Dunton Life Introduces Brand-New Winter Activities

 Dunton Hot Springs, the iconic 19th-century ghost mining town turned luxury resort in the Colorado Rockies, has introduced a brand-new winter activities program for the 2018/2019 ski season.

Guests at Dunton can choose from a selection of guided outdoor adventures this winter, which are now included in the nightly rates. For the non-skier looking for a great workout, Dunton offers snowshoeing, the perfect way to explore the more than 1,600 acres of private snowy wilderness area of the San Juan Mountains, to which Dunton Hot Springs is home. At Dunton River Camp, the summer-only tented camp just four miles down river from Dunton Hot Springs, guests can now explore this area in wintertime with the new Winter Wonderland experience, featuring a day of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and horse-drawn sleigh rides pulled by the resort’s beautiful Percheron horses, with time to relax by the fire with a hot beverage in the farmhouse.  And for guests seeking a more “elevated” experience, Dunton can take them out on a Nordic Ski Adventure on the High Meadows, which starts with an exciting Snow Cat ride up to 10,000 feet for an exhilarating day of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

The winter experience at Dunton also offers the option to book a wealth of private, a la carte activities, from snowmobiling and ice climbing to heli-skiing and backcountry skiing. And for a more intimate evening for couples, Dunton now offers a Sleigh Ride & Dine experience, which takes guests out as the sun sets on a private sleigh ride, followed by dinner for two in the original 19th-century farmhouse at Dunton River Camp, capped off with a bonfire and cocktails under the stars.
A winter stay at Dunton Hot Springs can also be paired with a stay at Dunton Town House, the collection’s five-bedroom luxury inn in Telluride, which was just named #1 on the “Top Hotels in Colorado” list and #4 on “The Best Hotels in the U.S.” list in the 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards from Condé Nast Traveler magazine. Guests who book a wintertime stay of at least two nights at both Dunton Hot Springs and Dunton Town House (and at least two of the properties, including Dunton River Camp, in summertime) will receive a 15% discount off their entire stay.

6 Things Millennials Can Do to Maintain Their Youth

Many people in their 20’s are stressed out about high post college student loan debt requiring side hustles to pay it off. They’re noticing tired eyes and premature wrinkles as they turn to filters to optimize their social media photos. There is pressure to keep up with celebrities their age not to mention the countless millennial “social media influencers” who are setting the new standard for beauty and youth. Bottomline, millennials are stressed, and they don’t want to look it. Dr. Manish Shah, a Denver, Colorado Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in facial plastic surgery urges the under 30 crowd not to overdo it with expensive treatments and procedures that can actually make them look older and put them further into debt.

Here are Dr. Shah’s 6 things millennials can do to maintain their youth.

1. Use sunblock every day.

“The best way to make sure your face is protected from the sun is to use a daily moisturizer with SPF of no less than 30,” explains Dr. Shah. He also suggests applying creams to your neck and chest to postpone wrinkling and sagging in these areas. “The sun protection done daily in your 20’s will pay off greatly in your 40’s,” he says.

2. Get your Vitamin C.

“Vitamin C is a huge collagen booster and it also reduces pores and brightens skin, and these are the exact things women in their late 30’s and 40’s complain about most,” he reveals. Foods such as cantaloupe, mango, pineapples, oranges, grapefruits, and berries are all packed with this antioxidant which, when eaten regularly does wonders to sustain a youthful glow.

3. Ditch the fast food and eat more fish.

Those late night post partying fries and pizza are to be expected and at 25 are difficult to avoid. Perhaps your metabolism can handle it, for now. Offset these weekend indulgences by eating fish during the week. “Fish oil has fatty acids can erase early wrinkles you may notice. It prevents inflammation which can only make wrinkles more noticeable and deeper over time. Many millennials who are picky eaters and avoid seafood can get Omega-3’s via supplements but getting it directly from eating fish is best,” Dr. Shah suggests.

4. Quit smoking.

Nothing will age you quicker than smoking. “It is possible for a 25-year-old to look 8-5 years younger, within just 3 months after quitting smoking. This number increases after age 30. Women over age 40 who don’t smoke typically look up to a decade younger than their counterparts who still smoke,” says Dr. Shah. There are a gazillion reasons to quit smoking. Linking it to vanity is a pretty powerful motivator.

