Cats in the Cradle

Always great to lead a father and son duo on a ride. Billy, who just graduated from THE Ohio State, and his dad Chris, an ultra marathoner, wanted to get out and see Durango from a different view. We went on our classic 4 hour tour, covering 23 miles and 2,200 foot elevation gain, with dramatic views and epic single track. Finished up with some delicious beers at Steamworks brewing Co.

Wolf Creek

The family and I took a recent trip to Wolf Creek to do some snowboarding. The ski area sits at the top of Wolf Creek Pass along highway 160. it is a high alpine resort with 10,300 feet at the base and 11,900 feet at the summit. It is a no frills resort famous for its abundant powder and tree runs. It consistently gets the most snowfall in Colorado, giving it the tag line, “the most snow in Colorado.” There are many areas that you can hike out to, making it feel like you are in the back country and not at a lift aided ski area. The boys and I hiked up to the top of Alberta Peak, 11,900 feet, dropping in to some awesome powder. I’m ready to get back again soon!
