The last time we visited Crested Butte Mountain, there was an engagement in the family. After a few months and a couple of snowstorms, our family headed back to ski and snowboard.
Last year, if you remember, I experienced a harrowing moment clinging to a bush. LOL. This year the snow was decent after the leanest year in memory, but the food — Wow!
Here are a few highlights:
We had to go back to this Crested Butte fixture. Bonez Mexican Restaurant has a Dia Del Mortos vibe, from the well-placed skulls and tchotchkes to the trinkets tucked into the wall. Ask for the guacamole. Avocados come ready to smash with an enormous mortar and a pestle. So good.
Can you find the skeleton?
We also indulged in apres-ski with a box of Nicky’s Mini Donuts. Yum! Ski hard, eat harder. Wait. That’s not a thing, or is it?
On our last night in CB, we enjoyed a gourmet feast, farm to table, at Sunflower. I loved the intimate and rustic atmosphere and the flavorful dishes. Since they have limited seating, make a reservation in advance.
Its exterior is perfect for selfies!
Once again, the views didn’t disappoint. We had a blast on the mountain.
There’s nothing quite like spring skiing. The sun shines brighter, the air is warmer, and the snow softens from cubular icepack. No. Cubular is not a word, but my knees begged to differ — the snow froze overnight into unyielding chunk in cubular formations.
Our family ski trips are always a blast. I wonder where we’ll go next year?
A final photo from last fall because I’m so serious.
Are you ready for summer? Any April snow coming your way? Do you ever take family trips?
We’re heading out on a road trip tomorrow. More adventures to come!
