I dropped Dennis off at Winter Park resort and then I went Cross Country skiing at YMCA of the Rockies, Snow Mountain Ranch. It was a fantastic day for skiing. I used mostly green wax with a tiny bit of blue extra.

Climbergirl Skiing Snow Mountain Ranch
On Saturday, Dennis and I drove up to Winter Park for an awesome bluebird day!

We went to Rise and Shine bakery to start the day out right with a hearty breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised to see the place has expanded and, even better, we were seated at a warm table in the back. It used to be really cramped and cold no matter where you got seated! The food was as good as ever and we left there with smiles and full bellies.

Snowboarding – Granby Ranch

I had been to Winter Park with Dennis the weekend before Christmas, and had a blast boarding there. They have a plethora of intermediate runs, and lots of nice snow. The lifts were fast, and the tickets affordable. Winter Park itself as a town is a cute little village, so it’s perfect for a weekend getaway.

In any event, since we were up on Saturday snowshoe hiking, we figured we would check out Granby Ranch . The Granby Ranch resort is a great place for families as all the beginner/intermediate stuff is on one mountain and all the advanced runs are on another. (more…)
