Fifty years ago, students at the University of Denver launched Winter Carnival, one of the school’s most enduring traditions. Students from DU have annually made the pilgrimage up the Rocky Mountains to celebrate Denver's proximity to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world.

DU students & Boone celebrated the 50th annual Winter Carnival with a weeklong series of events culminating in an on-mountain celebration at Winter Park Resort in Winter Park, Colorado three weeks ago.

Boone appears to be quite the lady's man. I guess women love a mascot!

Not just home games! I even saw him in Sconie at the Kohl Center.

Well it is true that I sit in the front row and pay more attention to the game than most... maybe that's why I haven't seen him. I do remember however, that the first few times he would show up there would be the Boone chant and lots of applause. I guess the newness has worn off... too bad.

We'd like to get Boone skating on the ice pre-game but so far have been unable to get permission from the Athletic Department.
