Valentine Rewind

So this weekend was Valentine’s Day and President’s Day.  For us, that means a weekend away in the snow!

First stop, of course, was Long’s Peak for a few stamps on the card.  We grabbed some not so easy pizza to eat in the car on the way up.  By the way, there was a Pinot barrel aged Nihilist that the Husband said was the best beer they have done there… PERIOD.

In the car on the way up, I asked the Husband if he could browse around for dinner reservations, in a resort town, on a Friday, on a holiday that is based around date nights… He did a great job of pretending that we had no plans.  Because we got up to the mountains and got settled in and headed to Breckenridge.  Broken Compass was first for a Coconut Porter and then we were just going to grab a quick drink at the distillery.  Little did I know that we had reservations.  Amazing goat cheese empanadas, incredible drinks, and a steak for two on Valentine’s Day! Highly recommend!

The lady next to us was very impressed with the Husband’s smokey drink order!

Back in Frisco, we weren’t ready to call it a night (dinner was at 5:30) so we stopped at Highside for a quick beer before curling up for the night with a serial killer documentary and a big bottle of water!

First full day in the mountains means skiing at Copper Mountain.  We were 6 miles away and it took us almost an hour to drive there.  We got parked and geared up and headed out for an amazing bluebird day.

And then German beers and brats at Prosit in Frisco!  Best way to skip the crowds at the resort when you are done skiing!

After a much needed nap, it was off to Bagali’s for wine, cheese, and pasta!

One more day at Copper before the weekend was over.  Much more snow on Sunday and my knees were feeling the powder.  It was a short day for me but the Husband did a few extra runs.  Lunch at 10 Barrel Brewing and then back to Frisco to enjoy a bit of sushi and more relaxing!

Frisco is definitely my favorite weekend away and I can’t wait to enjoy what will hopefully be a snowy season up in the mountains!
