An event called the Winter Carnival launched recreational skiing in Colorado. It took place 100 years ago in Hot Sulphur Springs, about a half hour outside Winter Park. Ryan Warner speaks with ski historian Tim Niklas to talk about about the last century of skiing here in Colorado. He's the director of the Grand County Historical Association.
