    Grand Traverse

    Grand Traverse

    The Grand Traverse is a ski race like no other: skiers begin at midnight and navigate 40 miles through the dark and they often face blizzards, frostbite, and gear failures. The race follows old postal routes through Colorado’s high mountains connecting the iconic ski towns of Crested Butte and Aspen– racers trudge over mountain passes topping out at over 12,000 feet. Needless to say, the event is reserved for hearty and adventurous folks – like Pat O’Neill. Pat is the only person who has participated in the race every year since it began in 1997, and he’s come to realize the race is about more than finishing fast— it’s about the adventure, his ski partners, and the memories.

ugh Reds ,

Chbyt and the girls were going out and

The app is great but the mail is still a bit more expensive and it crashes every time I try it out on my iPhone to get a new app

Good when they’re actually on-topic

Loved it when it was actually about adventure and nature type stuff, but the need to insert politics and the flagrant over representation of individual sexuality is a bit much. Nobody cares

Mr Jake Snake ,

Great Storytelling

Thoroughly enjoy putting the headphones in, going for a hike or run and just letting the stories captivate me. Thanks for the great entertainment!
