It’s snowed heavily so far this year, and cross country skiers, backcountry explorers and snowshoers are happy.  Skiers and adventurers of all types are hitting the snow, and while fun, it can also be dangerous.

A number of firefighters from the Western Slope have been traveling to the Front Range to assist with search and rescue and emergency operations there. On Monday (September 16), KVNF spoke to one of them - retired firefighter Hugh Carson. Carson told us about what he's seen so far in Fort Collins.
