The biggest concern for this afternoon/evening will be frigid temperatures. Highs will only max in the teens and 20s with breezy conditions and wind chills in the single digits. Throughout the afternoon, a few light snow showers are possible. Any accumulations should stay under 1" and is not a big concern. Additional snow is possible this weekend...head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
Army Captain David Rozelle enjoys breezing down Colorado's ski slopes with ease and doesn't run into trouble until the skiing is over.
The 31-year-old soldier from Fort Carson lost his right foot in a land mine explosion in Iraq in June. An artificial foot lets him ski, a blessed escape from his limp and his crutches, at least for a little while.
Hundreds of disabled veterans, including a handful from the war in Iraq, were at Breckenridge this week to learn how to ski and snowboard at an event run by Disabled Sports USA.
Disabled Sports executive director Kirk Bauer says he's seen wounded veterans take to the slopes before but it never fails to inspire him. He says people go from slow motion, all of a sudden, to being filled with confidence and having fun.
