The U.S. border with Mexico used to run straight through Colorado, until a war in the mid-1800's.  The treaty that ended the war and created the region we live in and know today is going on display at History Colorado. Then, the National Brotherhood of Skiers marks fifty years on the slopes this weekend in Colorado with an ongoing mission: inclusion in all snow sports.
