After finishing skiing Colorado’s 14ers in 2010, I had the incredible honor to be nominated for a Sportswomen of Colorado award.
It’s been a quiet start to summer here on the blog, but that’s about to change. The first order of business, the New York Marathon. Sure, the race isn’t until November, but when I run the marathon it will be as part of a charity team, Action for Healthy Kids, and it’s time to pass […]
Continuing with our exploration of the peaks and valleys of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, we headed up to another new area, Dry Lakes and Horn Peak, 13,450 ft.
And in the department of awesome news, Christy was included in Backcountry Magazine’s headline story this month, Girl Power — 37 Women Who Charge, a feature on the magazine’s picks for the most important women in backcountry skiing. I could write volumes on why it’s so deserving, but if anyone really needs to have it […]
The 2013 Elk Mountains Grand Traverse was this past weekend. As our last race of the season, we were thrilled to finish well– Christy was the first female to cross the line and we nabbed the top spot in the Coed Division. And after twelve finishes here (six as a team), our time of 9:55 […]
It took a little while, but I finally managed to get the trip reports from our 14er ski descents back online. Back in 2008, I put together a crude website where I posted thoughts and photos from my 14er ski project. Unaware at the time the direction it all would take, my attention slowly shifted […]
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Put another Grand Traverse in the books. Having had a few days to think about the whole experience, the short answer is that it was a really good race. The weather was mild, there was no wind, and the sunrise was amazing. We got ourselves on the podium as the 3rd place in the co-ed […]
Saturday was the Sunlight Endurance Challenge, a.k.a. the 12 Hours of Sunlight. Last year, Christy and I managed to win the co-ed relay division of this unique uphill/downhill race. Despite a pretty thin field with only a few teams competing, it was still a really close finish against our friends from town, Lyndsay Meyer and […]
No doubt about it, Christy and I have had a lot of cool opportunities in the outdoors. Ever since arriving to Aspen, in 1994 for me and 2000 for Christy, we were always impressed by what we saw and heard people doing in the mountains around town. From that inspiration, we’ve built our own lives […]
