We revamped the Colorado Snow Riders Facebook group and turned it into Colorado Explorers so that you can connect with new friends for all of your adventures! Join and let other students know about social outings you want to organize together. Use the group page to get a group together for First Friday on Santa Fe, or to climb a 14er this weekend, or to listen to your band play at Jazz at Jacks, or to carpool to A Basin for skiing. You can share your pictures here too! Find us at
