Wanted: Skiers

Filed under: AM Roundup |

With skiers staying away frm the ski slopes this winter, the Colorado Tourism Office has launched a promotion to attract people to the state’s resorts.

The Denver Business Journal is reporting that the office took out a full-page ad in the New York Times, announcing that snow had arrived in the state.
