Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Today's probably the best day of the year for an urban assault, and I know some of the local video crews are going to be out around town on filming missions.

For those of you looking for more of the deep stuff close to home, check out Eldora or Echo Mountain - The two ski areas closest to Denver got the best of last night's storm, reporting 18 and 16 inches, respectively, more than any other resorts in Colorado.

Echo's open until 9pm tonight, which means you can still get some sloppy seconds even if you didn't have a snow day today.

Wherever you're headed this week, there's going to be some fresh snow and some slushy roads:
Spring has sprung. Have fun!

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
