Winter Vacationing for The Non-Skier at Keystone, CO

My first trip for 2014 was a bit of a whirlwind. After a bit of trouble getting out of New York due to weather, I made my way to Las Vegas for conferences…more on that soon.

I have to say that conferences are nice, speaking at them even nicer, and reconnecting with friends is the best, but I most enjoyed the latter part of my trip where I connected with family in LA and then with my husband and kids in one of our favorite ski areas: Keystone Resort.

It has been two years since I last visited the area with my family and a few things have changed. For one, I refused to get on skis this time around. I can’t say that I will never, ever get on skis again, but I have somewhat convinced myself that if it’s uncomfortable and not 100% enjoyable, I wasn’t going to do any of it. Unfortunately skiing has fallen into that category for the time being.

My husband and teen took to the slopes, while my children took to the ski school, and I was left to my own devices most of the time. You would think that my convictions would have me utterly bored at a ski resort, but it was quite the opposite.

Kids Ski Free at Keystone Resort, CO!

There are so many reasons to love Keystone Resort in Colorado. My family and I still talk about the many fun times there and the smiles on my children’s faces as they learned to ski is still engraved in my mind as one of my most proudest moments.

Thus, I am beyond thrilled at today’s announcement that kids 12 and under will ski free, no blackout dates! Meaning, whenever families like to travel (which usually means during school breaks and holiday season), kids still have access to the mountain, free of charge.

Feasting at Keystone Resort’s Winter Culinary Festival

A couple of weeks have passed since I last visited Keystone for their Winter Culinary Festival. I remember a lot of great things about my last visit, such as seeing old friends, meeting new ones, getting to experience the resort in a new way, the spa, the sparkling wine, and the food. Oh my goodness, the food.

You would wonder why I would be so shocked at the amount of food, considering that I was at a culinary festival and all.

The Inn at Keystone, CO

While visiting Keystone, CO for their Winter Culinary Festival (more on that soon), I had a chance to check out one of the many different lodging experiences on the resort.

What I appreciate about Keystone Resorts is that guests can choose the lodging that best fits their needs and their budgets without sacrificing the amenities and services.

Last time I visited the resort, I went with my family. Because there were more of us, we stayed in one of the condos at the Dakota Lodge. The condos are great in that they are within walking distance to the slopes. The location is also ideal for walking to shops, restaurants, the ski school, rentals, and pretty much all you would need for your snow fun needs. You can’t walk to the the gym or spa, however, and The Village, located on the Keystone Lodge property as well, requires a car or shuttle.

I am so excited to announce that I will be returning to Keystone, CO to take part in their Culinary Festival this coming March! Not only will I be enjoying all the festival has to offer, but I will also be interviewing chefs and guests along the way. At this fabulous festival Keystone will feature the best of its culinary scene and some fun dishes, such as the White Chocolate Mousse “pasta” dessert with strawberry “marinara” sauce and truffle “meatballs,” as well as “garlic bread” made of pound cake with apricot jelly and mint as seen in the image below. Yum!

During our visit to Keystone, CO, not only did we have fun checking out the slopes, but we spent our few evenings there enjoying the food.

In the various places we tried, we were pleasantly surprised not only by the level of quality of service we received, but also by the amazing culinary scene.

It is our recommendation that when you visit Keystone, and really you should, that you try (at least one) the following restaurants:

My crew and I went on an adventure to Colorado this weekend. We were making our way from Denver airport to Keystone, CO to stay at the Keystone Resort. The ride was estimated to be about an hour and a half long. But a sudden blizzard had covered the major interstate with snow, and there were some unfortunate accidents along the way, which slowed us down even further.

While I was stressing about whether or not I was going to make a 6:30pm dinner engagement, I overheard another passenger say to the driver:

“I heard it’s supposed to be 18 degrees tomorrow and continued snow!”

“Oh yeah, this is the best we’ve gotten this early in a long time,” said the driver of the van.

Right now I am home preparing for the holidays with my family. We like to spend them here. With New York City as our playground, we enjoy all the lights and scenes.

However, once all the festivities are over, we start feeling the urge to get out there for some winter fun, and boy have we had some over the years.

Here is a collection of some of my favorite winter escapes to help inspire your next trip:

As I sit here amidst work documents, holiday wrapping paper, and cards from friends, my teen is at the mall where he drove himself to go holiday shopping.

This is where my life is now. No matter what else is happening around me, these changes happening in my family are what consume me and are shaping every minute of my day and my being.

It’s been an insanely, beautiful year.
