As we wrap things up here in the Blue Ridge and begin our trip west, we can’t help but feel a little bittersweet. We did our best to see all of our favorite people and favorite places in the rolling Blue Ridge mountains. We will finish out the remainder of the 2019 tour in Colorado representing Elevation Outdoors Magazine. While we’re sad to leave, we’re even more excited to get back to our old stomping grounds. With any luck, we’ll even be able to break-out our snowboards a few more times. Even though the weather in Colorado might not reflect it, it’s summertime and we’re happy to share our summer schedule with you! Take a look and hopefully, we’ll see you this summer!
