You didn’t make yourself a poet – you entered a situation in which there was poetry.”   —   Derek Walcott

(Apparently, I’ve avoided those situations for the majority of my life!  So much of poetry is alien to me, and if you can’t readily understand it, you can’t write it.  I did compose a haiku a few years back, and it got a nice amount of Likes.  So, I guess even the blind squirrel finds a nut, from time to time!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HIGH ROLLERS

(Technically, Boulder CO is a high desert area, and not an alpine area.  Although, they’re at the foot of the Flatiron mountains.  The biggest clue to today’s answer, for me, was the painted window sign of Alpine Lanes!  Luckily, I’m working with the full-sized Jumble today, and not the reduced-sized one.  For you unlucky ones, stuck with the reduced-sized one, you might not have made this out.  You could get the pun, even without the visual clue, but it might have been more difficult for you.  None of the clue words were new today, but two of the jumbles appear to be.  We’ve definitely seen “igame” and “gyrol” in the past.  And, “glory” is another one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order!  Superb answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  I like the kind of crazed look Jeff gave the gambling bowlers.  Friendly betting is one thing, but it can easily get out of hand.  Be well and do good, friends.)  —   YUR

PS.  Some spammer tried to post a comment that said they could make this site the #1 site on Google.  Type in “jumble spoiler” in Google, and see what you get!  Also, another spammer has been repeatedly tried to post this weirdly aggressive rant against Donald Trump, Taylor Swift, and Emma Watson!?!?  It has come under various email addresses.  They’re both nonsensical and offensive, at the same time.  These things are why I have to manually approve the comments you read.  Some blogs seem to allow ALL comments.  If I could allow certain regulars’ comments to post automatically, I would.  I’m not sure if WordPress has the ability to do this.   —   YUR
