#var:page_name# cover

Travel with Alex Drummond forty years back in ski history when he and two other men made the first ski crossing of Colorado in a continuous 490-mile line from Durango to the Medicine Bow Range west of Fort Collins in spring 1978. Hear and see how they traveled on skinny skis, navigated by maps and compass alone, kept their packs ultralight, and enriched their mental adventure by imagining Ice Age nomads following them one day behind. Alex is a Colorado native living in Salida since 2011 and remains an avid outdoorsman. Tickets are $5.00 and available at the door!
