"Since spare time is so valuable in residency, you really ought to make the most of it. We in Colorado have world-class skiing, climbing, hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking, all just outside our door.

Every season of the year is optimal for some mountain sport. In the summer you can hike, camp, or fish in the nearby Indian Peaks range, or raft down the Arkansas River. Fall is great for driving through the aspen groves of the Front Range while the leaves are turning color. Fall is also the ideal time for glacier ice climbs in the high mountains, as well as for mountain biking near Denver, or maybe a road trip to nearby Moab, UT.

Winter is unarguably the time for snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, ice skating or ice climbing. And the spring is optimal for running around Denver's Washington park, for climbing alpine spring snow routes in nearby Rocky Mountain National Park, or for mountain biking in high desert around the town of Fruita, CO. 

If these are activities which significantly add to YOUR quality of life, you should be here."

-Alan Best, Class of 2010
