Skiing Breckenridge

You can have a GREAT time skiing in Breckenridge, CO.  This trip was in early February 2012. My daughter, son-in-law and their two young sons made the drive to Breckenridge. Check out this view:


I wasn't on the trip so she took lots of pictures so I could share them with you.


Take note of the trees on this day, you don't see any snow on the branches but wait till you look further down the page.


These are skiers by the ski lift. If you aren't familiar with skiing, You can ride the lift up the mountain and ski down. Then keep doing this repeatedly until you are tired.

Their four year old went to ski school while their and he was skiing the first day. By afternoon, he was on the mountain. We are talking the bunny slopes. 




Now the pictures are going to change. It snowed! These are shots while it was snowing so visibility wasn't great but still gorgeous.





Look at the snow on the trees then compare it to images 3, 4, and 5 above. Isn't this a beautiful image with trees covered in snow. What a change a snowfall can make.


Do you see the skier on the lift below? He's in the center of this image in a red jacket. It's easy to overlook him.


Do you want to go skiing after looking at these pictures or maybe just read a book in the lodge by the fire and look out at the skiers occasionally. The view is still awesome whether you are skiing or just looking. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Wow! Amazing photos!

(Yesterday, you asked about the blue eggs under my cloche. For the life of me, I can't remember where I bought them. If it comes to me, I'll let you know. I do know I bought them last year. I'm thinking maybe Michaels but I'm not sure.)

I loved this post! My kids and grandkids live in Colorado, yet I have not had a chance to go skiing with them as yet! Someday soon I will, hopefully!

Awww, love it! So glad to see Breckenridge has some snow. We live in CO and were up there in January and it was very GREEN. Great for July, not for January. Loved seeing the photos.

Hugs,
Judy

The little ones at ski school are adorable! Wish I had learned when I was that age.

Hello.
Snow falling & settling always look beautiful, but that's as far as it goes for me. I am not a skier or one for heights & I can't imagine being way up there looking way down there! Smiling...the kids all look like they know what they're doing.
Awesome photos!
Thanks for sharing.
