Gearing up for the Triple Bypass

By James Dziezynski
It's more than 10,000 feet of elevation gain over three of Colorado's highest paved passes: Squaw (11,140 feet), Loveland (11,990 feet) and Vail (10,560 feet). There's even the bonus elevation of Swan Mountain Road. While not an official pass, Swan Mountain still climbs to 9,388 feet.
