Every winter, an average of six people are killed in Colorado due to an avalanche. This season—which is far from over—ten have been killed by avalanches in the state so far, including the two who died over Valentine’s Day weekend near Vail. Avalanches are particularly bad in Colorado this year because the snowpack is weaker than it’s been in almost a decade, due to a snowstorm we got in October that hasn’t bonded well with other layers on top of it.

In strong partnership with our state and county health agencies, we continue to closely monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 in our community.

Over the last 20 years or so, we have observed the deep ideological divide that has evolved in our Country,  driven partly by social media.  Accusations of “fake news”, misogyny, racism, “science denial”, “deplorables”, “selfish bastards”, “libtards”, “baby killers” and other, similar invectives have become routine attacks by one tribe against another. 

Instead, I would argue that the real missing link in our country today is leadership.
