Mountain #6 of #EpicRace -- Beaver Creek

Friday, November 29, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving (a day late)! We hope everyone had a fantastic day! We spent the day with Jess' parents, Peggy and Paul, and brother, Jon, at Beaver Creek checking off Mountain #6 in our #EpicRace challenge. The snow was great and it was another beautiful blue sky day! We had a blast zipping around the mountain with no lines, hardly any people, and only losing Jon once. We of course had to visit the mountain top Nordic Center for Dave to get his "Nordic" fill in for the day. My parents also surprised us with a new GoPro as an early Christmas present, so we had try it out! Unfortunately none of the videos turned out very interesting as I need to learn to ski closer to people and things versus just cruising down the middle of the run.

Once we finished skiing, it was back to Vail to quickly shower and start making the Thanksgiving classic, Green Bean Casserole for our big extended family dinner. If you're in need of a delicious recipe, I highly recommend this recipe from 100 Days of Real Food. It turned out amazing and was really easy to make, and didn't rely on any processed food from a can! We were also able to make it gluten free pretty easily so the whole family could enjoy it.

Okay, on to the requirements we checked off for the photo/video challenge at Beaver Creek.

1) Feel what it's like to be a World Class Female Racer -- Capture a photo at the start of the Women's Downhill Course.

2) Take in the Gore Range -- Capture a photo/video at the top of Chair #6 looking North-East at the Gore Range.

3) Visit America's only mountain top Nordic center -- Capture a photo/video at the entrance to McCoy Park. 

And that's all for us from Beaver Creek! Happy Thanksgiving!
