Steamboat Holiday Festival: AWESOME!
Steamboat Holiday Festival: AWESOME!


Mort and I had an AWESOME time at the Steamboat Holiday Festival put on by Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporations. Santa on horseback was so cool. We had no idea he could ride. Even his reindeer showed up for some holiday fun.




Mort and I rocked out in front of the stage while Face sang their harmonies. They were awesome. After that, Elyssa, the author of “Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures Steamboat” read our book on the stage with all of the children. The kids loved it. How AWESOME is that!


We had to practically drag Mort the Moose out of there. He didn’t want to leave. But we really had to get to sleep early so that we could be ready for another BIG day on Mount Werner.





Thank you to all of the people of Steamboat for making our visit rock!

Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures, For Adventuring Kids Like You!
Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures, For Adventuring Kids Like You!

Hey Mort, can you believe it’s been only 1 year since we began our adventures!

So far we have worked with 101 kids age 7-18. They are all published illustrators! Holy moly.

We have also published 5, yes 5 adventures through our books, “Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures.” We have adventures in Vail, Beaver Creek, Steamboat, Breckenridge and we also translated our Vail book into Spanish. This has been AWESOME!

Every kid should read our adventures so they can see all the fun things that we do in all these fun mountain places.

Hey Mort, what is your favorite part so far? I like catching big air, going in the hot springs, looking for gold and of course all of the restaurants and candy shops that we visit.


Oh, you say that you love riding the horses, meeting Olympic Athletes, skiing in the kid zones and fly fishing. Awesome!

There are so many things that we have done… and so many more that we are planning on doing. We can’t wait for our next adventure.

What about learning to snowboard? All of our instructors have been EPIC!

Mort, did you know that we also are donating a portion of the proceeds of our books to local charities in those resort areas! The only thing more awesome than having fun is giving back.

We are learning so much about all the charities. They help so many people. We are happy to donate to: The Youth Foundation, the Education Foundation of Eagle County, The Literacy Project of Eagle County, the Steamboat Springs Arts Council and Breckenridge Creative Arts.


Don’t tell Mort this but guess what? We have Mort the Moose dolls for everyone. If you are like me and love adventure and having fun you will love Mort the Moose. He is my partner in fun and my best friend. We do everything together.

We hope you enjoy our adventures! Please let us know if you enjoy what we are doing. We can’t wait to share our next adventure!

We are busy checking out all of the cool stuff for kids in Breckenridge. Mort and I spend a lot of time Googling. One place we DEFINITELY can’t wait to see is the Haunted Forest in Breckenridge next winter! We hear there is a GIANT spider and lots of crazy stuff to see.


Since we are in-between adventures we thought we would tell you some stories about our last visit to Beaver Creek. Here is one.

Just a few weeks ago we met with our number 1 fan,  Zander.

Zander had come to see us at 2015 with his Mom, but Mort just missed him. Mort was so upset we promised Zander’s Mom that we would come to Zander’s school the next day.

We showed up to surprise Zander the next morning at Mountain Montessori. Yahoo!  It was so fun. Mort and I took a lot of pictures and signed Zander’s book.


We wanted to say thank you to Zander and his class for being so nice to Mort and me.  So THANK YOU Mountain Montessori!  We can’t wait to come visit again.
