We left Denver at 6:15 in the morning and this was our worst drive in recent memory. The snow was falling and it had snowed a lot overnight in the mountains. It was also warm enough to be very wet and slick. We avoided the many accidents coming down from the tunnel but saw dozens […]
I had the pleasure of spending a Wednesday at Keystone and it was a beautiful, warm, lonely (in a good way) day. We had the whole mountain to ourselves. Everywhere from the Outback and Wayback to the patio at Mountain House. It was a beautiful day to be out and not at the office.
Beaver Creek (2014-01-12)
We had a great first day at Beaver Creek this season. After snowing all Friday and receiving 10 inches of powder, we headed up over the Vail Pass on Saturday morning to be greeted with even more snow fall.

We drove from Breckenridge, past Buena Vista and Salida to arrive at Monarch in about 90 minutes. Once we arrived, around 10:00 AM, we […]
