Still a couple of bedrooms left at $70 per night if any locals want to come ski for a day or two or the whole week. Or come join us for a day.

Call John Morgan @ 770-823-1713 if interested.

Live Long And Prosper! 🖖🏻

Default Beaver Creek

...but the snow is good all over Colorado. In fact, it's dumping out my office window, as I write this. The group is planning to visit several resorts while in Colorado, since there's about 30 to choose from!

Ummmm, well I guess my bifocals need upgrading.
Glad the snow is coming down. I've been going to Colorado to ski for many years. The last 10 to 15 years have been really dry ones which has had an effect on the snow. Gives us something to look forward to!!

The second annual VAF ski trip is now history. Snow conditions were great with mild weather and a 7 inch dump of powder mid week. Skiers were Dave Syvertson ( RV 10 builder Houston) Gordon Fowlkes ( RV 10 builder Atlanta) with his Wife Laura and son Jon, John Morgan ( RV 6A driver Atlanta) John's daughter Kimberly and friend Jennifer from Boston. Laura's cousin Deb from North Carolina came along to help with the cooking and all important shopping!
Mike Rettig ( RV 10 builder from Denver ) joined us the first night for dinner and pool then skiing at Breckenridge on Sunday. We also skied at Vail twice, Beaver Creek twice and Copper Mountain.
All said it was a great trip with the rookies skiing the blues with confidence by the end of the trip. More pool shooting and less RV talk this year so we need more RV builders next year. Next years date is the third week of January again so make plans to join us. Nick Ahlen says he is coming back next year, so he says.

PS: I declare myself king of the pool table but I will probably get an argument from Mike and Gordon!

Default Wish I could have been there!

Gordon, didn't know you were a skier.

Wish you could schedule it when my kids are out of school.

With the 10 done, we bought Summit passes this year. Was out Thanksgiving week (snow was very sparse). Will be back for spring break, was planning on another long weekend in the middle, but the doctor said no skiing for 3 months after I took a fall at keystone and lacerated my spleen and kidney. (all well now)

7 hours and 1 fuel stop to Denver in the 10 with a headwind, 5.5 hours back with a 40 knot tail wind. Great service and good rental car rates at Front Range Airport.
