You just have to take a trip down memory lane when your son becomes a teenager.
I know, weird right? Why go to a ski resort for summer travel? The thing is, many of us locals head up into the mountains in the summer to because there are lots of fun things to do this time of year too. When we visited Keystone during Spring Break, we hit the end of winter season but also got a preview of things to come. There is so much!
Here are the "regular" activities that are available on a daily basis:
Mountain BikingThis is the number one reason (based on my non-scientific research) that people go to Keystone in the summer. You take a lift up and ride a bike down... or try easier cruising trails as a family.
Horseback RidingI am a big fan of riding horses up in the mountains. You hang out with these beautiful animals (plus your family!) and get gorgeous scenic views.
I know I met Gabrielle Blair at SXSW Interactive. It was really early in this blog, and she had Kirtsy with Laura and Laurie. I loved all three of them instantly and I'm proud to call all of them good friends. Then there was the time that Gabby lived in Colorado and I got to see her (slightly) more often - but most times, I just stalk her online like everyone else does. Gracious. That is one word that I have seen used to describe Gaby's book, but I would say that is pretty much her whole being. If anyone can float around the room and make you more calm with her presence, it's her. So *OF COURSE* her book feels just like that too. Even though you marvel at how she manages life with six kids. And creates such a beautiful site. With all those lovely photos. And kick-butt ideas.
We usually do more on Christmas Eve than Christmas Day, so computers are about to be shut down and cooking to commence. Lots of German food including rouladen, dumplings, red cabbage and... you know, that super traditional German food, pumpkin pie. Our families are back…
