Snow

Yesterday Ian & I decided to hit the slopes for the first time this season since it's been snowing fairly consistently all week in the mountains. We decided to go to Breckenridge & were planning on just parking in the free lot, but it was kind of a hassle with the shuttle so we figured we'd bite the bullet and see how much paid parking was. Given it was a Thursday, it was only $5 AND because of our timing, we somehow got ushered up to the very front of the lot that is right next to the gondola. Totally worth the $5.
On one of the runs we ran into this tree that was covered in snow that was encased in ice, which was really beautiful.
It was an exhausting, but satisfying day out =) As for our weekend plans, we're considering doing some snowshoeing to break in our new snow shoes that we go at the end of the season last year. 

Work is mostly wrapped up for the year so I'm trying to get Christmas stuff done while I still have a little bit of time before the big day =) Other than that, I think we're planning on a quiet holiday with some possible guest-room-painting. Hope everyone has a safe & happy holiday!
