PUBLISHER’S GREETING

Colorado Mountain Town Lifestyles

Summer, such sweet words. It has been a very long winter for many of us as spring got shoved to the side by the continuous onslaught of snow. Words of encouragement developed as our worlds stayed brown, white and blue. My mantra was “spring snows equal river flows”. As we all know we need water, lots of water! Reservoirs are at historic levels and our rivers and streams are trickling. Speaking of water, we talk about stand up paddleboarding, aka, SUP in this issue. SUP is a new passion for me, it is a sport that has rapidly grown around the United States and is takng off in Colorado. There is a group of people here in our mountain communities who have taken it to the rivers and are bringing the sport to our people. Being outside is a part of our life especially during the summer months; we can’t get enough of it. Sleeping outside under the stars is a treat. Be sure to gaze at Daniel McVey’s beautiful Milky Way rising image, it is a priority. Then take some chances and try something new. Kristen Lummis did at Winter Park where she learned how to downhill at Trestles Bike Park. After a great fresh air day there is nothing better then a cold beer and in Colorado’s mountain towns each town has its own flavor. We talk beer in our Cocktail pages and then move on to a highlight some great mountain town restaurants. There is so much to do in the summertime. Festivals abound so make a plan to attend one. The Festival and Event guide at the back can help. However, I suggest you take a moment to breathe and enjoy the moment you are in. It is the gift of life that seems to be enhanced here. Happy summer folks.

John Land Le Coq, the co-founder of Fishpond and Lilypond products has seen great success and growth with his company. He acknowledges that with great success comes the ability and desire to support the environment that supports him.

For Fritz Howard that was creating and sewing simple high performance undergarments and clothing. Hailing from New England Fritz desired to live in a mountain town that was not a resort town and made Leadville his home. From the sewing skills his mom had taught him during his youth he began sewing technical clothing and opened Melanzana (Italian for Eggplant) in 1994. His first garments were technical bibs, gaiters and over mittens. Fritz then moved into producing simple fleece clothes as well as river oriented wear. With an elevation of 10,152 feet above sea level Leadville is the perfect testing ground for Melanzanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prototypes.

Melanzana proudly employees local staff from the area. He has 12 employees: 8 sewers, 1 fabric cutter, 2 retail staff members and himself. The building they are housed in is self sufficient with solar panels powering the entire building with surplus energy left to give back to the power company.

Vail Valley native, Erik Dorf is an orthopedic surgeon for Vail-Summit Orthopedics, as well as an avid skier and competitive cyclist, which influences how he interacts with his patients. He often chooses active rehabilitation that allows his patients to keep doing their sports, rather than invasive surgery.

little to no impact on joints, and after a full summer, the joints need to feel stress again before ski season. The transition season is a great time to include plyometrics and lateral movement, even if it’s only for 3 or 4 weeks. Additionally, although cycling can be a good core workout, skiing is much more intensely core. Core work from the winter translates great to the bike, but the core strength from cycling does not translate to skiing, so fall conditioning should include core work. Spring is great because nature forces us to slowly ease into a new sport. We have this cross over time where we are still skiing, but are able to ride our bikes for a couple of hours a week. During fall there is a more drastic transition. If you make the transition between two sports too quickly, the tendon/ bone interface becomes stressed. New sports create a lot of stress across the joints, which in turn, stress the tendon. I see a lot of tendonitis when people jump into a new sport immediately. Achilles tendonitis is common in cyclists after spending a season locked into ski boots. On preparing for a hard workout: Going out for a long workout is different than a short, hard workout. The morning of is really important for a long workout, whereas the night before is more important for a short workout. Eating an easily digestible protein and a light grain the night before a short workout will set you up for sufficient energy stores. Carb loading four hours before a two hour race isn’t going to do anything. For a long effort, a light breakfast will activate your metabolism without over stimulating 22

