Editor’s note: As part of our Longevity Project: Thriving at Altitude series we celebrate local residents who are making the most of living in Steamboat and Routt County.

Age: 44

Give 3 examples of how this person is thriving at altitude.

Dr. Dallas Bailes is what I would call an elite athlete — a “longevity” physician who trains at Manic almost daily, an avid snowboarder, backcountry explorer and intense mountain biker.

How does this person inspire you?

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Dr. Bailes inspires his staff at Steamboat Emergency Center by hosting wellness challenges, offering paid yoga and Manic training and giving employees monthly bonuses to use toward wellness programs, memberships or equipment of their choice. I can’t think of a more rad and fit 44-year-old in Steamboat.
