Savour the Slopes

Submitted by Caroline Padden on Wed, 01/30/2013 - 11:40am

This culinary festival offers a new twist on après ski. Daily tastings—held at unique locations around the resort—pair food with drink, and fit into one of three overarching categories: food (themes like seafood, chocolate, or barbeque); wine (California reds, bubbles, or a taste of Italy); or beer and spirits (port tasting, single malt Scotch, Colorado beers). This weekend's lineup is all about wine, such as Friday's "Tour of Napa Valley" wine tasting held at the Alpenglow Stube. Daily 4:30 p.m.

 

Women in Combat: A Conversation with Female Soldiers

Submitted by Michael Krumholtz on Fri, 01/25/2013 - 1:32pm

Approximately one of every five U.S. soldiers is female, war often gets painted in a masculine hue. But with the recent news of the U.S. government lifting a ban on females serving in combat positions, our women soldiers are in the forefront of the nation's consciousness. Colorado College will host a select panel of these women, who will share war stories and discuss the Warriors Transition Batallion, which supports military men and women who are recovering from the physical and psychological effects left over by warfare. Wed 6:30-8 p.m.

Beer and chocolate have more in common than your taste buds might suggest: They're both fermented and both are believed to have been created by accident—and they just so happen to make a great pairing.