it and will keep you comfortable. During the workout, I start eating at 45 minutes to ensure I don’t bonk. On recovery: I like to think about doing everything you can to be better and stronger at the end of the week, month or season, rather than being stronger tomorrow. If you think you are going to go out and hammer and be better tomorrow, you’re wrong. You won’t be stronger from that ride until at least two days later, with a rest day in between. In your 50’s and 60’s you would be better off riding every other day for a week than riding hard for 4 days and then taking 3 days off. I always suggest always keeping a bigger picture in mind. Sprinting at the end of a ride without a 15-20 minute cool down is not going to do anything except bathe your muscles in lactic acid. If ultimate performance isn’t your goal, post-workout food doesn’t really matter. If it is, giving yourself all of the nutrients to replenish glycogen and protein stores soon after the workout is incredibly important. With that, don’t forget about fluid replenishment. I like to do a little self-massage at the end of a ride. Massage stimulates blood flow, which is helpful for clearing metabolic stuff. Additionally, foam rollers break up knots and soreness really well. I’m also a fan of compression. It decreases the venous volume, which means you’re getting better blood return to the heart, and especially in legs, that return is really important. Recovery is very much driven by the muscle’s ability

to contract and return blood. The muscles contract the veins and push the blood back to the heart. Compression decreases the amount of blood that’s hanging out in the veins. On the intersection of housework and athletics (you know, the one that always makes you sore for your next workout): Pick your battles. Most likely, if house or yardwork creates injury, you are already bordering on injury. It’s something that’s nagging constantly. If you have a big day moving rocks, just know that you won’t be feeling good for riding your bike the next day. If you do go for the ride the next day, take the day after off. Anti-inflammatories, either oral or a cream, are great for before and after hard work, along with ice before and after for tendons, though not for muscle achiness. I’m a huge fan of ice. On the nagging pain that may or may not signal injury: Most stuff heals. The most important thing is time. If it’s not getting better at all for two weeks, you should head to the doctor, if for nothing else than reassurance. If it’s slowly getting better and you aren’t experiencing any warning signs such as instability and locking in the knees or true weakness in the shoulders, then let time do its work. – Sydney Fox

Mountain Man Mojo FIRST DESCENTS “OUT LIVING IT” By: Chris Anthony / Camp Name: Chopper

Only a handful of Then I witnessed the affect of the days on the river and people get this past the age of 26. Prior to that age I nights in camp and it changed something in both them think living just comes innately. Of course I have no and me. scientific proof to offer on this, my own theory, but I feel like past the post college year’s people stop living From the overwhelming large numbers of young adults and start existing. Than all of a sudden something tragic takes place and your daily existence comes under threat, inflicted with the disease, only a handful are touched by First Descents. I never realized how many young adults existing moves to surviving. It’s then when you might are facing a disease caused by an uncontrolled division start asking yourself what I have I been doing with my of abnormal cells in parts of their body or a malignant life? growth or a tumor resulting from such a division of cells.

“Thank you” and “Your welcome”! This is an exchange of words often heard at a First Descents camp between the Participants and Volunteers. Kanye West pointed out in a book titled with the aforementioned phrase, someone saying “Your Welcome” in return to a “Thank You” must be doing something of value. “Your Welcome” is as powerful and as important as a “Thank You”. A give and take relationship. Such is the partnership between volunteer and a FD Participant. As a volunteer and supporter of First Descents I have been amazed by the amount of tenacity each and every participant eventually brings to an FD program. And its not because only this type of personality is chosen. The program breeds it into the participants. I have witnessed the most timid, perhaps even negative personalities become the most outgoing and aggressive. The medicine of being in a healthy outdoor environment with their peers, and guided by experts minus the outside distraction, builds a spiritual energy hard to describe. But it works. They begin to talk, share stories around the campfire, shed tears and reach for advice. They let go of what they have been protecting only to get in return more knowledge of how to deal with it. Most importantly they learn to trust. The camp I attended this year was built around climbing.

