Summit Up 6-7-10: Where skiing in a swimsuit is our favorite thing to do

Summit Daily News/Caitlin RowDillon local Steve Delaney prays for a spectacular 2010-11 ski season at A-Basin's closing day Sunday. The beach was boomin' as high temps ushered out the season.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column feeling the burn, as in sunburn.

It’s a hot June so far in Summit County, and we want to warn everyone – locals and visitors alike – that at almost 10,000 feet, the sun is strong. Don’t forget your sunblock when you’re enjoying all the fun activities the Summit has to offer. And boy, is it bumpin’ in the county with bikers, hikers, climbers and sailors.


We also have a plea from Animal Rescue of the Rockies to help two nice, old dogs find a forever home.

Two senior shelter dogs – Rascal and Sean – are desperately seeking a new home because their papa had to be put in a nursing home. They then got dumped off at a “kill” shelter. They are both 10 years old, and they are not adapting to shelter life easily as you can probably imagine. Going from a home to a concrete kennel is extremely hard on older dogs; they seem very sad and confused, and it is just breaking our hearts. We don’t want to see them have to live out the rest of their days in a shelter.

Rascal is a Pomeranian and Shaun is a rat terrier. Do you have a place in your heart and home that these poor old guys are longing for, even to foster? They may not have much time left, but they would give you a lifetime of love and eternal gratitude for giving them a soft, warm bed to sleep on and a chance to nap in the sun for their golden years. We would make sure that they were up to date on all their vaccines and neutered. They need to stay together!

If you are at all interested and able to help these poor pups, please reply to


We’re out, walking our dog.
