Hello friends,

My name is Nick Wood, publisher of Fort Collins Lifestyle. I’m beyond excited to share with you the GOOD NEWS and be a part of this community publication. My wife and I believe this is the perfect place to raise our four children. Whether we are skiing, camping, hiking, fishing or simply finding a moment of solitude along the Poudre River, we know how lucky we are to be in such an amazing locale.  

Fort Collins holds a special place in our hearts. Our new business partners have been a joy to get to know. These partnerships mean a lot to us, so thank you to everyone who has joined us and made this adventure possible.  

We have many great local stories in this premiere issue that we are excited to share. You will read about Storm Apparel, a clothing line that makes you feel fantastic with a mission straight from the heart. As many of us prepare to gather with friends and family for holiday feasts, learn how to prepare the perfect cheese platter from the experts at the Fox and the Crow. 

Happy reading!

Nick Wood, publisher