The original FD programs were designed utilizing the therapeutic cure of being outdoors kayaking. This was the vision of professional kayaker Brad Ludden and his family. The kayak camps still remain a significant percentage of the camps, while recently climbing and surfing have been introduced. I personally hope skiing will be added in the near future, than I can really kick into gear. Perhaps it’s because it was the fact this was my first climbing FD camp, or the fact that at one point or another, I literally had a participant at the end of a rope or on the other side of my camera lens. But my recent time with the FD program in Estes Park was one of the most powerful I have felt yet. The cliffs and hikes were symbolic of the obstacles of life and again I learned that something comes out in the participants to overachieve when it becomes tough. I held the rope of one participant as she worked for forty-five minutes to get over the last obstacle of a difficult ascent, eventually doing so. She collapsed in our arms as tears flooded her eyes when I brought her back down to earth. She said, “I could never imagine doing something like this without you all. Thank you”. On another occasion one of our cutest of campers “Lilac” (Each camper and staff is given a camp name) descended a hike with me, only grabbing me for support


when she needed to. Lilac’s recent brain surgery left the right side of her body short of the immediate controls. For Lilac this onslaught of her headache ripped her from her first dream job in New York City, post college and placed her in a hospital for five weeks. Since than she has been trying to get back to life and laughed when she realized in the story she was telling me that she only saw her apartment in New York City a couple of times before never returning. Life has changed for Lilac now and getting back to something of a normalcy is her goal. I have a feeling she will go far beyond that. For “Rainer” Cancer attacked her at 15 and ended her skating career as well as slowing almost everything in her life down. She fought it and went on to graduate from John Hopkins University and now is part of this FD camp as a volunteer and medical staff. It was no surprise that she had overwhelming patience helping every participant out when needed but yet when put on a difficult climb tore her perfectly manicured fingers apart to clear the last pitch. I sat roped into the cliff her above snapping pictures, while from the floor of the small canyon each participant pushed one another verbally as they ascended walls all around. Or would be off sitting with one another talking it through than turning to a guide saying give me some guidance I want to try again.

With each accomplishment self-esteem was built. With each hug, strength was exchanged, with each story around the campfire bonds were created and with each day healing happened. I’m still not sure what the meaning of life is. And the path I have been on has been more confusing than most. But one thing is for sure. I love the new catch phrase from First Descents put out there this year: “OUT LIVING IT”!

SUP Invasion

Story by: Holly Resignolo 32

A surge in the sport of SUP is due the passion of a few whitewater pioneers in Colorado’s MTN Towns

COLORADO’S STAND UP PADDLEBOARD PIONEERS

A

A delightful invasion it has been. I started noticing a rise in Stand Up Paddleboarding on our Colorado water ways over the last three years. I was baffled the first time I saw someone SUP’ing. It was a somewhat biblical experience seeing someone standing up, floating in the middle of a river. My initial reaction was skeptical; it looked just plain ridiculous, downright comical, but none the less interesting. It was an experience down in Lake Powell that really got me interested. A friend had let me borrow an inflatable SUP. I had time to kill while waiting for our crew to show during a camping trip in one of the side canyons. I blew the thing up adjusted the paddle to the right height and set off on a trial. Was it stable? Yes. If I fell off would it be easy to get back up on it? Very easily. How did it maneuver? Not too well at first, but I had not put the fins on, ahh ha! Once the fins were on it glided beautifully, the best part, I could see down to the bottom of the lake where fish galore were cruising. I was hooked. So where did this sport come from. The GoPro Mountain Games just concluded in Vail where a SUP Sprint and a SUP Surf Cross Competition was held. FibArk is heating up and will have down river races and a freestyle event. The sport comes from the worlds coastal regions and has found its way into our Rivers and Lakes. Here are a few of Colorado’s mountain town pioneers, folks who are now bringing the sport to you with board construction and instruction. 33

Charlie MacArthur - Aspen Kayak & SUP Academy Charlie’s SUP roots begin in California where he grew up surfing. Hawaii was a destination his family would frequently visit for surf trips. During those trips he had seen some older surfers paddling while surfing, he tried it and thought it was really hard. It wasn’t until his honeymoon in 2003 when he tried a tandem board in Fiji that he too was hooked by SUP and brought the sport back to Colorado with him. Charlie began designing and testing shapes with Dave Parmenter and C4Waterman for river use. His contributions assisted C4Waterman in creating the first SUP Board designed for river use. In 2007 Charlie added SUP to his instructional offerings at Aspen Kayak Academy and has become known as THE pioneer of River SUP.

