Colorado poet David Mason's ode to winter celebrates all that is special about Colorado snow. Among its other fine qualities, "the quiet of it warms you like a friend," he says. This video will zoom you across some of the most amazing ski areas and alpine terrain in the Rockies: Powderhorn, Ski Hesperus, Kendall Mountain, Purgatory, Crested Butte, and Echo Mountain. Some of these runs and snowshoe trails are just a quick trip from Denver. Others lie deep in the Western Slope. Regardless of where you go, the white stuff in Snow's Perfect State has a way of turning the landscape into a magical realm. What lines will you carve out there this winter?
