Ski Trip to Breck

Posted by on Dec 26, 2012 | 1 comment

Merry Christmas Everyone! Claire is currently down under in Mornington, Australia enjoying some sunshine with her family and I just returned from a ski trip with my family and some of our close friends. We had such an amazing week staying at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, CO. Both of our families have visited various ski towns together over the years and Breck has continued to be our top destination choice. The people are laid back and very friendly and there is loads of shopping (we love the store “Goods”) and restaurants, like the Breckenridge Brewery, Angels Hollow, and Briar Rose to name a few. Oh, and did I mention the INCREDIBLE slopes?! The runs are fun and pretty challenging, although not as difficult as the ones in nearby Vail. Here are a few of the pictures I took on my phone on the trip and some from my time at home (they are all on my instagram account which is Larcrafton if you want to follow me)…let me know if anyone reading this has a favorite ski spot!

 

Adorable shops in downtown Breckenridge :)

We drove over to Vail one day to try out some different slopes.

 

Look at this winter wonderland!!! This is what winter is supposed to look like!

Icicle fights are usually a good idea….

 

I guess this is something you had to be there for…but we thought it was absolutely hilarious to randomly pose like this just to freak people out…We have no shame.

 

There is nothing better than a warm fire after a long day of skiing…except for maybe a little bit of sibling love.

Let us know what you did for Christmas or if you have reccomendations for other great ski spots!