Earl Richmond loves the water. It is a passion that he has taken to his line of business, CKS Colorado Kayak Supply, as a co-owner. Although it could appear self serving Earl’s genuine love of whitewater shows in his enthusiasm about getting people into the water and converting them into paddlers. His involvement in the SUP River Board industry has been from inception as the sport took off in our nation’s coastal cities and towns. He has spent a lot of time SUP’ing, learning the sport so he can share his knowledge of the sport and its products. CKS’s Paddlefest has been a huge success with SUP Sports included in the mix. When Earl is out of the shop you can find him in one of two places, playing in the Buena Vista Waterpark or hanging out on or near the water with his family.

SUP Yoga With the rise of Stand Up Paddleboarding has come SUP Yoga. If you thought the core work out you got just taking one of these boards out on the rivers was intense then you need to try some SUP Yoga. Traditional Yoga practices are brought to the board, which are almost always anchored to the bottom of a lake or pond via a tether and weight. With wind will come movement and for a beginner you probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be blown away from the instructor. The serenity of sitting on your board listening to lapping of the water and the outside sounds of nature is extremely relaxing. The movements once mastered are extremely gratifying. Stand Up Paddle Colorado is incorporating classes to their many SUP offerings with weekend morning SUP Yoga classes on the river and afternoon SUP Yoga downriver tours. Wanderlust Colorado, a large gathering of Yogis at Copper Mountain this summer, also has classes lined up in their schedule. Classes for this genre of athleticism are popping up all over including pools. Check your local Yoga Studio and Recreation Center to see if they are joining in on this new sport. 36

Gravity Girl

Getting down to the dirt and catching some air! A mountain girl learns something new while taking control.

Story by: Kristen Lummis, Brave Ski Mom


Winter Park’s Trestle Bike Park is the perfect place to learn.

Learning a new way to ride. “Remember, look ahead to your exit. When you do that, the turns will be easy,” said David, our downhill biking coach. My husband, older son and I were at the Trestle Bike Park at Winter Park, Colorado. It was a beautiful July day. The sun was impossibly bright, the sky ridiculously blue, the air perfectly cool.

Wildflowers were reopening after a night of rest, their petals and leaves still dappled with dew. It was a perfect morning for biking and while my husband and son were adapting quickly to gravity biking, I was not. David could see the doubt in my eyes and the hesitation in my movements. “Slow down going into the turn, pressure your handlebars and accelerate out. You are controlling the bike and the mountain. Don’t let the bike and the mountain control you.” said David. Bingo!


Gravity Biking Isn’t Mountain Biking When we signed up for downhill biking at Winter Park, I was expecting to ride a mountain bike downhill. Silly me. I’m pretty sure the guys in my family knew better than I, but even so, we weren’t prepared. We arrived at the Trestle Bike Shop in the Winter Park Village dressed in our sporty mountain bike shorts and brightly colored jerseys. We looked about as substantial as the myriad wildflowers outside the door. When we left the bike shop we were in enough body armor to take on a battalion of Roman gladiators: full face helmets, chest protectors, elbow and knee pads and goggles. Next, we went to get our bikes. No peppy, crosscountry models, these. The downhill bikes were sturdy to the extreme, with industrial-strength suspension and ridiculously low seats. We awkwardly pedaled over to the Zephyr Express lift. And with a big heft and push, I boarded with David, our coach.

Setting Goals and Starting Over

MTNTownMagazine.com

Riding up the lift, David asked me what I wanted from my gravity biking lesson. “I want to be able to go downhill and make tight turns without being terrified,” I answered. “We can do that, ” he confidently replied. Later he asked my 14 year-old son what he wanted from the day. My son stated “I want to be challenged.” “We can do that,” affirmed David. And, sure enough, David expertly met both of these goals throughout the course of the day. For all of us, the first step was learning a new way to ride a bike. David taught us a new way to turn, a new stance, a new approach to braking: basically tossing out everything we do in cross-country mountain biking or road biking. Fully informed (and, in my case, somewhat confused), we started down the Green World trail, which as you might guess, is an easy way down. Like ski trails, downhill bike trails are rated green, blue and black.


Downhill bikes are sturdy with industrial strength suspension. Toss out everything you know about Cross-country MTB-ing.

