Summit up

Good morning and welcome to

Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that can’t explain why we feel like gambling.

Does anybody else get these urges? It’s not that we feel lucky necessarily (well, no more than usual, which is pretty lucky,

considering our job). And it’s not that we have any sort of addiction. Not that we know of, anyway. But what’s one more, right?

No, there’s just

something about risk and strategy and watching the swings of fortune play out on people’s faces. We

suppose we could wander on down to Central City, but maybe we’ll just sit around here and wager.

Betcha $5 you’ve already stopped reading.

Maybe we’ll let you all wager. Howzabout a little triple trouble: Send us your guesses on who’ll be the first local ski area to open and on what day with what snow base (in inches, thank you). We’ll figure out some sort of prize for whomever’s closest.


Oh, the Fridays we have seen. You know what to do:, fax at (970) 668-0755 or tell us you don’t know on the voicemail at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237.

We’re out casting lots …
