  • Snowshoeing offers hikers outlet...

    Unlike woodland creatures, hikers don’t have to hibernate in the winter. Snowshoeing is hiking … on snow. And on Jan. 12, Echo Lake Park, as well as Keystone Resort Nordic Center and Estes Park Winter Trails will be hosting Winter Trail Day.
    Winter Trail Day was created 18 years ago with the hope that everyone who loves exploring outdoors and would like to try snowshoeing and/or cross country skiing would have the opportunity to do so, even if they have never done so before.

  • 2012: The year in review

    The year of 2012 saw numerous athletic achievements from Lexie Malazdrewicz and the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ showing at the 4A state championships to PAC Rugby finally winning it all to the success of EHS’ boys and girls cross country teams, led by Jackson Sayler and Samantha Skold, respectively, at leagues and regionals. With that said, the Canyon Courier looks back at 10 stories that made headlines in the past 12 months.


  • Gambel’s oak is a rare sighting...

    When I go down Little Cub Creek Road, I always look for a small cluster of Gambel’s oak, which grows on a scruffy southwest-facing slope just south of Mountain Park Road. It is a clump of small trees. Although they have single trunks and are tree shaped, they are little more than shrubs.

    The meet was long since over, but one swimmer remained in the pool. Evergreen senior Lexie Malazdrewicz seemingly effortlessly continued to glide back and forth across the water as Wulf Recreation Center emptied out. 
    “I have a morning (club) practice tomorrow. I just had to do a little more warming down and loosen up for it,” Malazdrewicz said of her extra time in the pool after another Lady Cougars victory.

  • EHS displays heart despite final...

    Lane Williams wasn’t going to concern himself with the scoreboard. The Evergreen wrestling coach knew that the mixed results that the Cougars had Dec. 11 in their triangular dual meet with Platte Canyon and Clear Creek weren’t a true reflection of how well his team actually wrestled.
    How could it be considering the number of forfeits across the board?

  • Mahonia can be put into fresh...

    It has been a sunny day but considerably colder than it has been. I assume that means the cold front is moving in and temperatures will be more what we normally expect in December.

  • All-conference football team

    The following is the 3A Metro West all-conference football team for the 2012 season:


  • Lady Cougars hang with...

    BROOMFIELD — A frustrated Amy Mohr called timeout with 6 minutes, 38 seconds left in the third quarter with her Evergreen Lady Cougars down 13 points. The fact that she showed such emotion with her team playing a perennial powerhouse in Broomfield though may have been a good sign.
    History would suggest that Evergreen had no business even being in the game with the Lady Eagles, considering Broomfield won five straight 4A state championships from 2007-11. But there the Lady Cougars were for most of the first half.