5. Decrease your sugar intake.

You really want to start getting mindful about your sugar intake in your 20’s for many different reasons. “Sugars and carbohydrates are a beauty killer because they are pro-inflammatory. Pasta, ketchup, candy, ice cream, and fruit juices are often dietary staples for those under 30. Any inflammation in the body will show up on the face in the form of adult acne, sagging and wrinkling not to mention sallow skin tone,” warns Dr. Shah.

6. Maintain your glow with facials and peels.

While many millennials are starting off with “Baby Botox” which can postpone wrinkling, Botox isn’t cheap. It also can be a “gateway” treatment which leads to lip injections and fillers that often have a reverse effect making younger women appear older, cautions Dr. Shah. “Lasers and peels have come very far, offer an excellent solution for sun damage, skin texture, pores, acne scarring and cell turnover to stimulate collagen growth.

Dr. Shah concludes that millennials who get into a good solid habit of taking care of themselves both inside and out, will create a lifestyle of longevity. “Millennials raised by mothers who may have had breast implants, Botox and lip injections may feel that getting things “done” is normal. This is exactly why I am always very honest when advising patients under 25 on procedures they’re considering.”

Fetch: CBD For Pets

Numerous international studies suggest that CBD may be beneficial for pets with issues such as anxiety, inflammation, seizures generalized pain, nausea and inappetence. New Fetch tinctures which some in two bottle sizes depending on the size of your pet) contain full-spectrum CBD obtained through CO2 extraction from American-grown industrial hemp. There is no THC (the chemical in marijuana that produces a “high” sensation) and therefore no psychoactive effects. Safe and gentle for beloved pets, each Fetch formula is third party lab-tested for potency and residual solvents. All of the plant material used is tested for heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides.

The company was started by a Boulder, Colorado-based full-service hemp extraction lab (founded in 2016 by combat veteran, Craig Henderson) called Extract Labs. It’s a great product to use to chill out your pet if they have anxiety, have to travel or are in stressful situations. For older pets, it’s also fantastic for joint and muscle pain.

OVERNIGHT MOAB ADVENTURE

Overnight Sensations –

Moab Adventure Center Offers Options

For Visitors Short on Vacation Time

Short on vacation time this summer? Utah’s Moab Adventure Center suggests that a two-day break in a brand-new setting and doing something outside your comfort zone can feel like a week away.

“Moab is a great stopping point for that cross-country road trip or brief weekend getaway,” notes Moab Adventure Center Manager Cort Wright. “With so many half-, full-day and overnight adventures to choose from, no one is ever disappointed!”

Wright recommends these two water-themed, short-break options in the iconic red rock playground of Moab, encircled by two national parks and the Colorado River.

Option one is Colorado River/Moab 2-Day Adventure with one night of catered camping under the stars and rafting that begins where red rock cliffs cast towering reflections on the river.  The per person double rate of $295 includes all meals (including a barbecue lunch at a riverside lodge), camping equipment, transfers, and a choice of three different kinds of boats in which to experience the fun of rafting nearly 20 miles. Guests have the option of letting the guides stay in charge rowing an oar raft, or they can be part of the paddling crew on paddle rafts. Two-person inflatable kayaks are also provided so guests can take turns paddling on their own. For details see https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/colorado-river-adventure

Option two, Cataract CanyonRapid Express: Moab to Lake Powell, is a 2-day Colorado River/Moab raft and camp (one night) through 46-mile Cataract Canyon on the Colorado River as it cuts through the heart of Canyonlands National Park.  Just 30 minutes west of Moab, guests board customized, high-speed rafts that depart for a two-day, 100-mile Colorado River voyage. Experienced professional guides share folklore and facts about ancient Native American civilizations and early settlers while dropping into a series of nearly 30 whitewater rapids that make Cataract Canyon legendary. The journey ends on the scenic and still waters of Lake Powell before shuttling back to Moab. The per person double rate of $760 includes hiking, camping equipment, meals, rafting and transfers. For details see https://www.moabadventurecenter.com/cataract-canyon-express.

A third option is for visitors who have secured their own lodging in the area and are looking for iconic adventure. A Moab Signature Vacation Package (with deluxe upgrade option) offers two days of activities with on-own lodging that include on Day One, an Arches National Park Tour in the morning and in the afternoon a Slickrock Hummer Safari. On Day Two comes a morning Colorado River rafting adventure. The per person rate is $215. With a $35 per person upgrade the Hummer Safari turns deluxe and includes drinks and appetizers at sunset and the rafting adventure moves from half-day to full-day and includes a barbecue lunch.

