I imagine people have noticed the stripe - it is the outline of Mt CB. A great way to showcase our little town.

Way nicer than DePan's

Little Gunnison Fire influence in there.

New?

Why a red one?

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:

It is very important that everyone uses extreme caution when shoveling their roofs. The snow is very heavy and with the right factors in play, can lead to severe harm or death. These urban avalanches are no joke as we have seen. We have had 3 events and 4 patients because of these in the last week.

2 of those events happened in the last 24 hours in which we are greatly saddened to say 1 patient did not survive despite efforts rendered.

Please be sure you are using a buddy system and a good safety system. Please be careful and use good judgment.
