Finding the flow

Mountain biking enters new age of design

By Isaac Woods Stokes
What defines a flow trail? Let’s think back to the halcyon days of a kid’s summer, dripping popsicles, scabbed knees and all. Remember the big hill in your neighborhood where the local tough guys and girls built milk-crate jumps and effortlessly aired in banana-seat high style?

Leave It To Beaver

By Isaac Woods Stokes
'Not exactly roughing it' is the spot-on slogan - nope, not exactly. BC gets gold stars for service at every turn. The bus drivers flash the pearly whites, the lifties exude a Deepak Choprah level of contentment, and the ski instructors radiate a level of professionalism on par with your average thoracic surgeon.

Keystone for kids

Resort has something for everyone

By Isaac Woods Stokes
I'll confess that in the four years and four ski seasons since my son was born I have been torn; I could either log major time in magic-carpet land or focus on my own skiing.

It's almost that time again

A preview of the 2010-11 ski season

By Isaac Woods Stokes
Skiing is seductive enough, the classic Cloudveil commercial featuring the prototypical ski bum handing over his resume 2009/Dishwasher/ Jackson Hole, 2008/Dishwasher/Alta, 2007/Dishwasher/Mammoth captures it, but every year the resorts of Colorado make it that much more difficult to focus on gainful employment.

Seven days, 500 bikes and a unicycle

By Isaac Woods Stokes
Having survived the BC Bike Race (BCBR) in British Columbia and lived to tell enough tales that hometown riding buddies are threatening restraining orders on any further reminiscing, I can say for sure that fat-tired wise, forevermore there is BC BCBR, and AD BCBR.

BC Bike Race 2010

By Isaac Woods Stokes
