Aspen, Colorado

January 27, 2019 – February 1, 2019

Today we flew to Aspen, Colorado for our annual ski trip. Our friend Nano Lopez was meeting us there which was cool. I absolutely love Aspen. This was the first time we were there and it will be added to our yearly ski trip.

We normally go to Utah but we figured to branch out and add Colorado to our itinerary as well.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming – 2018 Ski Trip

January 23rd – 27th, 2018

Today we drove from Utah to Wyoming. We love skiing in Jackson Hole the only thing that we don’t like is how dodgy the weather is. In January the temperature can drop to the single digits other than that we enjoy the town and the mountain.

Other than the drive is beautiful!

If you scroll down below I have posted videos of Dog Sled Racing. It was the first time John and I both got a chance to see it.

Park City, Utah

January 10th – 16th, 2016
Today we drove from Jackson Hole to Park City, Utah and we met up with our friends Nano and Mariya they flew in from Washington State. We had a great week with them I didn’t ski at all John, and Nano skied every day. Mariya and I had fun just hanging out, and we met up with John and Nano for lunch every day. There was only one day I skied, and it was at Deer Valley which was nice because it’s a ski only mountain no snowboarders.

Keystone, Colorado

February 14, 2010
This ski trip was different, but in a good way we were going with our daughter Alex. We arrived in Keystone, Colorado and drove to our hotel by the time we got there it was late, so we just got settled in and went to have a quick dinner and get ready to ski in the morning.

February 15, 2010
John is an expert skier, and Alex is outstanding also, she’s been skiing since she was five, so she’s had 11 years of practice. I have only been skiing for five years. I decided to take a lesson which is good because trying to teach yourself isn’t good you end up learning bad habits that are extremely hard to break. After skiing we had dinner, and the usual get ready for skiing the next day.

February 16, 2010
Today we decided to drive to Vail, Colorado.  Instead of skiing, I made an appointment at a spa for a massage (Now that’s my kind of skiing shhh don’t tell John.) Either way, it was good John had a chance to bond with Alex. They only skied half the day so that we had an opportunity to explore vail and we were lucky enough to see a Mardi Gras parade which was fun and colorful.

February 17, 2010
Today we stayed in Keystone I skied my usual until lunch and John and Alex skied the whole day since today was the last day. After skiing, we ate dinner and then went back to the hotel to pack and got ready to fly home tomorrow.
