This weekend in Colorado, Copper, Keystone and Wolf Creek open for the season. And as the resorts open, the season also begins with the annual Colorado Ski and Snow Expo at the Convention Center. This year’s event opens at noon today and runs through Sunday night.
Vendors from nearly every resort in the state will be there, as well as a retail area for Colorado Ski and Golf. Entertainment includes demos from the Spectacular Flying Aces Team of Olympic, national and international freestyle skiing and trampoline champions doing impressive airborne maneuvers.
And there will be a drop-off area with usable items getting cleaned up and sent to a charity, and unusable items will be recycled into new products.
Cost is $12 for adults ($2 off coupon online); age 12 and younger are free. Schedule: noon-10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.
