Host Scott Jones offers up a few events happening in Colorado over the next week, including a special Denver edition of Mappy Hour and a talk by local backcountry explorer and author Fritz Sperry.

Events previewed

Wednesday, January 25

Boulder: Premiere of climbing movie “Uncharted Lines” at the Boulder Theater. Every climbing reward comes at the cost of a potential risk, but when you are a climbing pioneer, driven by the unknown and unexpected, you are willing to risk whatever it takes for the chance to find the perfect first ascent. This untouched line is the ultimate prize for professional climbers Paul Robinson, Jimmy Webb, Daniel Woods and Chris Sharma – four of the best climbers in the world who have each dedicated their lives to the sport of rock climbing. Told through five separate stories, Paul Robinson is the common thread that links each story together as he travels from Russia, to the southeastern United States, to Spain, to Zimbabwe, and finally back home to the Rocky Mountains, interacting with these three athletes along the way.

Denver: Mappy Hour at Denver Beer Co. – Matt Doyle (@FATMAP) will be hosting a roundtable about digital tools to use in the snow. From phone apps to watches to beacons and more! What inspires you to plan outdoor adventures? Which types of technology do you use while skiing? Which apps are the most popular? What kind of technology do you hope to see in the future?

Friday, Jan. 27

What in the world is going on in the wor….Colorado.  That’s right, every week we are (still) producing a shorter format show that will let you, the adventurous and outdoorsy Coloradan (or visitor of this awesome state), know how you should fill your schedule. That is, if we get back from the mountains in enough time to tell it to ya’.

There is something for everyone in the next few weeks.  Take a listen, and if you have something you would like to share with us, leave a comment and we would be happy to have you as a guest to let our audience know.  No more endless internet surfing on Friday nights, just listen for about 10 minutes and you’ll know what’s up! Come back next week and maybe there might even be new intro text here rather than just rehashing last weeks with a few changes!
