Finally, Colorado Ski Dreams becomes a reality. It took some preparation, but we are on the road now, and ready to explore!
Here is a shot cruising along the I70, heading West up and into the mountains.
It is always a pleasure to drive through mountains and deep canyons.
We arrived at our home for the week, Aspen Meadows Resort. The location is just to the side of the village. Aspen Meadows was my pick because I prefer a quiet peaceful location, but within quick striking distance to all the action. And, they claim good wifi, which is a must.
Here is the view outside the window. I love it, a good view provides me plenty of inspiration and fills me with new ideas…just look out and take it all in. Fantastic.
After getting settled, we took the shuttle bus to the village. Aspen has a lovely residential area which we drove through to get to the center of the the village.
Here is a look at the bottom of Aspen Mountain. The real runs lie much further up and out of sight.
Our hotel is actually very close to the village, about a 2km walk max, so we decided to walk back.
Along the way, the sun shone on these aspen trees and lit them up. What a gorgeous glow!
Tomorrow, we hit the slopes.
