Beautiful day at Key Stone Resort! Not too sketchy, not too hard… Just beautiful and leisurely.
Hope you’re enjoying your Fridays, friends! TGIF!
We tried to make it to Silverthorn (from Denver) lastnight, but that was a big, fat fail. With the amount of snow and pile-ups on i70, there was no way.
We finally made it up earlier this afternoon and are now hanging out in a beautiful condo off of Ryan Gulch Rd.
Where to? Breck? Keystone? Beaver Creek? The opportunities are abundant out here! Where are you headed this weekend? Hopefully somewhere outside that’s inspiring.
Once again, we rented a few pairs of snowshoes from REI (roughly $25 bucks per pair for the weekend) and made the run from Denver to Squaw Pass.
These are the same directions for heading to Echo Lake, however we stopped about 12 miles early at a parking area off of the Pass in front of a large, open grassy area.
We parked, got our gear on, (visit our first Snowshoeing Adventure post to learn what gear will keep you warm and happy!) and headed across the Pass from where we were parked, and picked up a trail in between the cabins that lie a little off of the pass (you can see them from the road).

This Snowshoeing Adventure began with this beautiful, motivating, downtown Denver sunrise you see pictured to the left. I grabbed my coffee, my gear, put on some great tunes, and headed over to pick up my good friend, Kathleen. Continue reading
We’ve only been out twice this season, but both times have been awesome!
Our first time out, we headed to Breckenridge to teach our friend, Jeff, how to snowboard. An avid skier, Jeff was ready to change it up. Luckily for us, he was going doing the hill by the end of the day! If you’re thinking of teaching a friend, bring ’em to Breck – their beginner’s area is top notch, easy to get to, and not super crowded.
Yesterday, we headed to Keystone, which was pretty good. Great weather, that’s for sure! Unfortunately, the snow felt pretty packed like we’re used to back in Michigan, which called for some sketchy areas. We’re excited to head back after this upcoming Tuesday when it looks like there will be more snow.
Steve hit Beaver Creek last Thursday and it was all powder with no one there. Just a reminder – try to use your Epic Pass during the week when the traffic is at a minimum both on the roads and the slopes!
Happy 2014 – 2015 Skiboard season to all of our friends, near and far. Can’t wait to see all of your shredding pictures.
Can’t beat the holidays? That’s cool – join ’em. Why not? Tons of holiday events around Denver are *FREE* and actually quite delightful. Attending them can lift your spirits and get you back to that kiddie Christmas-like feeling you had when first watching Miracle on 34th Street.
Here’s 5 totally cheesy and totally rad things to do to get into the Christmas Spirit in Denver, Colorado. Did we mention they’re free?… Continue reading
