View From Peak 10 at Breckenridge Ski Resort
If you’ve been following the weather stories from Colorado this spring, you know we’ve been getting a LOT of late season snow. So much in fact, that Vail, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain are all re-opening this coming weekend April 19-21 for an encore performance of closing [...]
This is not a sports blog, or a football blog. But sometimes regional sport franchises have an impact that somewhat transcends the arena, and affects the overall sense of well being of a community. That was the 2012 Denver Broncos.
It really all started last year, when Tim Tebow was given the starting quarterback job, [...]
I’ve always said to my clients, that when they buy real estate in Colorado Springs, they get the rest of the state of Colorado as their back yard. This weekend we took a rather extensive road trip to see some of our kids – and some fall color, in our ‘back yard’.
We started in [...]
For almost 20 years I have been driving past (and literally under) Loveland Ski Area on my way from Colorado Springs to the larger resorts of Summit County, just over the hill. How silly some of that driving really was! While Loveland is not as large as the more well known Summit County resorts of [...]
This past weekend we drove up to Divide and Cripple Creek for our annual fix of fall colors. Only an hour or so from Colorado Springs, this is a very popular local area for color tours. The trees did not disappoint. 2010 has been a dry sunny fall, and the leaves were pretty much at peak [...]
I love the fall in Colorado Springs. Cooler mornings, clear crisp air, and golden aspens make this a special time of year. One of the big treats is the changing of the leaves. It is a different experience every year, and every elevation. Some years a wind storm can come and blow it all away [...]
OK, it isn’t really new if you listen to the geologists, they talk millions of years, right? But access by the general Colorado Springs hiking and biking public to this southern extension of the Garden of the Gods rock formations has not been that long (since 2003). For a more complete history, visit Red Rocks [...]
One of the highlights of Colorado Springs community calendar is the annual Labor Day balloon festival. While we did not make it to this years Colorado Balloon Classic, it is such colorful event, and so memorable, I couldn’t help but bring out some photos of the 2008 event that I attended with my grandson Tyler. [...]
Most people familiar with Teller County wouldn’t really think of it as a suburb. It is really pretty rural, but the fact is that most of Teller County lives in the shadow of Colorado Springs economically, and as part of our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) area, deserves some coverage of its own from time to time.
We took a mid-week day off yesterday, and my wife and I headed up to Breckenridge for a little R&R. Living in Colorado Springs has some great advantages, and one of them is the ability to go to some really nice places in a pretty short amount of time.
Breckenridge is about a 2 hour [...]
