to ring in the New

The G5 run in the Highland Bowl is officially being renamed Hines-Sight​ in honor of former Highlands Ski Area owner and longtime community member, Gerald Hines. Hines left an imprint on the mountain and developed the Highland's base village. 

Hines was instrumental in guiding and supporting the investment in Highlands that began in the early 1990’s. Hines acquired Highlands from Harvard University which received the ski resort as a donation from the founder Whip Jones.  Hines supported the expansions into Deep Temerity and the Highland Bowl which delights skiers and snowboarders today. Hines merged the ski areas with Aspen Skiing Company in 1993 and focused on developing the base area.  

The legacy of Gerald Hines, who was passionate about skiing
