It's official. Arapahoe Basin opened up this morning. Ski season has "officially" begun.....Is it a bad omen for the season that the first resort opened on Friday the 13th????

Loveland opens today. (Oct 14) http://www.skiloveland.com/

Yes, that's right John, I'm finally starting to see the upside of the flatlands. Granted, it's still not as good as living in SLC or Denver, but it's a step in the right direction.

ps- as you can imagine, I'm pretty creative with coming up with work reasons as to why we need to have conferences/meetings/etc in Denver/Co Springs/Albuquerque etc. My boss, unfortunately, sees right through my supposed concern for efficiencies and effectiveness ...
