Are you planning a ski trip to Colorado? I would highly recommend going to Keystone, Co.
To decide where to stay, I called and spoke with a customer service representative at the following websites:
I did a lot of research to find an economical place to stay…and the final decision was Ski Tip Lodge, Bed and Breakfast. It was the perfect location for us! It was only a 2 minute drive (if that) to the Keystone ski slopes (and there was a free shuttle if you didn’t want to drive.) As described, it was “a charming bed and breakfast with rustic flair.”
Included in the price of the room was a fabulous breakfast every morning!
Another great thing about staying in Keystone, is the ski slopes are open at night. We enjoyed “sleeping in” and not having to rush out to the slopes so it was nice to be able to ski a few extra hours at night. We also bought the three day ski package deal which meant we were able to ski one day at either Vail, Beaver Creek, Breck, or Arapahoe Basin. Although most of the people we talked to tried to talk us out of going to Vail, I wanted to ski at Vail at least once so that is what we did on our last day.
I enjoyed skiing at Vail (it was also our best ski conditions since we got snow that morning) the only bad part was our camera is now lost on the ski slopes of Vail, Co. All of our amazing pictures of us snowmobiling and skiing throughout Colorado are lost. I have just a few pictures I had taken on my iphone as shown in this post.
Another highlight of the trip was ice skating on the Keystone Village Ice Rink, a 5 acre lake 9,321 feet above sea level. I would highly recommend it!!
Overall, we had a wonderful time just the two of us…if we decide to go back with the kids we would love to stay at the Ski Tip Lodge again.
