8 Easy Ways to Turn Your Home (& Hometown) into a Staycation Oasis

By Brooke Keith

Denver is 6,269 miles from Sochi, where the 2014 Winter Olympics will soon be coming to a close, but did you know there’s a place within Denver’s city limits to catch live slopestyle snowboarding and skiing, and even luge action?
