No snow? No problem! Rail Jam Re-cap.


Pop Quiz: Summer is over, you've got skis or a board that you're itchin' to ride, but Mother Nature is being a...well, she's just not cooperating. What do you do? 

Answer: You do what the folks at Colorado Ski Shop would do! Haul in your own snow (courtesy of Ski Sundown), set-up some rails, and go at it! 

And what could be better than massive piles of fresh snow, multiple features to choose from, and no ski patrol to throw off your groove? Oh yeah, free give-aways at the end of the rail jam, just for showing up. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Check out the pics below, and don't forget to check out this video of the event as well.

For Autumn Lovers - The New England Fall Experience.

Being a die-hard summer girl, I don't always celebrate the change to the colder seasons. I wholeheartedly mourn the death of summer's warmth and sunshine. But unlike me, most people cannot wait for the arrival of Autumn, and all the fun and exciting things that come with it.

Like taking long strolls, hand in hand, in the cool, brisk air. Down winding trails through trees ablaze in shades of gold, yellow, red, orange and burgundy. With the soft, smokey-warm scent of wood fires and burning leaves flowing in the breeze...


 Then there's apple picking and pumpkin picking, corn mazes, and hay rides.

 Let's not forget the yummy part of fall - Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Hot Cocoa...Personally, I cannot wait to try this recipe for Apple Cider Cups! Looks delicious!

There's also all the cute clothes and accessories, like these, and these. Hey girls, did you know there's more than one way to tie a scarf? Check it out here. No more boring knots for me!

So tell me, what's your favorite part of Autumn?
