Keystone – Day 2

As I said in yesterday’s post, we headed to Beaver Creek for the day to explore that mountain.  At first, I was second guessing the decision given the traffic & road conditions.  As we headed through Vail Pass, the road were mostly snow covered and icy and I began to wonder if this was going to be worth it.

However, once we cleared the pass and headed down the western side the road conditions improved and we finished the drive to Beaver Creek.  All told, it took us a little over an hour to get there from Keystone.

Once we arrived, we were all struck by the quaint village that’s at the base of the mountain.  If you’ve ever seen a “ski village” on TV, Beaver Creek lives up to those images.  Keystone is very nice, but doesn’t have the same feel to it.

We geared up, jumped on the lift, and headed for the peak.  The very top of the mountain was mostly a “family zone” with lots of green & blue runs, kid’s areas, and a couple of terrain parks.  We skied the very top most of the day and had a good day on the mountain.

Here’s a shot of the snow sculpture that was at the summit:

One last day on the mountain before we head home.  Oh, and Happy Easter!
