CrossFit: Back to Work
SKI Mag's blogger, Hillary Rosner, joins a CrossFit gym, which is reputed to be the best—and most brutal—way to get strong fast. It's painful, but the good news is that now Rosner has a backup job...as a brick layer. Or jackhammerer. Or contestant on that reality TV show where they pull trucks of cement. This week she gets back in the gym after a spring of slacking.

April showers bring May flowers… and April gym absences cultivate nothing but muscle loss and lethargy. I learned this firsthand, and now I’m trying to remedy the situation. A hectic travel schedule from mid-March through the beginning of May left me unable to make it to Boulder CrossFit more than once a week. Some weeks I couldn’t make it to the gym at all. As always, I vowed to do some of the traveling workouts designed to be done on the road. But as always, I was too exhausted at the end of a long day.

The Wildflower Capital of Colorado, Crested Butte, hosts the Wildflower Festival. Here's information on hikes, 4x4 rides and tons of great scenery.

Every year, visitors, photographers and visual artists travel to Crested Butte to see the explosion of color during the festival and the weeks surrounding. Glacier lilies are among the first wildflowers to appear, usually in May, literally forcing their way through the snow. By mid-July, the entire mountain is painted with the floral display.

Heavenly Ski Resort, which sits on the border of California and Nevada, is closed for the winter season (there's still plenty to do there this summer, of course). But that doesnt't mean we can't still reminisce about all the powder days that have passed. Here's a video that recaps the entire season at Heavenly.
