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

Mark the date on your calendar: September 12 is when snow began falling at the Aspen/Snowmass ski areas. The folks at the resort note that the 2012-13 ski season is still officially ten weeks away, but given this shot of Maroon Bells earlier today, maybe that timeline will be moved up. Let it snow!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
