Time for another episode of Snow.com’s Après Adventures. This time I filmed Ryan Ross skiing as fast as he could down a hill and over a freezing pond while wearing a hula skirt. This was all for Keystone’s end of the season celebration, Slush Cup.  Next year you might want to sign up!  Check it out to see if Ryan makes it across the pond.

Recently I posted a trailer I made on building bamboo fly rods.  The full version of the video is still on it’s way but for now here is the fly fishing video, Floaters, I made on our float trip down the Colorado River back in September, thanks to the renowned Shawn Bratt.  We were lucky to be able to fly fish with Shawn again and (left to right) Jenny, Kalli, Clint, me, & Brian.  Shawn is an incredibly smart & passionate flyfisherman, you can read more and even purchase a handmade bamboo rod here on Green Drake Bamboo.  Clint founded Freestone Aquatics which specializes in aquatic habitat restoration, enhancement, and creation.  Floaters, the video below, is simply a beautiful bright day out fly fishing the Colorado River by Gore Canyon.

Curious to see more?  Here is a video I made a few years ago for The Network DC with Shawn Bratt fishing Cheesman Canyon.

Here’s a new episode of Après Adventures for Snow.com where Ryan Ross takes us on a tour of three local favorite breweries.  We start in Breckenridge head to Dillon and end in Frisco.  Every month we’ll come out with a new untraditional adventure in the mountains which will be posted on Buzz.Snow.com and I’ll post it here.  If you have any favorite unique activities to do in the Rockies let us know and we might feature it!

Here is the first episode of Apres Adventures with Ryan Ross for Vail Resorts Snow.com.  We are super excited to make this monthly web series exploring the more untraditional activities in the mountains (including Keystone, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, & Vail).  Stay tuned for updates and to learn about what diverse adventures you can participate in while visiting the Rockies.  A new episode comes out shortly.  Check out Ned Archibald’s recipes of the pies featured in the video above.

At the end of September Brian and I took a quick trip into the mountains to try and catch some of the leaves changing.  I used to take this for granted, perhaps it was while living in Los Angeles where there aren’t any seasons.  Fall in the Rocky Mountains is incredible!  We got lucky and it was perfect as we camped on Twin Lakes and drove into Aspen.  I debated about bringing my video camera.  Sometimes I should live in the moment but for me I just can’t go somewhere beautiful without documenting it.  …and when it’s all over I’m so happy that I have the footage.  One of my favorite places is Independence Pass and during the fall it is sooooooooooooo beautiful!

I think this will be a good weekend in Denver to see some colors.  Hope to see some of your photos or video!