Less Thinking, More Riding Part way down, David noticed that I was â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinkingâ&#x20AC;? too much, trying to make all the suggested changes at once. He wisely gave me just one thing to think about, urging me to relax my hands, keep just my forefinger on the brake lever and let all the other fingers dangle down. It worked. I released my death grip and started to flow better down the trail. Soon, David transitioned us to a blue trail and on our second run down, we were riding blue and black trails, with berms, boulders, drop offs, tree roots, rocks and crazy, undulating, angular wooden bridges.

As the features grew larger, so did the challenges. Giant boulders, steep sections of trail that looked like walls of loose scree and ever larger berms and jumps began appearing in our path. I reached my limit well before my husband and son. Still, David found trail to challenge them, with alternative routes to keep me happy. At the end of the day, my husband and son were excitedly comparing notes about the big this, the huge that, and the incredible thus and such. Not me. While I only took on the smaller features, I also took on something bigger: my fear.

Terrified no more, I left the Trestle Bike Park that day much more confident than when I arrived. Not only did I learn a lot about downhill biking, but I learned how to take control. Bingo.

When You Go The Trestle Bike Park at Winter Park has trails for all levels, from total beginners, like me, to the nation’s best pros. Most trails leave from the Sunspot Lodge at the top of Zephyr Express Lift.

and operates 7 days a week from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The Zephyr Express lift provides the primary access to the park, with the Eskimo Express and the Gemini Express lifts operating on weekends. Daily tickets are $39 for an adult and $29 for a child. Half-day tickets (1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.) are $34 and $24. While you can ride your regular mountain bike, you can rent a downhill bike and all of the gear at the Trestle Bike Shop. Or better yet, take a lesson and the bike and gear are included.

The easiest trail for beginners is Green World, which runs top to bottom with gentle berms and rollers. Flowing intermediate trails Special deals include the “local’s” such as Shy Ann and Free Speech package on Wednesdays (a 2-for-1 introduce jumps and elevated trail pass, rental bike and safety gear features. The advanced trails – and you don’t have to be a local) alternate between difficult manmade and Freeride Fridays (ride from obstacles and natural technical 2:00-5:00 p.m. for $49.99, including a features. rental bike and safety gear). Enjoy! The Trestle Bike Park opens June 15 44

A Downhill Alternative Still not sure if the Gravity Biking scene is for you? Then how about catching some speed and refining your skills while cruising down Vail Pass? A well maintained biking path connects Vail to Summit County. Try it yourself or arrange for a shuttle. Alpine Sports in Breckenridge can take the whole family to the top of Vail Pass and let you cruise 14 miles downhill on a paved bike path all the way to Frisco. If you’re in Vail then try Charter Sports for a shuttle up for beautiful winding downhill back to the Vail Village. This is a great day adventure for all ages and abilities.

This scenic getaway is filled with adventure and relaxation.

AN OURAY ESCAPE

It’s had been years since I visited Ouray, so long ago that I barely remember the town at all. It was time for a much needed break. I came with no expectations and was astounded by the incredible beauty of the town and surrounding mountains. I have not been to Switzerland; however their slogan, “The Switzerland of America” seemed fitting as the words “gorgeous”, “awesome” and “stunning” escaped from my mouth. Ouray is situated in the southwest section of the Colorado Rocky Mountains in a range known as the San Juan Mountains. These mountains are characterized by their steep rocky terrain and provide a stunning backdrop for this Victorian mining town. Settled by miners in the 1800’s this town’s architecture is heavy with Victorian era buildings that are now inhabited by shops, restaurants, lodging properties, homes, an Opera 47


