We spent the second day of our vacation snowboarding at Beaver Creek mountain to add in a change of scenery. A great thing about heading to the Vail area for winter activities is that a lift pass purchased at Vail can be used at four other Colorado resorts; Beaver Creek is one of those and only about a 15 minute drive from Vail.
Just like the previous day, we woke in the morning and spent the entire day snowboarding until the lifts closed, and then changed clothes in the lodge before heading out to make the most of the remaining sunlight. The weather was mild enough that I wore my black and tan plaid coat (worn here), which isn’t very heavy, with a chunky turtleneck sweater and coated pants and stayed warm and comfortable.
Another thing I love about both Vail and Beaver Creek is that all of the pavement is heated so it never gets covered with snow or ice, meaning it’s actually reasonable to wear something other than snow or rain boots! I finished the outfit with my black booties that I’ve had for a couple years and pinned my hair into a bun, and we strolled around the village window shopping and sightseeing before heading back in for dinner.
Come back tomorrow for the final post from our trip to Vail!
