I love skiing, but this fatbike thing is becoming more and more tempting.

The Blue Bus Is Callin' Us

Blue Bus - RTD Mountain Trail

For many years 'mass transit' to our local ski area consisted of thumbing a ride at the 'Hitching Post' at the bottom of the road up the mountain. While effective (if hard to schedule) for one or two people, it didn't work for groups heading up. For the past few months there has been another option called 'The Blue Bus'. Early reports were dubious, but ridership has been building and the Mountain Trail Blue Bus looks like a success.

Turns for Another Season

After a mixed ski season I am more than ready to be mountain biking. I won't pretend that I ride this well but, I can dream.

Leave it in the Ground

“That coal has to stay in the ground. You can’t make the math of climate change work if you get the huge coal deposits of the Powder River Basin out and pour them into the atmosphere.”
  — Bill McKibben, author, scholar and environmentalist

Skiing in the Modernist Age

Winter Sports in Italy - Franz Lenhart - ski poster

I don't envy their equipment (low leather boots and scary bindings), but I do envy their style. I've loved old travel posters for years and just came across this auction catalog of vintage tourism and ski posters. While some of these are well out of my price range, a few are temptingly affordable and unsold. Browsing the posters is a pleasantly nostalgic way to spend a sunny Friday afternoon.

Mountain Bikes Could Save Ski Resorts

Angel Fire Bike Park

As I write this it is February 6th and 61°F at my home, which is roughly 15°F warmer than average. Given that 2014 was the warmest year on record, what is the fate of ski resorts? While snowfall is becoming less reliable, the mountains are still steep. Mountain Biking is a way to bring warm weather recreation to otherwise quiet mountain resorts.