House, breweries and more. I was in love. The vibe is so laid back and relaxing even though big adventure waits outside your door. Hiking, Biking, Jeeping, Climbing, Festival, Music, Food, every sense is stimulated by this town. Prior to the arrival of the miners the Ute Indian community came to Ouray for the healing, spiritual qualities of the regions hot springs. My arrival was quite similar. I was in search of the Box Canyon Lodge and Hot Springs. Friends have stayed there in the past and raved about their private hot springs and comfortable lodging accommodations. After a day of exploring the town and checking out Mountain Chill 95.5FMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ouray studio I was looking forward to a soak. I was greeted by clean, well manicured grounds and a very helpful and friendly front desk. I felt no shame discussing the town, its people and the plethora of activities it makes available. My room was perfect with crisp bedding and all the amenities you need for comfort: Coffeemaker, microwave oven, refrigerator, hair dryer, free highspeed, wireless internet and DVD player. The main lobby has a huge DVD library. The hot springs are a treat. There are four individual tubs ranging in temperature of 103 -108F with the top being the hottest and the bottom the coolest but still nice and warm. They seat two people very comfortably although accommodating four is not a problem. This would have been a very romantic evening had my husband come along. It was a respite for me instead. It was a rainy evening with misty conditions and after a long soak you stayed warm enough to get back to your room without goose bumps. I took off for a run the next morning and returned for a light continental breakfast as well as one more luxurious soak before I departed. The stay was exceptional. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking of visiting Ouray then be sure to book a night at the Box Canyon Lodge and Hot Springs. Their offerings consist of Standard Rooms with King and Queen Beds; Two Small Suites; One Large Suite; Apartment Suite and a Honeymoon Suite. Rates begin at $110 per night in the high season and several adventure packages are available. Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs, 45 Third Avenue, Ouray (800) 327-5080

Telluride Brewing Company, Telluride

C

Combine two good friendships: a brewmaster and an educator, the spirit of Telluride and the result is some delicious ales and overnight popularity.

the Rocky Mountain Rye beer, he crafted for Telluride’s Smuggler’s Brewpub.

At their new shiny Brewery and Tasting Room at 156 DEF Society Chris Fish and Tommy Thacher have Drive in between Telluride and Mountain Village you can taste all 12 been good friends for many years of their beers on tap: Russell Kelly with dreams of starting a brewery. Chris Fish their head brewmaster had Pale Ale, Face Down Brown, Tempter been producing some award winning IPA, Redfish Ale, Ski In Ski Stout, beers over the years. In 2005 he was Trippel in Stillwater, Fish H2O Double IPA, Whacked Out Wheat, Beaver awarded Gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, for Pond Blonde, Bridal Veil Rye Pale Ale,

Locals Lager and the Smoke Shack Porter. The latest news is Face-Down Brown is now a two-time award winner taking both the Gold Medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival for “American Style Brown” and also brought home the Gold Cup at the 2012 World Beer Cup. Adventure and music have a lot to with the making of this beer. It is a passion shared by the partners. Rafting trips, skiing and fishing were places where the ideas that they


were hatching grew until their dream became a reality. With that passion for adventure the duo decided to only make their beers available in cans. It is easy to transport cans on those sorts of getaways and cans are more environmentally friendly. The new can holders are recyclable too and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrap around some poor birds neck. Currently Face Down Brown and Bridal Veil Rye Pale Ale can be purchased in select stores around the state of Colorado. Take a look at their website to check where you can pick up a six or two or three. When you are in Telluride you must definitely stop in for a tour and tasting. 156 DEF Society Drive, Telluride 970728-5094 www.telluridebrewingco.com


Elevation Beer Company, Poncha Springs

T

Take four friends, some great ideas and add water. Beer and Friends, it is a recipe for success under the metal roof of the Elevation Beer Company in Poncha Springs. It’s been one year since they started brewing and opened their doors. When we arrived at their establishment to do an interview the staff was in the midst of preparing a private small batch brew. It was a lesson in the brewing process for all and a time for the employees to

share ideas and hang out. Now that’s my type of board meeting. From the moment you walk through their door your nothing less than impressed. Their knowledge of the industry and the creativity in their beer crafting is as refreshing and unique as the beers they serve. The business partners: Xandy Bustamante, Sandy Bustamamnte (Xandy’s wife) Carlin Walsh and Christian Koch all came to the table

with different business strengths. Xandy is their Sales and Distribution guru, Sandy handles all things marketing including their design work, Carlin is the General Manager and Christian is the mighty brew master. Producing speciality beers has been in large the vision of the company. A goal they are certainly meeting. The beers Elevation Beer Company brews are categorized much like the slopes of a ski area. Green Circle,

Blue Square, Black Diamond and Double Black Diamond. Each level is indicative of the beers strength and complexity. With Green Circle beer being an easy going beverage and Double Black Diamond beers being unique, extrodinarily complex brews. The idea of these double black diamond beers is they are adventurous, like a fine wine you want to sip and savor, to take in all of the different flavors the beer embodies.

