The North Face Speaker Series – Alpine Climber Conrad Anker in Breckenridge

The North Face Speaker Series – Alpine Climber Conrad Anker in Breckenridge

Conrad Anker will recount his incredible story of climbing in the world’s most extreme conditions to Breckenridge residents on October 12. In The Impossible Climb, presented by The North Face and The North Face Breckenridge Store, Anker will offer an inspirational look at the depths of human endurance and share his amazing journeys. Anker’s climbing career runs the gamut from Everest to Arctic big walls, but the vertical Sharks Fin on India’s Mount Meru pushed him the hardest. Demanding two grueling expeditions and a teeth-clenching dose of suffering, Meru was Conrad’s ultimate expedition. The VIP meet and greet reception will take place prior to the main event at The North Face Breckenridge Store, located at 322 South Main Street at 5:30PM. It’ll include premium seating, wine and beer, and hors d’oeuvres from The Briar Rose restaurant. All proceeds from the VIP reception will go to the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC). For more than 30-years, the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) has provided life changing outdoor learning experiences to...

Precarious Peak and Copper Lake – Adventures with WestElkProject.com

Precarious Peak and Copper Lake – Adventures with WestElkProject.com

WestElkProject.com – A desire to do something new took me to the top of Precarious Peak in the Maroon Bells – Snowmass Wilderness in the Elk Mountains.  It was impressive to say the least, so we’ll just start with that.  What will be much harder to describe (and definitely cliché-sounding) is the constant feeling of elation that I felt as I walked through scenes of green aspen groves, cold creek crossings, dark timber, and high rocky peaks where tufts of shedded mountain goat hair clung to my hand hold above 13,000 feet. The ridiculous-looking “Spider Face” off of White Rock On Saturday morning I left the Copper Creek TH at 8:30 AM with my friend Tom Runcie.  We had spoken about “getting on top of something high” while at work the previous week, I guess hanging out on ladders painting big houses can do that to a man.  We made the decision at the cars we would try to hike up Precarious Peak (13,380 ft), or really we just...

Colorado’s 2013-14 Ski and Ride Season Will See Great Resort Improvements

Colorado’s 2013-14 Ski and Ride Season Will See Great Resort Improvements

We saw some recent posts on Facebook shouting out upgrades and new projects at Loveland and Arapahoe Basin recently!!! Now that is the type of construction projects we like! Today we got a great update on all of Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts about the off-season improvements that will greet guests this upcoming 2013-14 season. The infrastructural improvements will create elegant, adventurous, and exiting experiences for skiers and riders, regardless of their age or ability level. Significant snowmaking and grooming additions, new large scale drinking and dining facilities, and luxury resort lodging renovations have all been designed to maintain Colorado’s reputation as the top destination for a world class guest experience.   From Steamboat’s multi-million dollar on-mountain lodge to Silverton’s new overnight heli-trips, the investments are as diverse as the guests they will serve. And with the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics just around the corner, the upcoming season is guaranteed to be accompanied by a renewed sense of excitement for all who are connected to the sport.
