Yeehaw! Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures Steamboat is Here

Mort and I couldn’t wait to show you our new book!  It’s all about the adventure we had in Steamboat Springs, CO.

The real book is coming, but here is a preview that you can flip through with your parents!

Mort and I had so much fun on our adventure in Steamboat. We don’t want to tell you EVERYTHING, but what I will say is that we took selfies with Olympians, met real Olympians and relaxed with our stepmom, dad and li’l sis in Strawberry Park hot springs!

Did you know there are more winter Olympians from Steamboat than any other town in North America? My stepmom told us there must be something in the water. So Mort and I are pretty sure, because if you drink lots of it, you could POSSIBLY become an Olympian too.

Check out the flipbook below!

Then, save the date for our official launch in Steamboat Springs on December 4th at The Depot from 5 to 7pm. The children of Steamboat Springs that illustrated the book will be there signing the books and their art work will be on display.  Mort and I can’t wait to see them all again!

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!