The brewery is environmentally concious and is constructed from as much reclaimed products as possible. The bar seats are fantastic, constructed from 1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era tractor seats, barnwood and cable from an old Monarch Ski Area lift. Bench seating is from beetle kill wood, outside benches and seats use old skis and snowboards. The trusses in the tasting room are 120 year old Morton Salt Mine beams from outside of Chicago. Even the barrels they are using are reclaimed from wineries and distilleries. A lot of

thought has gone into this Brewery, in the space of one year. It is the beer itself that speaks of this groups genius. Easy drinking beers to beers with tremendous complexity make thier products unique and distinctive. Check their website for sales locations. 115 Pahlone Parkway, Poncha Springs 719-539-5258 www.elevationbeerco.com 67

Breckenridge Brewery, Breckenridge

T

The Breckenridge Brewery opened February 1990 and was the first Colorado mountain town brewery to begin pouring for the people of these high altitude towns. Richard Squire the founder of the brewpub was a passionate home brewer who loved to ski but found he enjoyed making beer the most. From that desire the Breckenridge Brewery was born and the mashing, boiling and fermenting process began in their new building on the corner of South Main and Ridge Street.

became their Head Brew Master. He still does it all, but the focus is on the 8 – 10 beers they have on tap at all times. The beer that is served in the Breckenridge location is brewed on premises. What is unique about this location is all of the production takes place right there in the middle of the bar. The brewery is the centerpiece of the building where the brewers are working. Its accessibility allows people to watch and ask questions.

For 23 years locals and visitors have frequented the establishment as it grew in to a full service restaurant and bar. With its longevity has come growth. The Breckenridge Brewery now operates five locations; three in Denver, one in Grand Junction and the original location in Breckenridge. Between all of them over 52,000 barrels of beer are produced on an annual basis with the Breckenridge Tasting Room on Kalamath Street in Denver serving as their main brewery and production facility.

Exclusive seasonal beers are made there too like the Chili Autumn Beer and fruit and spice infused beers as well as Belgium versions of beers that they already serve. Folks can purchase kegged beer and growlers of beer that have been produced in Breckenridge. Bottled and canned beer that is produced in Denver can be purchased in Breckenridge too.

A tribute to the company is how long people have worked at the brewery. I spoke with Jimmy Walker their Head Brew Master. Out of the 23 years living in Breckenridge 17 years have been spent working at the Breckenridge Brewery. He has done everything from cleaning, serving, cooking and bartending. During those years he learned the art of brewing and four years ago

A nice menu compliments the beers they serve in Breckenridge with a large dining area and patio. Be aware, this place is popular so be ready to drink some beer if you’re looking for seating at a table. Ask to try one off their test batches; they’re always concocting something new. 600 South Main Street, Breckenridge 970-453-1550 www.breckbrew.com

CARLS TAVERN A STEAMBOAT SPRINGS HUB

A

Across the Yampa River from Howelsen Hill sits a newer addition to the Steamboat Springs culinary scene, Carl’s Tavern. Situated in the Howelsen Place building the name was a perfect fit and is a tribute to the man who could fly, on skis, Carl Howlesen.

Collin Kelly, Carl’s Tavern’s owner looked at many locations in Colorado to open his restaurant. It was Steamboat Springs and its amazing community of people that won him over. Today, this restaurant is a melting pot of locals and visitors bellying up to the bar. You will see ranchers chatting with snowboarders, miners hanging out with business-folk, river rats and cowpokes, all grabbing one of the coldest brews around and chatting about the day. It’s not just the circular bar they came for. The food at Carl’s Tavern is delicious. Collin is a Chef by trade who began his career in Denver working for Del Frisco’s and Ruth Chris Steakhouses. He crafted a menu that speaks of comfort food and brings in elements of favorite recipes from his childhood and southern upbringing. Take for example the chicken pot pie. This is not like anything that comes from a freezer. Fresh vegetables and creamy chicken fills up the dish along with a killer crust. You definitely need to try the “Nuggets of Love” braised pork – crispy fried with Shishito peppers and a cayenne-cider glaze. House cured pickles, deviled eggs, seafood, great salads, shrimp and grits, certified Angus steaks, as well as locally sourced pork and lamb are on the menu. The lighting, music, atmosphere and open kitchen make you feel like you had dinner at a great friend’s house. Get to Carl’s for some genuine hospitality when you’re in Steamboat, you will be great warmly, served well and leave very satisfied.

