Slopeside Steamboat

Remember when I went to Steamboat in December? It was a pretty great trip. Three weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go back!! Once again, it was so much fun!!! The last time I was in Steamboat, only 1/3 of the terrain was open, and this time, the whole mountain was open!!  I went with two college friends (now Denver friends), and we had a blast exploring the mountain.

Steamboat Ski Weekend

Last week, I took a day and a half off of work, picked up my friend Christy at the airport, and we headed to Steamboat Resort in beautiful Steamboat Springs, CO. The late snows in Colorado have made the ski resorts a little bare, but over the last couple weeks, all of the resorts have been working hard to open as much terrain as possible. When we started skiing on Friday there were 35/135 trails open at Steamboat. They even opened one of the largest lifts the morning we got there. Storm Peak Express, I love you!

Fall 2016, Rocky Mountain National Park

Last week, I made a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). I had a friend from college in town, and we decided to check it out.

We went to Cub Lake , also check out- RMNP Hiking Trails. It took about one hour and 45 minutes from Denver to drive to the trail head. RMNP always feels like a long drive from Denver, but its pretty reasonable. (more…)
