Winter Park, CO

We spent Labor Day weekend with family up at Winter Park.  On Saturday Kyle and I spent the day downhilling at the park, and on Sunday most of us headed up to do a long hike up to Stanley Mountain.

Winter Park Terrain Park

Winter Park has invested big time in making the resort a year-round destination, and in the summer riding their groomed bike trails in the Trestle Bike Park is a requirement for us.  Kyle and I had a blast bombing down Shy Ann, Long Trail, No Quarter, Search and Seizure and the new Wall Street trail.

Check out what it’s like to ride some of these crazy trails in these vids. One thing – the GoPro Karma Grip gimbal is sooooo smooth that it makes the trail a lot less scary than it really is.

Stanley Mountain Hike

On Sunday, the family drove to the top of Berthoud Pass and headed up to Stanely Mountain on a beautiful late summer day. It’s a pretty easy hike although there is a section of switchbacks up a steep pitch that make the legs burn. We made it most of the way.
