Very well taken car of car by a mechanical engineer - I keep a full maintenance log for my baby. Still, its been through a whole lot of climbing trips, ski trips, 6 months in Mexico, and two trips to the Black Rock desert. The back seats fold down flat which is very convenient for transporting lots of stuff. Canoe is not included :-)
SKIING / MOUNTAINS
My car has winter tires and new struts for improved winter handling - I love taking it skiing. However, it is not all wheel or four wheel drive.
I highly suggest you take the 1 hour $14 RTD bus that directly goes from the airport to my street with a 6 minute walk. I can provide very detailed instructions for this option - it is what I always do when I fly and I fly a lot. Schedule:
