    I Miss Colorado Skiing!

    I grew up in Cortez (southwest Colorado) and learned to ski at Purgatory near Durango. I live elsewhere now, and I wish every day that I was back in my Colorado mountains!

    Every Winter As a Kid

    I used to go skiing in Colorado every winter as a kid. Loved it. Then I went college and couldn't afford it. After I got to where I could afford it I had a wife and child. She hates skiing and he was too young. So, my skiing days seem to have gone away (for now).

    Ski Bum

    I was a ski bum for years, but eventually gave up that lifestyle for a career. Stupid me. Once I got older I started earning enough for real ski vacations again and have re-found my love of skiing. Steamboat, Vail, Breck, Crested Butte, A Basin - I love them all. Nothing...
