Movin’ straight into it.
It’s opening day!
By the time you read this, you should be in the parking lot, putting on your gear and headed toward the slopes. It’s not a complicated sport. Just obey the laws of gravity with missionary zeal! And don’t forget to grin.

Toys for Tots needs you
Christmas in the Eagle River Valley is a difficult time for many families. Please help out by donating a $10 toy, game or appropriate gift for a child or teen. Cash donations are deposited in a Toys for Tots Toy Fund. Local businesses and organizations are encouraged to involve employees by asking for donations at company parties. You can drop off donations at City Market, Safeway, Columbine Market, the Eagle Pharmacy, all local banks, or any emergency service agency. Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army will make certain that deserving youth in the valley will receive your gifts. For details or more information, call the Salvation Army, any emergency service agency, or Toys for Tots chairman, Nick Frenze at 524-7705.
