White Week in Colorado & Montana

Park Meadows Mall in Denver. You must love a mall with valet parking, a huge fireplace and a food court with a Paradise Bakery, a place that started in Aspen back in the day.

It's not hard to get in the spirit of a White Christmas when you spend a week in Colorado and Montana. First a day in Vail with friends Pedro and Lourdes Garcia. The slopes were empty and the snow was good. I have always loved the Vail Valley. Fabulous mountain, but the fur coat vibe is not for me. Crested Butte, Telluride and Breckenridge (before the t-shirt shops took over, it really was a Victorian Village, not a faux one) are my style. But the Lionshead Gondola at Vail has world class runs. So that's where I spent one day.
Then a couple of intense days of work in Aurora at Calvary Chapel prepping their new radio station for sign on later this month. Finally, Larissa went back to ABQ for her Celebration of Light while I headed for Montana and Fresh Life Radio work and... the kids!
Alivia with an attitude.
Snow boarding at Vail with Pedro and Lourdes Garcia from Miami. Nice to take a gondola ride between runs where you can relax and hang out.
