Steamboat Adventure

My cousin Brian and some friends flew to Colorado from Philly on Wednesday night to get some days of skiing at Steamboat. Last year I bailed on skiing with Brian, so this year I made the trip out with Chip and his friends on Friday. After an amazing dinner at the Ore House, I spent the night with Brian and

Mountain Adventures…

On Wednesday, I rode Beaver Creek solo. view from the gondola… …and view from the mountain. There was some fresh snow that day, but the best snow was gone by midday. I spent the later part of my short day  riding the baby park and the halfpipe. The rest of the day was spent like most this week, hot tub,

Spring Break…

This year, I was in need of a spring break as bad as any other previous year. And so far it’s been great. Starting with skating Louisville on Saturday… Photos by Glen: Saturday night I was supposed to head up to the mountains, but stuck around to hit up a Jeremy Fish art show in Denver with a crew. The art

The Ides of March…

I admit, I always forget where “beware the ides of march” came from. I think I always mix it up a bit and assume it’s part of Irish history since it’s only 2 days away from st. patty’s day. Today I actually mentioned it to my friend Jon and since he didn’t know what it meant, I looked it up…

Vail… and back to reality.

Wow, it has been so long since I’ve written about any adventures that I can’t even remember all the stories I was planning on rambling on about. Hmmm… I did manage to fit in 4 days of riding in an 8-day period… quite an accomplishment. During the week I was seriously quitting everything and moving to Breckenridge… seriously. Friday afternoon

Still on Vacation?

Classes may have started and I’ve been back to work for 2 weeks now, but while things haven’t gotten so crazy, I’m trying to live it up as much as possible. Thursday was my first day with both classes at Angevine, but the timing of the classes are late enough that I could enjoy going out to breakfast with Lazer

I LOVE Colorado.

I always wish my vacations were longer, but it’s great to be back in Colorado. My flight back didn’t get in until 11pm on Sunday night, and I realized that morning that there was no way that I would be able to make the last bus to Boulder, which left the airport at 11:20pm. Luckily, the Kupperbergs (Jules and Amelia)

Effing Cold Week. In review.

It was so cold this week! I seriously could not help missing Montreal when the weather dropped below 0 degrees F (about -18 C) for about 3 or 4 days straight. Some weather forcasts even claimed that it “felt” as cold as -20 F (-29 C). It was so cold that my cats Wallace and Grommit, who are brother and

Season Opener.

First day riding the Colorado rockies. The adventure began at 7am when I rolled up to Reed’s house and waiting for Kaya and his girlfriend Ashley to pick us up. We cruised up to the mountains drinking rumpelmints (hot chocolate, peppermint schnapps, and some crushed candy canes). I totally blew it by forgetting my pass, so we first went to
