At the start of January Out There published a list of 52 local outdoor adventures that Andy Wineke and I thought represented the best of living in Colorado. Then we threw down the bike glove with this challenge: the person who did the most of these adventures, and sent in photos proving it, would get a whopping gift certificate at Mountain Chalet. Pretty sweet.
Anyway, the year is a quarter gone. Time is running short to ski to a ghost town or go on a hut trip. However, there's still plenty of other ways to scrape a knee still waiting. Here are two for April:
-Bike, hike and ski the Imperial Challenge the last weekend of the season at Breckenridge. Bike from town, then carry skis to the top of Imperial Bowl at 12,998 feet, then ski down. First one down wins.breckenridge.snow .com
- Catch the songbird migration at Chico Basin Ranch. The trees of this massive ranch are a stopover for thousands of feathered wayfarers. chicobasinranch.com