Fatty’s Pizzeria

Dinner, Lunch and Breakfast, Breckenridge

With close to thirty years as the owner of Fatty’s Pizzeria, John Daisy knows how to keep his patrons coming back. Locals can be found bellied up to the bar and scattered around the dining room tables where fresh faces from other places are gathered as well. Consistent well prepared and presented food can be found at this establishment. Don’t be fooled by the name. Fatty’s Pizzeria serves up more than that Italian favorite. Entrees, burgers, sandwiches, appetizers, all hand crafted, are found on the menu.

The newest addition to their menu selections are Breakfast and Brunch. What better time to experience these delicious hearty portions than summer. Not only is the food fabulous so is the atmosphere. The restaurants beautiful vistas of the 10 Mile Range is enhanced by the incredible display of flowers that John Daisy nurtures on the patios and restaurant front. Imagine a mimosa

in hand with a view of the Breckenridge Ski area and fragrant flowers enveloping you. Now add a hearty breakfast and your set for the day. Pancakes, Benedicts, Egg Sandwiches, Steak & Eggs, Biscuits and Gravy, Omelets and more are amongst the selections. The staff takes great pride in preparing a pate that wows you. I particularly love the Blueberry pancakes and fruits. Fresh syrup and butter enhance that airy cake and all that fruit doesn’t make you feel so bad about the powder sugar garnish. This is a must stop in Breckenridge. Grab a seat on the deck and let the world go by for a little bit. You won’t regret it. 106 S Ridge Street, Breckenridge, 970-453-9802 | fattyspizzeria.com

Festival Notes

Blues From The Top Music Festival, Winter Park Some of the finest Blues musicians in the nation will gather in Winter Park for four days of live Blues music. From Thursday, June 27 through June 30th you will get your fill of incredible vocalists and some smokin’ guitar play. Better yet, all of this entertainment will assist the Blue Star Connection, a nonprofit entity that provides guitars, bass guitars, harmonicas, violins, keyboards, flutes and drum kits to children fighting cancer and other life threatening situations. In addition to the instruments they give, the Blue Star Connection provides music therapy programs and opportunities to attend live music events. A portion of your admission will go towards the Blue Star Connection and other music programs in the Grand County school system. Now that should wash your blues away! www.grandblues.org

Commando Extreme Mud Race, Frisco Created in early 2012 by a group of elite former US Navy SEALs, Commando Extreme is the first “Real Deal” Special Operations obstacle course of its kind. Their “O” course will test the mettle of every participant that takes on the mission, although designed for amateur as well as elite athletes of all adult ages. The events team of elite special operators, including former members of the team that took out Bin Laden, brings a unique collective talent to create a fun and challenging course with an element of uncertainty only found within the Spec/Ops community. Each new “operator” will exit our battlefield with pride, knowing they have experienced a true taste of Naval Special Warfare lifestyle by the best. A portion of the proceeds will go to support MakeAHero.org, WoundedWear.org, and OperationFreedomPaws.org www.commandoextreme.com

Gunny Grass Festival, Gunnison Gunnison has long flirted with the idea of a Bluegrass Festival, but has never put on a consistent event of this type. The new I-Bar Ranch offers a perfect venue for an event of this type, with its onsite camping, ample crowd capacity, and stunning setting. On the weekend of June 28-29 , 2013 they will hold the first annual Gunnison Bluegrass and Traditional Music Festival. The focus of the festival will be, of course, bluegrass music and old time music. With an emphasis on “hot” Colorado and national bands, there will be events for the entire family, such as kids music camp classes, a square dance, and arts and crafts booths. Music will continue late into the evening. On the festival ticket are Simpler Times Bluegrass, The Stray Grass, Lost Nation, The John Stickley Trio, the New Folk, White Water Ramble and the Blue Canyon Boys. www.ibarranch.com/gunnygrass
