Even though Peak 6 is not new to Breck, it was new to us. We haven’t had a chance to visit and check it out ourselves until now. And we had a great time. We started a late, sunny, blue-bird morning heading up the gondola from Main Street and jumped off at Peak 7. From […]
We had another great mid-December day at Beaver Creek. Yesterday was cloudy and snowy. Today was clear with blue skies and sunshine. What a great weekend! We spent most of the day over at Bachelor Gulch and had a great time on the freshly groomed new snow. We even found a few piles of powder […]
