skiing and sledding in steamboat springs

A few weeks ago, Dan’s mom and brother flew into town and we all made our way up to Steamboat Spring for a weekend of wintery fun. We rented a house on the shuttle line, and thanks to Grandma’s babysitting, we were able to get on the slopes for a full day of runs!

We also drove out to Saddleback Ranch, which was even more fun than I’d anticipated; us “big kids” had a blast tubing while Grandma kindly watched the littles! Cameron worked hard to walk in the snow while his sister contemplated tubing for a moment but opted to climb a snow “mountain” instead.

In between outings, we enjoyed laughs, the hot tub, wine, cinnamon rolls, card games, enchiladas, beer, walks… It’s always nice to “get out to the mountains.” My, how Coloradan we’ve become.
