Also, he knows he’s very handsome in his new sweater. All the old ladies tell him so.” My old chunky pupper enjoying the snow

Video: Col de la Croix de Fer & Glandon

Col de la Croix de Fer (Pass of the Iron Cross): The Maurienne Valley has several of the most famous paved climbs in France (Iseran, Galibier, Madeleine, Glandon, Mont Cenis, etc). Usually the first above 2000 metres to open every year is Col de la Croix de Fer (2067m). When I saw that it had just opened I rushed to visit and hope for a snow wall or two. I kept the route simple this time, climbing the direct east side from St. Jean-de-Maurienne (map at bottom), so I could take photos and d...

The Case Against Jon Snow, the Stupidest and Most Volatile Man in Westeros

(Welcome to Debate of Thrones, where a panel of Citadel-trained experts explain why someone deserves, or doesn’t deserve, to sit on the Iron Throne. In this edition: Jon Snow knows nothing and would be a terrible king.) You’ve heard the stories, I know. The bastard son of Eddard Stark has carved out quite the reputation over these past eight years. A man who went beyond The Wall and lived to tell the tale. A man who defended the realm against invasion. A man who took command of the Night’s Watc...

It's Winter Storm Xyler...

... bearing down upon us.What did Winter Storm Xyler make you do?It made us load up the car at 3 a.m. on Friday in Moab, Utah, and — after a stop to look at the stars from a vantage point in Arches National Park — drive until 4 a.m. this morning — 1300 miles back to Madison, Wisconsin.We listened to the Grateful Dead channel on the satellite radio the whole way (just about, so it seemed).

Pink’s Party Is Still Going Strong, It’s Just Taken A Maudlin Turn

Pink has never fit in -- so much so that not fitting in has become part of her personal brand. Despite spending two decades operating from deep within the mainstream machine, Alicia Beth Moore can believably tout herself as a pop star for the outsiders and the rebels.

Winters Are Only Going to Get Worse, So Researchers Invented a Way to Generate Electricity from Snowfall

The farther you get from the equator, the less effective solar panels become at reliably generating power all year round. And it’s not just the shorter spans of sunlight during the winter months that are a problem; even a light dusting of snow can render solar panels ineffective. As a result of global warming, winters…Read more...

8 Reasons To Mourn Jon Snow's Hair After Game Of Thrones Ends

Jon Snow and his hair have come a long way since we first met the character during the very first episode of Game of Thrones. Back then, he was only a bastard with a fake beard; ten years and one death later, Snow has become respected throughout Westeros for leading the fight against the army beyond the Wall and growing one sexy man bun.Unfortunately, Snow's hair isn't something we'll have for much longer. Come May 19 (or even before, gods forbid), we'll have to officially bid farewell to the N...

Big snowflakes in April...

Test Drive: 2019 Genesis G70 in Aspen

Plenty of control and some side-sliding fun in the new sedan It’s early morning and we’re slicing through the Rocky Mountains in a 2019 Genesis G70, rolling toward the track at 10,000 feet elevation. Fittingly for this time of year, conditions on the snowy test track will be much like spring skiing; the icy hard-pack snow softening under the sun as the day goes. But at …

Watch these dogs with floofy fluff-butts bravely tunnel in snow

This very good doggo is either hunting something special, or clearing a path for his human, or who knows? Either way, the dog is obviously a submarine. When you thought you were adopting a dog, but instead got a subwoofer. And below, meet Yukon. “He is named after Yukon Cornelius and he, too, is still searching for that elusive peppermint mine!” May I present, Yukon. Destroyer of Worlds.

Skied at Winter Park on March 15, 2019

I was lucky enough to have a mid-day visit on Friday to Winter Park after a huge storm on Wednesday. It was a beautiful sunny day and around 1:00 PM I pulled into Winter Park’s free parking lot and was able to find an open parking spot. After walking past the Moffat Tunnel I was greeted by zero crowds and zero lines. My luck had just begun. View of Vasquez at Winter Park from the lift I made my way up the gondola and wandered towards the Vasquez territory. I enjoy the bumps and ...

Here’s why Portland Parks will install stop signs on the Springwater

Westbound SE Harney Street. ODOT says stop signs are needed on the path because they’re worried vehicle users on streets like this will wait on railroad tracks for path users to cross. When we learned the Portland Parks & Recreation bureau planned to install 10 new stop signs on a newly paved, half-mile section of the Springwater Corridor, several readers contacted us to express their frustration. Illustration by ODOT Rail Division to explain their plans for the Springwater. Stop signs for...

After this weekend's snow in Chadron, Nebraska, Jason Blundell and his kids spent the afternoon sculpting a snow replica of their 1967 Ford Mustang GTA. Nebraska State Patrol Sgt.

Skied at Winter Park on March 9, 2019

Our first day back on the slopes since late January with so much great snow! Rachel looking out across Winter Park on March 9, 2019 It’s tough to write but it’s true: for various reasons, we weren’t able to ski at all in February. It had been way too long. That said, we woke up to 8 inches of new snow overnight at Winter Park giving it almost a 90-inch base. Wow! With our little one too little, we are still working to figure out the way best way for both Rachel and I to ski. We de...
