On the catwalk, with and without snow
I could be steppin’ out of line here, but I see myself buckling my ski boots instead of pacing in front of the TV on Sunday.Like a guy watching an episode of “A Wedding Story” on TLC, I’ve lost interest in football’s biggest day of the year. I’m still mourning that I don’t get to see the Indianapolis Colts’ Super Bowl debut performance this year.I have a little trouble letting things go.Besides, I have yet to use a day of my Classic Pass at Snowmass and the guilt of not making use of hard-earned money spent is killing me.Ski bum I ain’t.The Sunlight deck this year has been too much of a draw, not to mention the chance to hang out in the Prosence family’s hot tub on the way down Four Mile. There’s nothing better than soaking sore muscles under a star-filled sky.TodayIt’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: Sunlight Mountain Resort’s Winter Music Series continues with acoustic singer-songwriter Bruce Neuman for aprs ski entertainment at the Last Turn Lounge. Off the Grid plays Saturday at the Sunlight Inn. Information: 945-7491This is why I’d kick it up here: I’m probably better at aprs ski than the alpine kind, and the social scene after an afternoon on the slopes doesn’t get any better than Sunlight. The people are fun, the beer is cold, the coffee with Kahlua is hot, and the music is entertaining. I quoted New Castlite Frank Welsh as saying, “Two beers, two runs,” on opening day at Sunlight. After this season, I catch what you’re throwing at me, Frank.SaturdayIt’s happening in Carbondale to boot: Penny Lane Consignment hosts a ladies-only Valentine’s Fashion Show at 5 p.m. Saturday. Models will display lingerie from Penny Lane and Night & Dance in Glenwood Springs for all ages – including yoga wear and loungewear – for Valentine’s Day. Advance or at-the-door tickets are $10, and seating is limited. Information: 963-8778This is why I’d kick it up here: I will make my modeling debut at the fashion show. Yes, you heard me right. We won’t count that time my friend Shelley and I entered a lingerie contest on Spring Break and were booed off stage for not giving in to the “skin to win” chant. That’ll boost a college girl’s ego. Luckily the show is ladies-only, so I don’t expect any booing from the audience hopefully. But I’ve heard one of the pieces to be modeled is a French maid’s outfit. Talk about skin to win. Maybe the spray-on tan will hide my red face. Believe it or not, I do embarrass easily. The show should be a fun Girls’ Day Out, and a percentage of the sales will benefit a soon-to-be-named women’s charity. Plus, the lingerie will be a sweet surprise for all those unsuspecting boyfriends and husbands on Valentine’s Day especially the little French maid number. Starting Tuesday: The “Gilman Project” features photography by Scot Gerdes and Greg Dahlgren at the Colorado Mountain College gallery, Ninth Street and Grand Avenue, downtown Glenwood Springs. The show runs through March 16. Information: 947-8367 Thursday: Fin’s Grille and Raw Bar in Glenwood is hosting the Fin’s First Anniversary Celebration with Bruce & Dave and the Yuka Huka. Enjoy music, prizes, food and fun. Information: 945-4771

Courtney Hassell says she could have been completely disillusioned with schools and education, and in many ways she was, after an experience three years ago at Glenwood Springs High School.
