Not about biking, but . . .

Skiing is probably the best reason to be a cyclist.  IOW, skiing is the cool sport and cycling is the way to stay fit.

Last week in Aspen, Colorado.

Evening in Aspen

Me and P with wine and burgers on a warm spring evening in Aspen

Slopeside at the end of the day, Snowmass, Colorado

Some blue run at Snowmass, the home of the marvelous blue cruiser

P has lost nothing in 5 years off the skis

World Cup Finals at Ajax Mountain, Aspen; not that we saw any of the races

Aspen Highlands backcountry with a hike to 12,500 feet

Me somewhere on the Aspen Highlands ridge

View of the Two Maroons wilderness over the backside of Highlands

OK, the snowcat helped on the hike

Ski Patrol hut at the top of Highlands with a view over the wilderness

P at the Ski Patrol lodge

P at Ajax

My office at Ajax on March 16

Color me envious. I'll join you at the highlands next time.

Yes, that was the surprise of the trip. Highlands was the plaintiff in a classic antitrust case from the 80s.
