While I love skiing in Western Canada and Quebec, arguably the two best regions to ski, in Canada, in terms of vertical, there's something about the a...

Recently Girls Flight Out travelled to Colorado where we discovered the real high you get when visiting this state comes by way of its geographic diversity, mixture of charming small towns and urban cultural centres, and the people's passion for all things outdoors.

It's time to cancel your summer beach vacation and head to Colorado instead. Sure, Colorado shines in the winter months when its world-class ski resorts are covered in snow, but those who are in the know head to the Centennial State in summer too.

Canada's recreational market promises to be worth billions of dollars annually if it proves to be anywhere near as successful as in Colorado, which has a population seven times smaller than Canada's 35 million. Last year, legal recreational sales in Colorado almost topped one billion U.S. dollars.

Ski bunnies in the know will tell you that the best powder and grooming in the U.S. is in Colorado. Plan on a few trips to this mountain state to shred the slopes and you're best off getting your mittens on an Epic Pass from Vail Resorts, which gives you unlimited access to five resorts in Colorado (not to mention seven others worldwide).

The U.S. Marijuana Industry Is Looking Less And Less Like A Black Market

What I Learned This Week: Aim For The Front-Lash

It's scary to take risks. But to not take one on the fear and unlikely chance that it may blow up in your face is scarier still. To expect a backlash is to flatter one's self. The only way to cut through the clutter is do something magnificent and exciting. And to do so is to walk a tightrope over the valley of disaster.

What We've Done to the Environment Is Haunting Us Now

It's becoming clearer that what we are putting into the environment is returning to haunt us, resulting in unnecessary loss of lives, malnourishment, disease and starvation. Another key lesson is, the developed nations are not shielded from climate change, nor do they have the capacity to deal with a devastation of such cataclysmic proportion as the recent severe weather event in Colorado.

Quests for Kids: Mile-High City and High Levels of Pain at TransRockies Run

On August 12th I was flying into Denver and still feeling the effects of the four-day Transrockies Challenge. I had got pretty beaten up, riding my mountain bike, navigating trail sections between Blairmore and Canmore. It had been just over a week since it was completed and the cuts and bruises were starting to heal.

Legalized Weed Is Sparking Tensions in the USA

JD Halperin

There is indeed change in America's winds, and it smells like the chronic. Recreational weed will not just be legal in Colorado and Washington, but will be be produced, packaged, and sold in retail stores. Personally, I've never partaken in smoking weed myself because it's illegal in Canada and I am an upstanding, law abiding citizen.

Marijuana and the Election: Time to Start Asking Blunt Questions

Diane Francis | Posted 12.22.2012 | Canada Politics
Diane Francis

On November 6, three states have on their ballots the outright legalization of marijuana -- Washington, Oregon and Colorado. So far, support is strong and bipartisan. The last such vote occurred in 2010 in California where a state-sanctioned referendum on legalization narrowly lost. So you may not hear about the marijuana issue in debates or from the campaign stump, and in polls, but people south of the border are taking the matter into their own hands.

The Presidential Race isn't as Close as You Think

Todd Herron

Is the U.S. election really a neck-and-neck race, like the pollsters in the mainstream media keep reporting? Not really. It would be close, if the popular vote indeed decided the Presidency, but it's the Electoral College that determines who wins. That's why Obama and Romney don't bother to campaign in California, New York, or Texas; the outcomes there are "givens." The swing-states are where the action is -- and this time around, Ohio is the "swingyest" of them all.

Exploring the Lonely Exurbs of America's Midwest

Peter Behrens | Posted 12.16.2012 | Canada
Peter Behrens

The exurban neighbourhods of El Paso County, Colorado seem, to this observer, environments designed for alienation and loneliness: street after street of developer-built houses fronted by enormous, power-operated garage doors, which display an defensive attitude to the street, and to the larger world. It all makes The Netherlands, where I currently live, seem mighty urbane, and civilized.

Real Villains of Batman Shooting are Lax Gun Laws

The gas-masked gunman who opened fire at a theatre full of people, killing twelve and injuring dozens more, reportedly had a shotgun, two pistols, an assault rifle, gas canisters, and potentially explosives in his home. What I don't understand is how it can possibly be alright for a civilian to have access to these kinds of weapons.
