In the rumble seat

Smellavision, you’re so 1999. A movie theatre in Denver has gone “4DX.” Billed as a step above your run-of-the-mill 3-D movie experience, the Regal UA Denver Pavilions theatre offers not just smell, but simulated weather and moving seats to further jostle moviegoers into the moment.

According to a press release, the moving chairs “sync perfectly with blockbuster films, and weather and scent effects surround the viewer to create a multisensory experience.”

Of course, the price for all this multisensory overload is not cheap: tickets to the 4DX “Lion King” cost nearly $24. Not to mention the cost of choking hazards when ill-timed mouthfuls of popcorn coincide with seat activation. Then again, you can get a similar effect sitting in a frigid theatre next to a guy eating Taco Bell while the kid behind you kicks the back of your seat for free.

Just like video killed the radio star, social media has put a hurtin’ on Silverton’s spectacular Ice Lakes Trail. One of the most popular – and most FBed and Insta-ed – trails in the San Juan Mountains, Ice Lakes is seeing even more unprecedented numbers of visitors this summer with the pandemic.

Not your dad's jorts

Leave it to the folks in Aspen to elevate even the lowliest of mountain wear to new fashion heights. Take the humble jort, a staple on local trails since, well, at least Chad Cheeney moved here in the ’90s. Introducing the world’s first “action sport jort,” made with technical fabric to bring that “I-give-zero-effs” attitude to any outdoor adventure while supplying that all important stretch and secret anti-chafing properties to the underside.
