Can helmets cause a false sense of safety on the slopes?

Skiers and snowboarders aren't required to wear helmets in Colorado. However, many people do wear them to help prevent and lessen the severity of head injuries. Parents are particularly diligent about helmets for their kids. According to the National Ski Areas Association, in the last ski season (2015 to 2016), 90 percent of kids wore helmets on the slopes.

If a drunk driver hits you

Between the Christmas eggnog and New Years champagne, the holiday season can sometimes be a little too festive. The annual drunk driving totals during the season are frightening and too many are injured and killed by drunk drivers. The state patrol has cracked down in recent years, arresting 596 drivers on suspicion of DUI in early December 2015 alone. The "Heat Is On" campaign is publishing the tally online this year, and it's only growing as the season gets underway.

Many causes of ski injuries

Coloradans have our own language, and it's frequently tied to the local elevation. In Grand Junction that's 4,583 feet above sea level, defined by the majestic Rockies. We use the land as our playground, and downhill skiing is one of the state's top attractions for both locals and tourists.

What are hosts' responsibilities regarding underage drinking?

As the holiday season gets into full swing, many Colorado residents will be hosting parties that include minors. Even if you're cautious about not serving alcohol to minors, preventing young people in your home from gaining access to alcohol (or bringing their own) is easier said than done.
