With the snowboarding trip for 2015 only 6 weeks away, I decided to finally revisit the footage from last years trip Colorado and edit a proper video. We stayed in Avon and rode at Vail and Breckenridge. Last year was a record year for snowfall in Summit County and overall conditions were excellent while we were there. We also discovered something new, the Minturn Mile. It’s a backcountry route to the town of Minturn, which sits in between Vail and Beaver Creek. You leave Vail through it’s backcountry gate, ride about 3 miles through various terrain and then walk a mile to your final destination. This usually ends with drinks and dinner at the Minturn Saloon, a very old and highly rated restaurant and bar. Unknown to us, the saloon was booked for a private party so we made due with a pizza place down the road. No worries though, it was a nice last run of our trip and will have to be a new tradition anytime we visit Summit County.
