Riding for a lifeline

A biking trip to explore a family’s Slovakian roots takes some surprising turns 

By Adam Perry

You do not look like a person who has just biked over 100 kilometers,” Jan “Jano” Rohac of Greenways Travel Club told me, very matter-of-factly, in his thick Slovakian accent as I entered the Grand Hotel Matej in Banská tiavnica, Slovakia, after sunset.

Allies in the Horse Nation

Nonprofit ‘Tipi Raisers’ reach Boulder on 400-mile horseback journey

By Cecelia Gilboy

I was spending the day riding with participants in a 400-mile ride that’s now passing Boulder en route to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Adventure

The traveler’s mindset

Boulder resident will encourage the public at TEDx to get a passport and embrace fear and discomfort in the everyday

By Cassie Moore

There is a rumor (online, at least) that Europeans scoff at the low number of Americans who hold passports. As the joke goes, Americans are world-fearing, isolated workaholics who would prefer to squeeze in an extra 15 hours of work a week than vacation for five weeks in Tuscany.

Rising above Rio

Film shows kids from favelas climbing away from gangs, drugs

By Elizabeth Miller

From one of the largest slums in Rio de Janiero, a twin set of granite cones, called the Two Brothers, rises a thousand feet toward the sky. The favela — the slum — below creeps up the hillside until the cliffs become too steep for houses and instead make a place for some of Brazil’s world class climbs.

Adventure Film

The Adventure Film Festival is a celebration of adventures in their many forms and a bolster to support “the heroic journey and the narrative of adventure as a force for awakening and change.

Something good from war

Learn about the men who made Colorado skiing great

By Hudson Lindenberger

The 10th Mountain Division was an integral player in the rapid development of the Colorado ski industry during the second half of the 20th century. Some would argue it was the most important part. The veterans of the famous division were involved in the founding of Vail (Pete Seibert), Breckenridge (Bill Rounds) and Aspen (Friedl Pfeifer), as well as other related projects like Skiing Magazine (Dick Wilson), and the National Outdoor Leadership School (Paul Petzoldt).

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.

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.

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.

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.
