She’s been standing on World Cup podiums almost since before she could drive. Fast-forward four years, an Olympic Gold medal, two World Championships, three World Cup titles, as well as 15 wins and 24 podiums, and 20-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin can now burn rubber on Mikaela Way, a street named in her honor in Avon, Colorado.

Shredly – Functional Fashion and Fun Multi-Sport Clothing

Posted by on Aug 5, 2015 in Bicycling, MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

Satisfying a niche and fulfilling a demand is exactly what Shredly’s owner Ashley Rankin did after recognizing the lack of stylish, fun and feminine biking and sportswear for women. They say that black goes with everything but after awhile it’s just plain boring. When it comes down to it a pattern is way more fun. Pair that with a product that fits great and your on to something. That was Ashley Rankin’s vision. Based out of Carbondale, Rankin researched her product idea. It helped that she studied apparel design at Colorado State University but when it came to funding she wasn’t entirely sure where to start. During some of the...

Organ and Tissue Donation – Chris Klug Foundation

Posted by on Jul 28, 2015 in MTN Town Magazine | 0 comments

Organ and Tissue Donation is quite possibly the most precious gift you can leave your fellow man, woman and loved ones when it is time to depart this world and head on into the unknown. I have always made sure to check the “Yes” box whenever I renew my license. For me it is not even a question. If I have something left over from this wonderful body of mine and it is still “usable” I would like to be sure it could help benefit another in need, ’cause really letting it wither back into the earth before it’s time just doesn’t make sense. That concept was really driven home recently....

Colorado Tent and Yurt Stays – Glamping!

Posted by on Jul 20, 2015 in MTN Town Magazine, Stay | 0 comments

In order to land on this list, we had to disregard all the fabulous, and tempting, cabins and permanent-walled structures. It’s time to keep on with tradition of Western exploration and narrate the trend of Tents and Yurts. Originally intended to house nomadic peoples, its usage is widespread across the continents, but its true glory, is only known to a few. These portable structures, usually with a dome or pointed-like top, will not only fascinate, but may leave you longing to put one up on your own property. They can be massive in size, large enough to hold a dinner party of 20, or they can be intimately sized...
