Winter Park Resort Ski Trip

Back in the beginning of our relationship, Brandon and I would go for ski trips around Valentine’s Day. After the demise of the Ski Train, that kind of stopped.

However, we’ve managed to revive the tradition the last two years. Last year, we spent the night post-skiing and we stayed at a lodge in town. This year, we went up the night before skiing and stayed a short gondola ride away from the base – a much better option.

If you talk to a Coloradoan who skis, we all have our favorite resort. I’ll admit that I haven’t skied too many places, but after growing up on Winter Park and loving it, why would I WANT to ski anywhere else?
