Christmas on Breckenridge

Look at how bare the trees and the mountains in the back are. Usually everything would be under a blanket of white

For all our hand wringing over the dismal snowfall this season, we actually had three really good days skiing. The snow was crunchy but thankfully not icy.

We spent all 3 days on Breckenridge since it looked like it had the most snow of all the resorts in the area. Plus, we had prime parking spots that were only a few feet away from the lifts.

The days got progressively warmer. On Friday, it was bracingly cold with temperatures in the low teens. By Christmas day, it was warm enough (40 degrees) for us to lunch al fresco under the sun.

Too bad we have to leave tomorrow! Although I was really fatigued by the end of the runs yesterday, today I felt I could ski for a couple more days straight. Oh well. Here’s hoping for a ton of powder for when we return in February!
