Matt Moseley

Rockin’ out, saving the environment and taking Boulder to task over municipalization

By Tom Winter
Matt Moseley is sitting in his office, a cool structure at the back of his home that at one time might have been a tiny carriage house or garage, but has since evolved into a funky shack full of psychedelic posters advertising concerts and other debris of a life full of diverse interests and activities.

Life like Fritz

Guidebook author Fritz Sperry wants you to go skiing

By Tom Winter
The trail starts at the edge of Frisco and immediately begins to go up. It is cold, but not as cold as it was when I pulled in front of a coffee shop an hour earlier to rendezvous with guidebook author Fritz Sperry. The sun has seen to that, pushing a growing warmth down onto the slopes of Royal Mountain.

The Abetone advantage

Sun, snow and a privileged location in Tuscany

By Tom Winter
The warm scents of the Mediterranean followed us as we turned inland from Italy’s Mediterranean coast and headed toward the mountains. We could see through the early spring haze that there was snow up there; an unlikely rumor from under the palms that dotted the promenades of the coastal fishing villages.

Schooled in snow

CU’s freestyle team eyes another big season

By Tom Winter
The state is known as “Ski Country USA.” It’s a place of rugged peaks, high mountains and snowy winters. So, if you’re a skier looking for a place to get educated, it’s no surprise that going to an institute of higher education in the Centennial state might be high on your list.

Vulture lookout

Getting acquainted with critical, if a bit creepy, neighbors

By Tom Winter
In the big picture, vultures are everywhere. They are comprised of two groups, Old World vultures and New World vultures. You can watch them fly almost anyplace except the colds of the Antarctic and, surprisingly, Australia, a continent that would seem well-suited for the birds.

HALLOWED GROUND

Exploring mountain biking’s Boulder roots in Crested Butte

By Tom Winter
We catch our first sight of the peak after traversing the very passable and amazingly scenic Kebler Pass dirt road, the back door into Crested Butte. As we enter the historic Colorado mining town, it’s impossible not to look past the restored Victorians and the funky shacks to the jagged mountain that gave this town its name.

THE BIGGEST ADVENTURE OF ALL: LIFE

How Banjo Billy took life by the wheel

By Tom Winter
Boulder is full of the intense, the extreme, the committed. People who climb the highest mountains and kayak the most dangerous rivers. People who jump the biggest cliff and grapple with remote rock faces. In this swirling milieu of the hardcore it’s easy to overlook John Georgis.

Gonzo swimming

By Tom Winter
New Orleans’ Lake Pontchartrain is only 12 feet deep. But that’s deep enough to drown. And you can drown there — that is, if the alligators don’t get to you first. And if the alligators do get you, you won’t have to worry about a coffin. The scraps of your flesh that they leave behind will be eaten by the bull sharks and the alligator gar: ugly prehistoric looking fish with massive jaws full of spiny teeth.
