Ski Area

Ok, we've all tried the major ski resorts and they can absolutely be an awesome time! If you're interested in something a little more local this is a very popular ski area for locals who want to avoid the hustle and bustle, long lift lines, and high fees of the major resorts.

Ok, I have lived here for 15 years. Here is my favorite secret. If you love breakfast burritos you've gotta hit this spot! It's open 24 hours and two minutes from the house. These guys are literally in the back, in the kitchen cooking 24 hours a day. When you are at the drive-up window tell them the following... 'I've heard from Josh that you guys make the best breakfast burrito in Colorado!?'' If you say this I kid you not you will get huge, hot bacon and egg-filled breakfast burrito that will knock your socks off. Complete with homemade red and green sauce on the side. Try it and let me know what happens :)
