With daily lift tickets averaging a mere $45, it’s well worth the visit and will reward adventurous skiers with plenty of untracked snow on powder days.

Powder, paranormal and more: The underrated adventure sports mecca of Glenwood Springs

By Tom Winter
There were ghosts, they told us. Strange bumps and sounds in the night. Lights that turned on and off for no apparent reason. Doors that slammed shut, suddenly and without warning. Things that kept you up at night. We thought about it and then climbed into the deep softness of our bed.

Rewear, reuse, recycle

With textile waste steadily climbing in the U.S., solutions aimed at diverting used clothing from landfills are becoming crucial

By Steven Grossman
On average, the U.S. generates about 25 billion pounds of textiles each year — 85 percent of which end up in landfills, according to the nonprofit Council for Textile Recycling. With post-consumer textile waste accounting for more than 5 percent of all municipal solid waste generated in the U.S. each year, the need for convenient solutions to a complex problem are becoming crucial.

The magic of Kesem

CU Boulder students lead the second year of Camp Kesem, a summer program that supports children through a parent’s cancer

By Caitlin Rockett
When Al Visconti was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in 2004, his son was only 4 weeks old. Intense chemotherapy followed, as well as debates about whether the affected leg would need to be amputated. Surgery saved the leg, but the chemo continued. For nine months, Vicsonti would come home from the doctor connected to a pump that delivered drugs for five days straight. He endured this every three weeks for the entire nine months.

By Matt Cortina
Forty-six years ago, a group of Denver high school students and Chicano supporters participated in a walkout. Some were beaten by police and arrested. They were protesting the fact that a history teacher was teaching them a washed-over, ethnocentric version of history.

news briefs

New rules released for hydraulic fracturing on public and tribal lands by the U.S. Department of the Interior called for increased transparency on chemicals used by posting them to the website FracFocus within 30 days of completing operations, “validation of well integrity and strong cement barriers between the wellbore and water zones through which the wellbore passes”; “higher standards for interim storage of recovered waste fluids from hydraulic fracturing to mitigate risks to air, water and wildlife”; and “measures to lower the risks of crosswell contamination with chemicals and fluids used in the fracturing operation.”

LETTERS

As is always the case, Mr. Danish starts his arguments with his own POV and then searches for information to support it. This is the failure of lazy narrow-minded ideologues. They don’t wish to engage complex issues with as many “facts” as possible. They find a nugget of information to support their theory and disregard anything that competes with it.

Hardhats, hippies and hawks

By Dave Anderson
According to a widespread urban legend, the Vietnam anti-war movement was mostly composed of privileged college kids and the war was most enthusiastically supported by blue collar workers. That’s the story perpetuated in countless TV shows, movies, press reports and history textbooks.
