The entire month of March is spring break month in Summit County. College students from all over come here to ski and party. This week many of my own students were not in class because they were celebrating with their fellow students from other states. Coming back from Boulder on Sunday the Interstate was crowded with van loads of students and skis from Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Texas. I guess it is the contrast or maybe the fear of going to Mexico the other favorite place for spring break. I think the whole thing is great. That we can host thousands of young people for a week in the snow. I am sure that they will remember the trip for the rest of their life. The magic of being in Colorado at 10,000 feet is a thrill of a lifetime. Some of us still feel the same way after being here for forty years.
