Shreddin' Snow

This is for all of you that live where it's warm, brag about your beach vacation, or are on a cruise...**Cough Pamela and Bethany Cough**
It may be cold here...but perception is everything ;)

We drove up Super Bowl Sunday and stayed at the Alpine Slopes Lodge.
{I highly recommend it. Clean, spacious rooms, and walking distance to the ski lifts.}

Then it was up'n at'em for a day full of me trying to keep up with the boys.

I half expected us to stay on the slopes until sunset, but thank GOODNESS we were all whooped before afternoon set in. That meant it was time for Après-ski.

Après-ski (French: After Skiing) refers to going out, having drinks, dancing, and generally socializing after skiing
Basically, the best part of winter sports.

What? You try keeping up with two extremely athletic males.

This is just how we roll in Colorado. Beaches are for sissies.

well, i'm not bragging but i'm only 5 minutes away from the beach in Bali and that the weather here enables you to wear shorts and lose t-shirt at any time of day. haha.

i'm jealous you get snowboarded, though. switching for a week?? or, you can visit me here!

Nikki said...

I always love following your adventures on here :)

Jenn said...

This looks like SO much fun. Can you believe that I've never gone snow boarding OR skiing?? The boyfriend grew up with it, so I have a feeling I'll be trying it at some point in the near future. Let's just hope I don't break something!! :)
Hopefully I'll look as cute as you do, doing it, too! haha

So jealous! I haven't gotten to skiing in years, and the after part is always the best!

The Pink Growl said...

so jealous of your winter getaway! I have only been boarding ONCE this winter and that does not make me a happy girl!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Oooh fun! I've never been skiiing or snow boarding and neither has my husband (which is crazy 'cause he grew up in the north). Anyway, there's a place not too far from us that we are wanting to check out next year! I think it will be a fun (and exhausting) adventure! :)

Jen said...

Jealous! This looks like so much fun! :)

Helene said...

ahhh this is awesome!!! you should totally link this up for travel tuesdays!!

Cece said...

I've never been skiing. I'm terrified I'd break a leg or something. It does look exhausting but fun. And of course cold!

Kristine Foley said...

Looks like so much fun! We have some of the best skiing here in Utah! Or so ive heard... Never actually gone ;)

Emmy said...

Oh I have never tried snow boarding- only skiing. It seems like I would feel more out of control having my legs be stuck together like that.

Glad you had fun and yes it is tiring!

Michael said...

You know, if winter was always magical like that here on the east coast I'd be all for it. Instead we have to HOPE it snows enough to ski/board. But I'm all for the Apres-ski activities!

Nicole said...

Looks like fun! I've never been skiing. I'm going to Colorado this fall but the snow won't be out when I get there.

Nicole said...

I grew up about an hour from the ski hill and we went all the time! Now that I'm in the middle of the plains and flat land, I haven't been in years. This makes me miss it so much! Looks like you guys had a great time!

Jen said...

I LOVE colorado! Would move there tomorrow if I could! Visiting from heart shaped sweat!

That last photos is freaking gorgeous.

All At Once said...

girl I dont know how you do the cold. I mean, it is definitely cold year around here in SF, but nothing like the winters you get in CO. I am dying for some sunshine in my life these days!!!

Jayme and Mendi said...

Looks like you guys had a blast!!! Love all of the photos!!
