    The 2014 -2015 winter ski season is officially underway in Colorado. This morning Arapahoe Basin kicked the season off with the opening of the Black Mountain Express chairlift and the High Noon trail. Here is more on todays condtions from A-Basin’s CEO, Al, took a run yesterday before the official opening.
    “I went for a run this afternoon [Oct. 16th, 2014] just to make sure everything was ready for the opening. It was so good I stayed out and took a few extra laps. Either my boots shrunk or my feet got a little fatter over the summer. Our staff is putting the finishing touches on everything. The lift crew is training and setting up ramps and signs. The Ski Patrol is doing their thing. There is a lot of vacuuming going on around here. I am off to The 6th Alley for a “trial run” on their products and services. Friday will be a very good day. You know, this ski thing is a lot of fun.” – Al’s Blog

    I'm dropping Andrew off at IAD this afternoon for a flight to Denver. He will be touring a couple of schools with his cousins and my brother. Boy, would I love it if he goes to college in CO :)

    Co. School of Mines, in Golden (his cousin graduated MCL and her fiancé is finishing up his Masters there in December), and CO State in Ft. Collins, where his other cousin is a Biology Asst. Prof. It will be good for him to tour these schools with them (and no hovering Mom around)

    According to many sources, one of the very best engineering schools in the US. Even NPR did a big story on it last week. It's a fantastic school. All the recent publicity will make it harder to get into though!
