Winter Park, Colorado

Early Thursday morning, we headed out for an adult trip to Colorado. We planned a trip this summer with our island besties and we were so excited to get back on the mountain and to spend a few days with our friends.
We landed in Denver, met up with Andy and Alissa (they arrived a little bit before us) and then we made the drive to Winter Park. On the way there, we stopped at the best pizza place! You eat the pizza and then you put honey on the crust. Delicious!!
We made it to our condo mid-day on Thursday and we were able to get groceries and our skis/board so we would be ready for the weekend. Jason snowboards and I ski so we had to make sure that we were prepared and well fitted.
We woke up bright and early on Friday so we could get on the mountain. It has been about 12 years since we've been on a big mountain so we were a little nervous but we both picked it up pretty quickly.
It snowed on us all day Friday...the views weren't the prettiest but the snow was amazing! We were on the mountain all day and then we headed to the hot tub. It was a great ending to the day.
Frank and Jess arrived around 8pm and my sister and her family arrived around midnight. Ange and Chris usually go skiing and when they heard that we were going to Winter Park, they wanted to join in the fun. I'm so glad because I missed seeing those crazy Comptons!
The crew was all together for a full two days of fun!

We had three full days of skiing/boarding and we couldn't have asked for better weather or a better time with our friends.
We left Colorado early on Monday so sore, tired and already planning the next ski trip. There is something so invigorating and exciting about skiing on a big mountain, especially when you are going down with your best friends and family.
I'm so thankful that my mom was able to keep the kids for us and that we have the opportunity to go away together to reconnect. The mountains are good for the soul...I can't wait to head back next year!
