Happy Halloween…be aware

Be careful of all the little trick-or-treaters wandering through the dark neighborhoods this Thursday, October 31. They’ll start with a march down Elk Avenue at 4:30 from First Street and end up at the Old Rock Library and then hit the local neighborhoods throughout the valley so be aware.

Happy ski season

Word is that Monarch Mountain will be opening Friday through Sunday starting November 1, as conditions allow, making this its earliest opening since 1969. Monarch is one of the few remaining Colorado ski areas that does not have any snowmaking operations. With a base elevation of 10,790 feet, they see an abundance of all-natural snow throughout the ski season, averaging second only to Wolf Creek in Colorado. And that snow came this week so the lifts will start turning this weekend from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