PIRELLI AT 2018 PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB

PIRELLI CELEBRATES RECORDS AND VICTORIES ON BOTH FOUR AND TWO WHEELS

AT 2018 PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB

New Acura and Bentley records and the third best time in history by Simone Faggioli all achieved with Pirelli tires

June 28th2018ThePikes Peak International Hill Climb is one of the most esteemed motorsports events of the year. And as a leader in motorsports on both two and four wheels, Pirelli was of course present at this year’s event over the weekend, achieving success in both fields in the unique race up Pikes Peak hill in Colorado, which is the highest summit in the Southern front of the Rocky Mountains.

Rhys Millen(Bentley) set a new Pikes Peak SUV record time of 10:49.902 in the 2018 Bentley Bentayga, equipped withPirelli P Zero™road tires.

On Pirelli P Zero slick tiresAcuraachieved three new course records and three podium finishes as follows:

·PPC-Pikes Peak Open Class CourseRecordby Peter Cunningham in a 2018 Acura TLX GT: 9:27.352

·Hybrid Powertrain Course Recordby James Robinson in a 2017 Acura NSX: 10:02.448

·Front Wheel Drive Course Recordby Nick Robinson in a 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec: 10:48.094

The same P Zero slicks were used bySimone Faggiolito set a time of 8:37.230 in a 2018 Norma M20 SF PKP: this was the third best time ever with a combustion engine recorded in the history of the Pikes Peak event, which has been running since 1916. And this was the top overall time with a combustion engine at this year’s event.

Pikes Peak, the second oldest annual motorsports race in the United States, was also the occasion for Pirelli to present its completely renovatedPirelli Hillclimbrubber range. It includes a wet tire, a Cinturato, and three slick tires: Ultrasoft, Supersoft and Soft. And this really was the ultimate combination used by drivers utilizing Pirelli to take home their respective successes at Pikes Peak.

Also known as the ‘The Race to the Clouds’, Pikes Peak represents a very important technical challenge for the tires above all.

“The biggest challenge tires face is from the vast temperature changes participants experience during the course of the race at different elevations. At the start of the race, the average temperature is 77 degrees Fahrenheit, while at the top of the hillclimb it can be 32 degrees Fahrenheit or it can snow at the highest point (14,110 feet), like it did for the race on Sunday. Another difficulty comes from the bumpy asphalt, in part due to the tracks created from clearing the snow which can ruin it. Therefore it is necessary to develop a tire which guarantees grip both in high temperatures at the start and in lower temperatures as the drivers ascend the hill; as well as maximum driveability on uneven asphalt. And, considering the new records and success this year, this is exactly what Pirelli tires have done,” said Terenzio Testoni, Pirelli Off road Activity Manager.

Moving onto two wheels, Pirelli also attained the following results: a clean sweep of the Heavyweight Class on Pirelli tires, withCarlin Dunne(Ducati) in first place, thenRennie Scaysbrook(KTM) andCodie Vahsholtz(Ducati) in second and third on the podium respectively; plus a new Middleweight Class record by Chris Fillmore (KTM), who smashed the record by more than 30 seconds with a time of 10:04.38 to take the title on the iconicPirelli DIABLO™ SUPERBIKE(SC1 front, SC0 rear) tires.

The Economist x Midterms

Today The Economist launched its first real-time midterm model, which uses statistical forecasting to predict how many seats in the House of Representatives each party is likely to win in this year’s US midterm elections.

View the model here:

Applying cutting-edge machine-learning techniques to political science, the model combines information from polling, past elections, special elections, fundraising, ideology and “fundamental” factors like the economy and incumbency.  It has been trained on every election cycle since 1942 and nearly 6,500 historical district races. The model will conduct 4.35 million simulated elections every day until the vote, live-updating to incorporate up-to-the-minute data.

The Economist’s midterm model currently predicts that Democrats have a 2 in 3 (or 65%) chance of taking the House, and holding an average of 222 seats, or 4 more than is needed for a majority.  It shows that there is a 95% chance that the Democrats will hold between 206 and 241 seats.

The Economist’s data team plans to launch a similar model to forecast Senate results later in the year once primaries are complete and more polls become available.
