50 years of skiing Colorado

By Elizabeth Miller
Talk to a skier who learned in the ’60s and they’ll tell stories of coaches imported from Europe to teach Americans how to tackle obstacles like moguls — knees together! — and ski edges sharp enough to shred your ski pants.

Winter Scene 2010: Hot styles, cold weather

It’s all about colors and layering
