You love mountain biking, and you love your dog. It only seems natural to combine the two and bring your furry four-legged companion—who I’m certain is a very good boy or girl—along for the ride. Unfortunately, between leash laws, trail use restrictions and the inability of most dogs to utilize the mechanical advantage of a wheel and axle for efficient travel, finding the right rides for you and the pupper isn’t as easy as it sounds. These are a few of our favorite mountain bike rides in Utah to...

5 Unique Spots to Get a Drink in Utah Mountains

There are plenty of places to get a drink at resorts around Utah, but what makes a spot really stand out? After spending a few days tipping a couple back at numerous haunts around the mountains, things can blend together into a vague, nostalgic haze of walls adorned with retro ski gear and the inert ubiquitous trappings of upscale mountain contemporary decor.  I don’t want to send the wrong message here. I’m not above a $2 macrobrew tallboy from the local dive, a decadent cocktail served with a...

A ribbon of snow and a winter that never arrived in Lahti, Finland. (Photo: NordicFocus) In a typical season, you might expect late February in Lahti, Finland to look wintery. 61 degrees North latitude, ample snow on the ground and clinging to the trees, maybe even a reindeer? In fact, in a plug for the venue showed a woman skiing through a snow-laden town and arriving at the base of the towering ski jumps.  But it was not so today.

Tag Team Parenting and Skiing

Contrary to the rhetoric you hear from World Cup podium contenders and grizzled backcountry guides, most people don’t actually get on skis before they can walk. It’s a basic consequence of the human development timeline. With my first winter as a parent approaching, I realized there was a substantial period of time still to elapse between having a child and projecting all my unachieved ambitions onto her unsuspecting psyche while teaching her to pizza. My wife and I historically spent the better...

US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig.

Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...
