Lost Ski Areas Book Project Impacts PPPS Production in 2014 - An Apology to Our Readers

Caryn at Vail in 1962
PPPS (Littleton)—As we wrap up 2014 at the Pundit Pete Press Service, we must offer an apology to our readers. 

You see, two of our most loyal readers (and sometimes contributors), Citizen Caryn and Citizen Pete, launched into a fascinating book project about the history of lost ski areas in Colorado. 

So many PPPS staff members became consumed with helping Caryn and Pete with their research, however, that they almost completely neglected their Press Service duties.

The result was a decidedly downhill decline in the number of PPPS stories posted, from 47 in 2013 to only 23 in 2014.  

The good news is that, with the help of the PPPS staff and many others around the state, Caryn and Pete were able to publish this absolutely fabulous book, Lost Ski Areas of Colorado's Front Range and Northern Mountains.  

We encourage those with a love of skiing or history to purchase copies online from the History Press (where Caryn & Pete will get a larger royalty).

Copies are also available online from Amazon or Barnes & Noble, and at bookstores throughout Colorado, including: The Tattered Cover; the Book Bar; and Off the Beaten Path in Steamboat Springs.
