Skiing in Breckenridge
February 1, 2010
I love living in a state that is full of fun things to do in every season of the year. Last weekend we went to Breckenridge and stayed for a couple days. Friends of ours from Colorado Springs were there, too, so it was great to have dinner with a big group of friends at the brew pub Sunday night, and then ski all day Monday.
After five years of living in Colorado, I’m getting pretty good at this skiing thing. I love to rush down hills that used to scare me when we first moved here. I’m still a slow and cautious skier compared to most people, but I like to think of myself as a badass daredevil. At least my fitness is pretty good, because I didn’t get tired nearly as quickly as I used to. Now I can’t wait to go back next week!On a random note, I discovered Monday that if you type “breck” into an iPhone, it auto-corrects it to “Breckinridge.” That would be really cool, if it wasn’t spelled wrong. Technology is funny.
A coyote ran across the ski slopes under our lift! It was really fast, so I was proud of myself for getting a photo of it! I had to rip off my gloves and unzip my pocket to get one quick frame of the coyote before it ran into the trees. I ended up dropping a glove in the process, though! Fortunately a nice person found it and turned it in at the base of the ski lift.
Peak 7 is my favorite part of Breckenridge. I love the rolling hills, trees, and smaller crowds. I could have done without the wind, though!Next week: Vail!
