Summit Up 10-9-10

Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s excited about the new white stuff appearing on the tops of the local mountains.

After perhaps the finest September in Summit County history, we can whole-heartedly exclaim that “we

are ready for winter!” Bring on the dumpage. Ullr! Ullr! Ullr! The only bummer as we see it with the current conditions is that it’s kinda a tease.

The mere appearance of any sort of non-rain moisture gets us stoked for the upcoming season and ready to shred.


So, as we write this we’re wondering what everyone in the county is doing this weekend. Heading over to Moab? Going down to the Front Range to scratch that big-city itch ya got. Not us, we’re sticking around the Summit at least through Sunday. After that, we’re planning on making a run down to Broomfield to check out Vermont’s phinest who’s in Colorado for a three-night stand after appearing

as special guests at the Fourmile Fire fundraiser going on tonight. We hope the event is a great success. It was tough to watch a place as wonderful as Fourmile Canyon get destroyed.


From bands to brews. The High Country Conservation Center along with Alpine Earth Center are hosting the second annual Backyard Brew-

Ha-Ha exactly one week from today. The event is sure to be jolly ‘ol time for all who attend. It goes from 3-6 p.m. over at the earth center. It’s a celebration of the art of local homebrew and will feature a grow-your-own hops workshop, tips and recipes from local brewheads as well as tasty, award-winning brews from the Dam Brewery.

We out.
