Breckenridge 2017

Breckenridge ski resort

We had an amazing weekend in Breckenridge, Colorado. Breck is one of my very favorite places on the planet and we were with some of my very favorite people {and it happen to be my birthday weekend}! I’ve been going to this very same location since I was little and never tire of this mountain or town. It’s so fun to bring new people to experience its majestic qualities. I always say I’m sadder to leave the mountains than the beach…not sure what that says about me, but it’s the truth.

  Since the good ole college days I’ve been taking annual trips with two of my favorite ladies. We’ve been to some fun spots, with fun groups and made lots of unforgettable memories. But after our girl’s trip to Breck in 2015, we decided it was time to invite the husbands along for this one. It was beyond awesome and all had a great time! The snow, trees, adventure and charmed ski town stole our hearts once again and this time with the fellas that did as well {yes…I’m cheesy}.

There was no hesitation when it came to ma birf-day dinner…Modis is where it’s at! I love this spot and seem to love it more each time I visit. It’s a foodie haven and always jam-packed. I had a fancy ramen noodle dish called Ramen 9602, it’s an impressive concoction of peking duck, grilled quail, poached egg, bacon dashi, hen of the woods mushroom mix, radish, thai basil, bean sprout and scallion.

A few of us made it over to Breck’s newest Peak 6, with an elevation of 12,302 feet it’s an intimidating run for sure. It feels like you’re on top of the world. I do not hold good form making it down that one, but it’s an amazing feeling once you do. This was Mr.T’s first time down that run and he felt the same.
