The Indian Peaks Wilderness—it’s close to home!

I’ve only been there once, but it was pretty fun to climb my namesake, Mt. Cameron, even if it’s not an official Fourteener.

Hudson Bio 2

Hudson Lindenberger

The top of Zuma Lift at A-Basin. The view is one of the best in Colorado and there’s all that glorious snow awaiting in Montezuma Bowl.

My hometown of Lyons—an amazing small town to grow up in and still one of my favorite places for trail time.

Adam Chase

Boulder. I was raised here and, despite many changes, it still holds the perfect blend of balanced people who care for their world, their bodies and other people. As much as I enjoy travel, I always cherish returning home.
