Keystone, CO: Spring Break 2018

This year, we traded in our swimsuits for snow boots during Spring Break! We headed west to Keystone, Colorado for some mountain fun. I admit that it was not my first choice for springtime...given that we have had such a cold & snowy March here in Kentucky, I was itching for the warmth and sunshine. But, CO did not disappointment as they were serving up sunshine, unusually warm season temps for them, and all the family activities that you can imagine.





When we arrived, we had a late afternoon sleigh ride through the mountains to a hidden cabin. There we were greeted with vegetable stew, buttermilk biscuits, and hot cocoa. We enjoyed a home-cooked meal and warm apple pie while being serenaded via guitar.
It was such a great way to kick-off our trip and we all truly enjoyed ourselves!













 


The second day we hit the slopes! The weather was gorgeous and just the perfect temps for spring skiing! Adelaide and Aspen had a blast at ski school while Brighton & Salem played with friends at the Children's Center. Ryan & I snowboarded the mountains for a few hours. 

Breathtaking views from above and all the way down...







Day three was our coldest day, so we bundled up and tried out some of the wintery activities including ice skating, sliding down the snow fort, riding the Gondola, and snow tubing! We also got to meet one of the Avy Dogs who helps rescue people that might get trapped in the snow.
 

 






Our last day was spent soaking in the atmosphere one last day atop the mountain and inside the village. We spent lots of time cuddling, laughing, and just simply hanging out!
 





If you are ever looking for the perfect family spot, Keystone is your place! It truly has enough for all ages; babies up to adults. It is a breeze to get to and has everything you can need or imagine!
