It takes a lot of riding to get there, but the views from the top of Steamboat Ski Area, after riding part of the Continental Divide Trail and Mountain View Trail, are great. They’re only part of the draw to the route, which will serve as the trail for next month’s Ride 4 Yellow event with Lance Armstrong.
