We ended up spending the night at a Walmart. The next morning we were able to find an RV park both close to Denver, and a friends home near Golden. The next week was spent just catching up with old friends, and trying to check out all the skate parks in the area.
When Nick could not contain himself any longer, we finally headed down towards Breck to get some skiing in. We had reservations at Tiger Run Rv Resort, right in Breck, for the months of January and February at a discounted monthly rate. We weren't thrilled with having to pay the $60 + nightly rate to stay a few weeks in December, so we found a cheaper place in Fairplay, about 2o minutes away. We spent our Thanksgiving eating turkey sandwiches on a mountain, and our 30th birthdays skiing with friends. About mid December we stored the trailer in Breck, left our truck at our friends house in Denver, and rented a tiny car to drive back to Ohio for Christmas. The rest of December was spent couch surfing in OH and enjoying family and friends.
The first week of January we headed back to Denver to find out our truck had been towed at our friends house. After freeing it from the impound lot, we headed down to Breck and prayed that Hoosier Pass was not snow covered. Thankfully, it was a sunny day, and we were able to tow the trailer from Fairplay into Breck with no issues.
We spent the months of January and February parked right outside Breckenridge, near Frisco. A former Special Ed. teacher, Britt was really hoping to secure a job working with kids for the two months in CO. Luckily, Breck Ski Resort had an opening for a preschool teacher, and Britt was able to start right away. Both of us had already bought Epic Ski Passes for the season, but with Britt's new gig, we were able to get refunded for the 2 passes, and only pay $40 for Nicks.
Our time in Breck flew by. Between skiing Vail, Beaver Creek, Breck, A Basin, Copper, and Keystone, snowshoeing with friends on the Colorado Trail, climbing Mt. Elbert, winter camping, building a winter fort in the woods, hot tub hangouts, snowmobiling, and taking part of Ullr Fest, CO was pretty epic, and its going to be a tough winter to beat.
We are hesitant to leave, but are excited to get back on the road and check out the pow pow in Park City.
