This Year the family went to Colorado for a little fun. I took to the ice this time and left the slopes for day two. Thank goodness I brought the Sony cyber-shot TX20 – it’s not only waterproof and freeze proof but you can drop it and no harm no fowl. Perfect for when your little ones want to use it and you know the inevitable drop is bound to happen! The Osprey at Beaver Creek offers an unforgettable family vacation by creating a modern, luxury hotel experience unlike any other you’ll find in Colorado. They gave us a 4 day complimentary stay which delighted the kids and me. The food at he hotel was so good, especially their bread/fried wrapped asparagus! We went tubing and ice skating and shopped for next year’s ski wear in the village. But I have to say, riding up in the CAT snow plow at NIGHT to BEANOS restaurant/cabin was truly the highlight, it was so fun to be truck up in that big ‘ol machine on the snow at night! With a lift literally right outside our front door, it was so easy to get the kids off to ski school and for mama to hit the slopes.With Elegant amenities, exceptional service, and ski in/out lifts, we’ll be sure to come back for years to come! The staff at Vail Resorts were so accommodating and wonderful.
