That’s a Wrap on Ski Season

It’s the last day of March and that means ski season is over for most, and winding down for the rest. I have said it so many times: I just had the best winter of my life spent at home because I got to ski so much. Thanks Dad!  We started the ski season off… Continue reading That’s a Wrap on Ski Season

What it’s really like to ski during the COVID-19 pandemic

I want to preface this post by saying I was super nervous to ski during the pandemic. It turned out to be a lovely time. It’s winter and there’s only one good thing that comes with that: ski (and snowboard) season.

Steamboat, Colorado: Good Eats

Well Steamboat, you have been good to me. Three days of nearly perfect weather, great snow coverage and beautiful times have come and gone, but the memories live on (thanks to my new Steamboat apparel…kidding).

Steamboat, Colorado Day 2: Hot Springs

It turned out to be natural springs, and hence, the two words were combined to create Steamboat Springs. I got to experience the hot… Continue reading Steamboat, Colorado Day 2: Hot Springs

Steamboat, Colorado Day 2: Cowboys and Giants

It’s the second day of skiing and I can now confidently say that Steamboat is my favorite skiing destination.

I am visiting with my father and grandfather, and my Colorado family met with us for the day, so it was a first day filled with excitement for sure. I am staying at… Continue reading Steamboat, Colorado Day 1: A Serious Resort

Frisco, Colorado Day 2: Skiing in a Snow Globe

Day two of skiing gave some of the best conditions I’ve had (I definitely said that last year). Similarly to my second day of skiing at Park City, I thoroughly enjoyed my second day in Colorado at Keystone Mountain. I walked outside Thursday morning surprised to see about five inches of snow on the ground… Continue reading Frisco, Colorado Day 2: Skiing in a Snow Globe
