The 'Times,' They are a Changin'

"What's happening."

The period is intentional. For The Mountain Times, it's no longer a question.

This time next week, "the High Country's Newspaper" becomes "the What's Happening Newspaper."

Combining months of research, experimentation and solid journalistic know-how, The Mountain Times is unveiling a comprehensive redesign next Thursday, making our already reader-friendly paper even more so.

Pleasing to the eye, easier to read, simpler to navigate come to mind, but it's our readers who we're counting on to offer feedback during this transitional - and fun - time in our life.

Expect sequenced features, meaning you'll find what you're looking for on the same page, week after week; expect interactive features, involving you, the reader; expect a dynamic front page, splashed with colorful photos and artwork, directing readers to equally dynamic inside pages.

And per usual, expect the most comprehensive coverage of what's happening in the High Country - events, news, lifestyles, film, music, art, theatre, dining and more - all from our award-winning staff.

And expect a few surprises along the way. Bear in mind, this is your Mountain Times. Readers are our No. 1 priority, and we want to produce a paper that does the High Country proud.

So, contact us with your comments, be they compliments and kudos or complaints and grievances. Just e-mail ( , and we'll take it from there. That's what's happening.
