I’d like to thank Ski Sunlight and the Glenwood Springs Mall for hosting this year’s treasure hunt. My son and I found it on Columbine under three evergreens, for those of you who were looking. The prize was a very generous $500, plus a season pass.

For me, Ski Sunlight is one of the best things about living in Glenwood Springs. It has always been an affordable and great way to spend time together as a family and with other people in the community. I am entirely grateful my kids have grown up on that mountain.

I encourage families to start their kids skiing young, even if they don’t ski themselves. I’m convinced the confidence and exuberance found in skiing spills over into every area of life. I’m sure it’s one of the best things I ever did for my kids, and I know they both agree.

Thanks again to the Glenwood Springs Mall and Ski Sunlight.
