You’re stuffed. Ski it off.

Step away from the pumpkin pie, skiers and riders. Today's turns are are fueled by a turkey feast...and the promise of sun. Every minute of sun that is hitting that corduroy is making it just a little bit sweeter.

There's an inversion up there. It might be cold by the river, but it's at least 25 degrees…

Fresh powder for Opening Day

When’s the last time you skied fresh powder on Opening Day? It’s going to happen tomorrow.

It’s hard to believe we were golfing and soaking up the sunshine a little more than two weeks ago here in Steamboat Springs. Then the switch flipped to “winter,” and the mountain has been getting…

Countdown to ski season

Summer in Steamboat is fleeting, but after the first snowfall of the season, everyone starts counting down to opening day. We got our first snowfall on the last day of September when the mountain was bright with the orange and gold colors of fall. It was one of the prettiest falls I can remember in my nearly 10 years in Steamboat, with stunning colors, the excitement of the season's first snowflakes and warm, sunny days deep into October.…

When You Don't Like Lemonade

You have probably heard the expression, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." I have always appreciated this as it adds a sense of levity and positivity to most situations. I often have thought of this and probably even subconsciously have used it as a sort of a mantra through life's frustrations and difficulties.

Recently, after an ongoing rough patch I suddenly realized, I'm sick of lemonade! I would really love a nice cup of soothing tea. Enough of the lemons and lemonade.…

Training Blocks not Blues

Every fall , it's the same story. We all have the sudden stress of "getting in shape for ski season". One month before ski season, we crank out a few hundred squats and lunges hoping to dissipate the intense lactic acid come our first few runs. Sure, it helps but what if there was a totally different way to approach our ski fitness which would go well beyond our first winter turns?

Goals Shmoals

Recently I heard a commencement speech from Tim Minchin. Now whether or not you are famliar with Tim or even approve of his humor, he had some incredible insight which has left me thinking.

Speaking to his alma mater, Tim wanted to bestow 9 key points to tackling life after college. The entire speech is actually quite fabulous but the first point left me questioning my own logic. He very bluntly started his 9 key points with the audacious comment,  "You don't have to have a dream".…
