  • Everything I Learned at Steamboat Was Magic

    Steamboat Ski Resort

    Steamboat Ski Resort

    By Greg Packer, born and raised in Steamboat Springs, CO

    My parents met in Steamboat Springs in 1976. My mom found her way to Steamboat after her car broke down just outside of town. My dad had taken a trip west but ran out of money to make it back home. Both of them landed what they thought were going to be temporary jobs in Steamboat, but after a short period of time, neither of them could overcome the power of the Yampa Valley mystique. Several years later, I was born.

    Born and raised in Steamboat, a.k.a Ski Town USA ®, I grew up with a view of the world through Champagne Powder ® glasses (actually they were goggles). The wisdom bestowed on me during my childhood spent in one of the top ski destinations in the country, taught me more than just how to ski, but rather how to live, what to do, and how to act.

    Brad Larsen, Telluride Ski Resort

    By Rachel Walker

    While Colorado is full of family-friendly resorts, sometimes you just need to leave the baggage kids at home and get away to feed the beast. For this, I went to Telluride. In late January, I kissed my kids and husband goodbye, hopped on a short flight from Denver to Montrose/Telluride Regional Airport, and spent the next three days skiing my brains out.

    Here’s what I learned about this terrific, remote destination: Continue Reading

    Get Your Legs and Heart Pumping at Aspen Highlands, Powderhorn, Telluride and Crested Butte

    by Kristen Lummis, www.braveskimom.com

    Whether you ski for fitness or fun, or a sublime combination of the two, there are benefits to skiing hard and working your heart and legs.

    First, you get more endorphins, more quickly. And that’s always a good thing. Second, you get warm. On a super cold day, nothing will warm you up (nay, get you sweating) quite like hiking to the top of a mountain, or skiing a non-stop bump run. Third, you build endurance and strength, both of which make skiing more fun.

    So with that pep talk, here are my favorite cardio-challenges on the west side of Colorado. Put these resorts and their signature experiences on your list, or take a week and make a tour. Continue Reading

  • Keeping the Edge: Gear Maintenance

    on March 8 | in Deals | by | with Comments Off

    Now that we’ve entered what is historically the snowiest month in Colorado, you definitely want your equipment to be in the best shape possible. Here’s a helpful videoblog we put together with our partners at Christy Sports last year about how the pros wax, grind, and sharpen your boards to perfection. Through the end of March, you can get 20% off a ski or snowboard tune there, just bring this coupon with you.

    There’s nothing like feeling the G-forces of a true carve on a groomed run, or feeling like you’re flying while floating on deep powder. And, there’s nothing like getting smacked down onto a patch of ice when you can’t hold an edge, or getting stuck on a catwalk because you have no wax. It’s not you. It’s your gear. Continue Reading
