Our Trip to Colorado 2010

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5 | Day 6

Day 1 - February 25, 2010

So today we left from Columbus to arrive in Denver. Smooth flight, on time, minimal waiting at the airport for bags and a fairly easy rental car pick up got us on the road to the mountains right on time!

Day 2 - February 26, 2010

Our first day of skiing. We chose to ski Keystone to get our legs under us. There were some thrills and spills, but overall a really good day of skiing. Afterward, we soaked in the hot tub and awaited Tyler Root's arrival from Denver. When he did get here we ate and then headed out for the evening. Good times at the Goat!

Day 3 - February 27, 2010

Today we skied Breckenridge and everyone loved it! Clint really was increasingly more confident on his skis and it showed as he was excited to ski more varied terrain and was really happy to have skied here. We skied nearly a full-day while Tyler took snowboard lessons.

Day 4 - February 28, 2010

Today most of us took the day off and took a look around the Keystone Village. After watching the US/CAN Hockey game, we headed out in the snow to see Breckenridge. Had a good dinner and some fun at Downstairs at Eric's, a local favorite.

Day 5 - March 1, 2010

On Monday we skied Keystone. Overnight, Keystone received 6" of fresh powder and throughout the day it continued to snow. Anne, Clint and Abbey skied the front while Brian ventured to the North Peak and the Outback to get into the knee-deep powder. After a short break at the Summit House, everyone skied together for the rest of the day. Fantastic conditions and a small crowd allowed all to hone their skills and enjoy the day.

Day 6 - March 2, 2010

For our last day of skiing, we chose to go back to Breckenridge, again the crowds were minimal which allowed us to conquer many blue runs and even a blue/black called "Frosty's Freeway". We skied runs on Peaks 7, 8, 9 and 10. By the end of another full day, everyone's confidence was high but at the same time sad to leave the mountains, eager to return.
