Denver Ski Bus’s wintertime shuttles facilitate easy group travel to Rocky Mountain peaks while minimizing travelers’ environmental footprint. Denver Ski Bus runs regular trips from downtown Denver up to Copper Mountain and Winter Park that can accommodate up to 56 passengers and their equipment. Many vehicles boast perks including reclining seats, WiFi, and TVs that let passengers relax after a long day of hitting the slopes or getting into trouble for hoarding all the Swiss Miss packets in their ski suits.
At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.

The community-oriented Colorado service stations also support local philanthropic organizations including the YMCA and the grassroots road-safety campaign, Drive Smart.
Since its founding by owner Bill Clark in 1962, Drive-In Autosound has expanded from an OEM radio-repair center to an automotive-enhancement hub with five locations. The audio department still doles out sonic toys such as stereos and speakers, as well as high-tech modifications including auxiliary ports, MP3-compatible sound systems, and plug-in a capella singers. The MECP-certified installers also equip cars with remote starters and GPS systems from more than 50 brands—including Kenwood and Pioneer—and factory-trained technicians augment rides with window tints and stylish wheels.
The dirt eradicators at A&J Detail outsmart standard automated washing tunnels by going above and beyond the abilities of robotic scrubbers. As customers take advantage of free Wi-Fi, their team scours every crevice of carpets, coin trays, and dashboards to banish smudges and debris and cleanse the mouths of manner-less talking cars. After their services, vehicles as large as a tour bus and as boat-like as a boat come off the cleaning lot as pristine as the day they emerged from the showroom.
