    Sport #3 36er to north side of valley and back

    The tele turns came with a smile on my face, as the snow was firm up
    high, and corn down low. The legs were feeling fine, which was good, as
    I still had 2 sports to go. Made it back home, changed back into
    unicycling gear. This time I would ride about 16 miles, (26 km) of
    mostly pave trails. These trails would take me down to the Roaring Fork
    River, and back up the other side of the valley. I wanted to ride this
    route so I could look over at Highlands ski area, and Highland Peak.
    The day was just getting nicer as time went on. Temperature was now
    above freezing, and the winds were still calm. I turned up the IPOD,
    and cranked my way up the climbs to the desired vantage point. This was
    about 1000', (314 meters) vertical of climbing. Stopped, took some
    pics, and headed back to the house so I could complete the 4 sport day.
    The 36er felt smooth, and I loved it. I had made the Peak to Creek
    adventure, and was heading back for more.

    Sport #4 Snowboard down highlands ski area

    I noticed cars parked on the road along way from the ski area, as I
    pedaled back to the house. That meant that the party was officially
    under way, closing day at Aspen Highlands. :D Back at the house, I
    changed into my snowboarding gear. Rode back up the mountain, and
    shredded my way around in the corn snow, sweeeeeet. Stopped at midway
    to check out the ski splash that was going off. Really fun to watch
    people eat it big in the splash, and really nice knowing that they
    don't get hurt. Made as many turns as I could on the way down, this
    would be the last run down highlands for the EPIC 07/08 ski season.
    What a day, 4 sports; what a year. Life is good, get outside and enjoy
    it!!!!
