Back home again

I'm back. Last 2 days of skiing were pretty hard - snowed all day and there was lots of fresh, ungroomed powder. Made my legs hurt, but my knees did ok and didn't get too sore. I need to exercise more next year (I always tell myself this but rarely actually do it). Luckily tho, it stopped snowing Friday night so we had an easy drive back to Denver with no problems. Next post ..... on to Spain.

Almost time to go home

Tues pm
Really nice snow & weather. Snowed hard yesterday & sunny today. The Hyatt has a free s'more bar next to the slopes every afternoon @ 4 with dark & milk choc hersheys. It's really neat to hang out there after skiing & roast marshmallows. Just can't say enough good things about this place.

Thurs pm
Snowed hard all day today - got really tired because of all the fresh snow & it was hard to see but we had fun anyway. We're all 5 of us skiing together for the most part, but they're having to wait for me a lot. I was keeping up until today but am wearing out some. It's supposed to snow a lot tonight & tomorrow too so it might be another hard day tomorrow. Last day tho, so I'll have to make the most of it. OK, talk to ya'll later.

Ski report Sunday

Had a great day of skiing today. Now, this is what a ski valet should be like. They took our skis outside and we were just steps away from the enclosed - private - gondola. When we got back, we skied right up to the valet guy and he came over and undid our bindings for us and we didn't even have to touch our skis. Wow.

The skiing was really nice too - great conditions, sunny, cold but not too. Very uncrowded today. We ate lunch at the base of the mountain right at the lift and they had tables with place settings and came out and took our order and delivered food - no stomping inside and waiting in line - and the prices, while high, were not any higher than normal ski food is. This is a pretty darn nice place.

Here in Colorado

Hey everyone, we made it to Colorado OK yesterday. The Hyatt here at Beaver Creek is much fancier that the one in Breckenridge. The condo is really big and the rooms are large. I'm sitting here in the room this morning waiting for everyone else to get up and get going - don't wanna go out by myself the first day. Looks like great snow out there - we have a great view of the mountain from the room. More later.

Here is a picture Greg took from the condo.

Off to Colorado

Getting reading to leave for Colorado. I'm flying this year instead of driving since Melissa's not going. It'll be a lot quicker trip. Hopefully, we won't have any trouble landing at Denver. I'm renting a car with the Greeson's and we'll meet Azure in Denver and drive to Beaver Creek.
