Ski Weekend in Breckenridge, CO

Hi, y’all! I’m so happy to finally share about our ski weekend to Breckenridge, Colorado! We went a couple weekends ago but came home to #Snowpocolypse2021 and it’s taken a bit to get back to normal… whatever that is these days! 😆

This ski trip has been on the books since OCTOBER… so it’s been a few months coming! That also gave me time to prepare my mama heart for leaving both of my babies for 4 days/3 nights. At the time of the trip Kaiser was almost 5 months and Emmett was just over 22 months – aka BABIES! Leading up to the trip I wasn’t really nervous but I immediately missed them like crazy when I landed in Denver.

My parents came in town Wednesday night and stayed through Sunday until we got back. Bryan and I packed everything up and loaded up the truck the day before because we had to head out the door at 5 a.m. on Thursday morning.

Flying from Houston to Denver only took about 2 hours and I’m a BIG TIME NAPPER on flights so I was out the whole ride. After we got the rental car, we ate at Sassafras before driving 2 hours to Breckenridge. Y’ALL… WHEN I SAY THIS FOOD WAS DELICIOUS, I MEEEEAN IT WAS DELICIOUS! 🤤 They serve comfort food and it hits the freaking spot. AND their Bloody Mary was on point!

The rest of the weekend was pretty much spent on the slopes or in the cabin. We went downtown the first day to get our ski gear and groceries but the weather on Friday and Saturday night wasn’t the greatest so we just made our own fun at the cabin – taboo, dinner, drinks and good company.

DAY-TO-DAY TIMELINE

THURSDAY

Early

Get up and hit the road to Hobby Airport. We flew Southwest and it was fairly easy to check-in, check our bags, go through security and get to the gate. I grabbed the largest coffee I could get from Dunkin’ Donuts right before we took off but should’ve just waited because I napped the entire way.

10:15 a.m.

Hit up Sassafras for some delicious brunch after landing in Denver

1:05 p.m.

Arrive at rental. This place was the perfect house for a big group that wanted to hang out at the house. It had 4 rooms (sleeps 12!), a big kitchen, a hot tub, cozy living room and game room.

4:00 p.m.

Drive into town to buy groceries, rent ski equipment and check out downtown Breckenridge

6:00 p.m.

Make pizza for dinner at the house

He was so cute but we kept our distance – you never know how wild animals are going to act.

WHAT I PACKED

As usual, I OVERPACKED! Would you imagine that?! haha! I really didn’t need a lot of the outfits I brought because we didn’t end up going out. The ski clothes I wore came down to:

  • 2 pairs of leggings (one pair for each ski day)
  • 2 long-sleeve shirts (one for each ski day)
  • 2 sweaters (one for each ski day)
  • 1 gator
  • 1 waterproof jacket
  • 1 toque
  • 1 pair of waterproof gloves
  • 1 pair of ski goggles

From there I just needed an outfit for traveling back in, a swimsuit, clothes to wear around the house, pajamas and underwear. I didn’t end up wearing makeup other than mascara because of the mask situation and didn’t really do much to my hair because I wore a toque during the day and threw it up at night.

COVID IMPACTS

We had to wear masks in the airport and while we were in line to ski. There was also a “mask zone” (I’ve never heard of this before) for downtown Breckenridge because that area is fairly crowded.

That’s about it about our ski weekend at Breckenridge! Hope y’all enjoyed!
