ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colorado (KUSA) - Just making the trip from Colorado Springs to Arapahoe Basin can be tough for some.

But, when it comes to ski areas and the great outdoors Elsa Bailey has a leg up on most.

"I'm not like most people. I may be weird. But, I'm me," Bailey said.

After all she's been skiing since she was 25, and that was some 75 years ago. She's still at it today - heading to the Basin for her 100th birthday.

Surrounded by the slopes and good friends, this is the outdoor lifestyle Bailey has always loved from her first days on skies when a lift ticket was only $1 and her $7 skis where made of wood.
