Saturday was the last day of skiing for me this season as I forced myself to get as many bump runs in at A-Basin as I could. Thanks to encouragement from my skiing partner, Chris Rain, we fought through the hot spring day and partiers at the beach to squeeze in a few laps on Pallavicini as well as some steeps in the Montezuma Bowl. For the first time in my life I am looking forward to the end of the winter season. I had no idea how long and cold the winters are in Grand County, though I did …
The Colorado Legislature ended the first regular session of the Sixty-ninth General Assembly on May 8, with a number of historic bills being passed through the Democratic controlled House and Senate. One bill regulates the sale of recreational marijuana to people over the age of 21, which was voted into the Colorado Constitution by voters in November.

Representatives of Grand County sponsored bills that extended income-tax incentives for homeowners who complete wildfire mitigation work on …
Questions remain on Byers Peak project To the Editor: I am still not clear on some of the issues involving the annexation of Byers Peak Ranch.

Personally, I’m against the current proposal, but I’m willing to hear the developer out regarding municipal water, storage reservoirs, unsightly gravel pits, and the possible community-wide benefits of annexation. But there is one aspect of the plan — largely overlooked in this contentious debate — that is absolutely absurd, namely the idea that Fraser somehow needs a newer, better “downtown.” For more than a century, through booms and busts, the town of Fraser has consisted of a downtown core where people shopped for what they needed. …
Do not let April’s powder skiing and late-season snow shoveling deceive you. Western Colorado is still in the grip of a drought and the reservoirs in Grand County (like Granby and Wolford Mountain) still have big holes to fill after last year’s near-record dry year. Storing and moving water are two of the main solutions to enhance the environmental health of rivers and streams and improve water quality and quantity for municipal and other uses. A panel of key water leaders that negotiate these and other solutions will discuss and respond to questions about the progress of the provisions of …
