Mushroom hunter

Wild foraging is a growing pastime but it should be done carefully

By Cassie Moore

We are in a mixed pine and aspen forest at about 8,000 feet. We walk slowly, scanning the ground for signs of the golden fungus we intend to pile high in our wicker basket. We have seen everything we don’t want — russulas, puffballs and trash.

Adventure

Ride, run and, above all, race

Boulder Cup cyclocross comes to Valmont Bike Park

By Elizabeth Miller

Hour-long cyclocross races are held on technical, hilly circuits and demand a high level of bike handling skill and physical fitness.

Adventure

‘Days of My Youth’ explores the bliss of freeskiing

By Michael J. Casey

For a Coloradan, it’s a very familiar sight: skiers perched atop the mountain, staring health, down the crest, ready to launch into the abyss.

Adventure

MORE THAN 2-D

Half a century of climbing comes to life in Sender Films’ ‘Valley Uprising’

By Elizabeth Miller

No question, the overarching goal of telling the history of climbing in the Yosemite Valley in a single film must have been daunting. This year, Sender Films is using the Reel Rock Film Tour, with its round-the-world schedule that includes hundreds of stops, to showcase.

Adventure

The sport of knaves

Polo for the people

By Josh Gross

The attire is sun hats, plaid shirts and jeans. A line of pickups and Suburus are backed up to the field so people can tailgate. Two girls drive by in a John Deere golf cart shouting “Beer?” as a pit bull trots alongside nipping at the wheels. The teams on the field are delineated as red versus blue.

Adventure

A bolt out of the blue

Lightning strikes ahead of the storm at Vedauwoo

By Elizabeth Miller

When she made the choice to call climbing to an end that day at Vedauwoo, a rock climbing area in southern Wyoming, Emily Isaacs was making what she saw as a conservative call on safety. Most of the 12- to 13-year-old girls on The Women’s Wilderness Institute trip she was working as a rock tech for had climbed by lunch, and while they were eating, Isaacs, a wilderness therapist and professional rock climbing guide, started to see the traces of a storm on the horizon.

Adventure

Pedal on up

The next generation of cyclists brings a wave of change to the sport, ushered in by some of those lost in the middle

By Elizabeth Miller

At the end of the cycling season a year after Timmy Duggan rode on the U.S. Olympic cycling team, he chose to retire. He was just 31 years old and on the edge of what could have been his best cycling years.

Adventure

Carrying on with a heavy load

Sherpas continuing conversation on increased wages and life insurance in the wake of Everest tragedy

By Elizabeth Miller

For Lakpa Rita Sherpa, there was no question. After five of his men died on the side of Everest in the avalanche that swept down its slopes on April 18, he had two things to do — take the body of a friend home, and then come back to Base Camp to tell his team that for him, the season was over.

Adventure

HALLOWED GROUND

Exploring mountain biking’s Boulder roots in Crested Butte

By Tom Winter

We catch our first sight of the peak after traversing the very passable and amazingly scenic Kebler Pass dirt road, the back door into Crested Butte. As we enter the historic Colorado mining town, it’s impossible not to look past the restored Victorians and the funky shacks to the jagged mountain that gave this town its name.

Adventure

Hope on the St. Vrain

A Lyons-based angler returns to a favorite fishing hole

By Greg Lowell

There was no expectation in this fishing trip; I was prepared to be disappointed. But the day was warm and sometimes it’s enough to stand in the river’s cool current and go through the motions. Trout were, it seemed, out of the question but there was a part of me that thought just maybe something had survived the monster flood of 2013.

Desperately seeking snowfall

There´s a buzz building in the air with each cold nip and chilly breeze. Those long, light blue wispy clouds over the western horizon are surely harbingers of wind, freezing temperatures and snow.

Bring on the powderhounds: Colorado’s ski area overview 2012-2013

By Boulder Weekly Staff

Colorado’s ski season opened this year on the slopes of A Basin, locally loved for its open bowl skiing, steep runs and the “Beach” base area that’s so friendly to tailgating parties. With some of the highest skiable terrain in the country, topping out at 13,000 feet, it’s not a surprise that A Basin’s season is one of the longest.

50 years of skiing Colorado

By Elizabeth Miller

Talk to a skier who learned in the ’60s and they’ll tell stories of coaches imported from Europe to teach Americans how to tackle obstacles like moguls — knees together! — and ski edges sharp enough to shred your ski pants. Our rocker skis, wide leg stance and Gortex pants are a long ways from those experiences.

Inside Vail’s new gondola

By Tom Winter

The big news for Vail this year is the replacement of the aging Vista Bahn high-speed chairlift with the most technologically advanced lift in North America. Vail’s new gondola is a masterpiece of engineering.

Fresh winter grub

New dining experiences in Colorado ski resorts and towns

By Adelina Shee

It´s been a long day up on the mountains and the Clif bar you had earlier did no justice to your hunger.

Spend your money on gas, not lift tickets

Spend your money on gas, not lift tickets

By Michael Callahan

After last year’s lackluster snowfall truncated the number of available ski days, it would be nice if Mother Nature gave a little foresight into what Colorado resorts may be in for in 2012-13.

Winter Scene

Have a quieter white winter

Try snowshoeing, cross country skiing to cut the crowds and noise from winter sports

By Steve Weishampel

If the lyrics to “Silent Night” are to be believed, winter is a time when “all is calm.” But try telling that to someone at one of Colorado’s ski resorts.

Basic training

Staying safe in the backcountry starts in the classroom

By Elizabeth Miller and James Dziezynski

After three weeks camped on the Carroll Glacier in Alaska, waiting to ski a certain line after it went into the shade, longtime backcountry skier and guide Donny Roth finally set out for the summit. He and his team hiked to within 200 feet of the summit and assessed the situation. It was, he says, certain death.

Winter Scene

Hot gear for the coldest part of the year

By James Dziezynski

May you snowshoe into the deep woods and get a taste of the sublime stillness. And may you partake in some of the sweet winter gear that has been waiting to be dusted off and get on the mountain.

Winter Scene

Kicking butt doesn´t require two legs

How adaptive ski and snowboarding programs are giving athletes with disabilities an edge

By Jessie Lucier

As the ski and snowboarding season is gearing up, people of all levels and abilities will be heading into the high country — some purely for recreation and the sense of freedom that an open mountain can provide, whether impaired or not. But some are heading to the high country to kick some serious butt.
