    EVERGREEN — For Ruger Bixler, the start to the wrestling season was difficult. After all, the Platte Canyon junior was coming back to the team after taking a year off. He needed to knock the rust off, you could say.

    Are they adventure-seeking skiers in pursuit of more outdoor choices for their favorite season? Maybe they are impatient mountain bikers who yearn to be in the saddle, irked that biking season is months away.

  • Technology help for the outdoors

    Surrounded by rugged peaks, wildflower meadows and trout-laden rivers, people living in Colorado revel in the breathtaking — sometimes quite literally — vistas and accompanying recreational choices.
