Our day at Breckenridge

Last week my roommate and I went to Breckenridge. Breckenridge is pretty large ski town about 2 hours away from Colorado Springs. It is the true ski village. When we first arrived we drove through tons of shops and restaurants. I was so excited for lunch! Then we twisted up the mountain passing by skiers and snowboarders. Just a little ways up hidden in between the downhill slopes is the nordic center. We entered this building warmed up by the fire bought out passes and headed out!
We couldn't of picked a better day. Actually everyday is pretty beautiful here! It can be 32 degrees one day and 70 the next! It is pretty neat! The trails at Breckenridge we beautifully groomed and quite expansive. As we slowly got lost and ended up on black diamonds we survived and made it around and back to the nordic center. Where we started actually connects to another center. However it was about 12 miles to the next center so we stayed on our side. For our last looped we skied around this area that was filled with bridges and beautiful homes. I was ready to stay in Breckenridge forever!
But we were hungry and needed to eat. So my roommate and I went to her favorite coffee shop and talked with her "Dirty Chai Guy." He works at Freshies and makes the best dirty chai in Breckenridge and is a local and runs the coffee shop for his friend who also has other food businesses in Breckenridge. Our dirty chai guy recommended for us to go to Eric's for burgers.

It turned out to be a great recommendation and a really cool atmosphere. Our burgers were great. And the onion rings were out of this world! Then we returned to Freshies and got dirty chais! Then we stumbled down to this cookie sandwich shop, called Mary's and got a chocolate chip cookie filled with vanilla cream. I can't remember what it was called...it was something Moo.

After being fully filled with burgers, dirty chais and stuffed cookies we left Breckenridge and headed back to Colorado Springs. I can't wait to go back!
