The second day of the year was the first day of the ski season for us. After a couple weeks with new snow, it was feeling pretty rough. It’s been a mediocre season in Colorado. The further you go west the less snow you’ll find. Some mountains like Winter Park have been a bit more […]
It had been quite a while since we went skiing. Nearly two full months, actually. And I feel like we completely missed out on the winter season here in Colorado. We visited Breck on Saturday and it was a beautiful, warm, sunny, spring day? The first weekend in March? Not good. Maybe I was just […]
Our first day back on the hill this season was one of the biggest around: Vail! Rachel had never been to Vail and since we were in town for a conference, we made the most of a quiet Friday on the mountain. After a leisurely walk along the creek, we started at the Cascade Hotel’s […]

Ski Patrol started opening up a bunch of terrain Saturday morning and allowing access to fresh, […]
How exciting: Breckenridge will open Peak 6 for the very first time at noon on Christmas Day!
