Travel Thursday? I guess it’s a Flashback Friday – Breckenridge, CO

11 Nov

I wanted to post this yesterday since Ian is off to Breckenridge this weekend.  It’s such an amazing town nestled in the mountains.  I surprise visited him last year to come support him at his first Dew Tour and in return we got to snowboard a few of the different resorts and scout the town a little bit.  It’s so fun to get to visit all of the mountain towns that he calls “home” for short amounts of time 🙂  Lift tickets can always be expensive so if you are thinking about traveling for skiing/snowboarding, look into discounts online first!  Also if you get an all access seasons pass to Northstar (Lake Tahoe and my home mountain) or Breckenridge (CO), you’ll now have access to a handful of other mountains.  This is HUGE and a nice perk to being a season pass holder.

CO is one of the first places to get enough snow in the winter season to compete so a lot of snow sport athletes come here “pre” season.

It’s very cold in CO so definitely bundle up!

Be careful driving with ice on the roads!  This was the biggest mistake I saw visitors make when in Tahoe.  Don’t worry about being late, every one is on snow time any way 🙂

Some of the Breckenridge runs.

Downtown Breckenridge.  It’s tiny but sooo cute.

Then we headed over to Keystone and in the background you can actually see the Breckenridge runs drawn down the mountainside.

The views are beautiful.

Colorado is a great place to explore for a winter vacation and if you go around the middle to the end of December, you’ll catch the first stop of the Dew Tour which is where all the professionals come out and do what they do best.  There’s so much to do in this tiny town and I’d recommend it to any snow lover 🙂
