Named after the cowboy term for the corral of working horses required for long cattle drives, Remuda Golf Course pays homage to the region's roots with an 18-hole course framed by the rugged peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Each hole bears the name of a particular breed of horse, letting golfers brush up on their equestrian trivia without having to pack a Lone Ranger boxset in their golf bag. In addition to its Western flair, the 6,352-yard, par 72 course is distinct in that its most difficult hole is a par-three, the 217-yard sixth hole. Guarded by sandtraps on the left and a soft front that will keep short tee shots from bounding onto the putting surface, the hole will require many players to reach for a 3-wood to reach the green in regulation. Before tackling the course's challenging terrain, golfers can warm up at the practice green and a driving range with covered hitting bays.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,352 yards from the tips * Four tee options * Scorecard
Though some participants choose to run and others to walk, everybody who participates in the Color Dash experiences a transformation. As participants make their way through the 5K Color Dash and UVSplash courses they are subjected to bursts of color; additional events include Zombies by Color Dash, which adds the undead to the equation. Though the color will wash away, the memories will remain forever in the minds of all participants who aren't goldfish. Proceeds from Color Dash events benefit local children's charities and organizations.

Propulsion Pilates' instructors rely on the familiar Pilates contraptions that fill most studios, but they alter the time-tested workout regimen by incorporating it into a more modern style of circuit training. They combine sequences on the Reformer, Tower, and Wunda Chair with occasional cardio exercises and kettlebell work, creating challenging sessions that manage to refine technique while bolstering strength and flexibility. To keep classes teetering on the cuttingest of edges, the instructors attend at least two Pilates workshops every year to update their mental cache of fitness tricks, but they always leave a little disappointed that a flying Reformer machine appears to be at least another six months off.
