Adventure Time in Keystone with Our Newest Employee!
It was the coldest weekend of February, but that didn't stop us. My sweetheart James and I accompanied by our good friend Donna were headed up to Keystone for an awesome mini vacation! Life has been stressful so a ski getaway was just the ticket to some R&R and fun. Driving up the mountain, we were so excited we could hardly wait, fortunately the drive to Keystone is only just over an hour from Denver.
Next thing we knew, we were pulling into town. To celebrate our arrival and kick off our getaway we stopped at the Goat for a quick beverage . The Goat is a local watering hole serving apres ski to riders, skiers and visitors. Our bartender "Jimbo" was generous and entertaining. What a fun way to start things off!
Next thing you know, it was time to check in to our condo. Summitcove.com booked us into a beautiful 2/bed 2/bath condominium in Red Hawk #2261. Right away we were thrilled to have heated underground parking as it was well below zero outside. The lobby was warm and inviting, and the room itself was perfect from the mountain decor to the blazing fireplace near to sliding glass doors on to our own private deck. Donna and I headed right for the full kitchen and whipped up some warm and comforting chili. Another friend, Paul, was in town from Florida and he joined us for an amazing dinner with good food and great friends. Fortunately our condo had plenty of room for everyone and we slept like babies.
Early the next morning it was off to the slopes! Our condo was just a short walk to the gondola. My favorite thing about skiing Keystone is the long, long slopes which means more time skiing and less time on lifts! Fresh powder and fresh air, nothing else like it in the world! We laughed and laughed when Donna took a spill and looked like a yard sale with skis, poles, hat and gloves spread all over! After a full day of carving up the slopes, we headed straight to the hot tub for a soak. Nothing like hot, swirling water to warm a body up and sooth tired muscles.
We had a blast in Keystone- good friends, good times and incredible memories. Can't wait to do it all again! Wanna come?
