Why Colorado … Impromptu Ski Trips

We originally started this blog not just to share house progress, but to also chronicle our time in Colorado and why we moved here.  Of course, building a house takes A LOT of time and effort, so sometimes we don’t get a chance to take advantage of what this state has to offer.  However last week we decided we’d better try to get up to the slopes for a last day of skiing, since it looks like spring is here to stay and most ski areas are closing soon.

So, why Colorado … two hours from home to ski lift!!

On I-70 about half way to Copper Mountain.

The conditions in the morning were not too bad.  Short lift lines and sometimes we had runs all to ourselves!

Beautiful views and empty runs.

We took an extra long lunch break because the sun just felt so good!

Unfortunately the sun was doing a number on the snow too.  It was getting harder and harder to ski through the slush, so we decided to call it a day early in the afternoon.  No biggie – we had already gotten our money’s worth out of our season passes, so we didn’t feel like like we had to stay even if the conditions weren’t great.

Best thing was, since we had to drive through Denver, we could take care of some errands on the way home.

Scored a clearance Expedit shelving unit for our master closet!

So why Colorado … skiing and IKEA in the same day – CRAZY!
