24 Mar Winter Park 2020
I have recently realized that I do not have a lot of indoor hobbies outside of the occasional Sunday Netflix binge or game nights which means you can expect content on Lifestyle Cassie the next few (4, 8, 12?) weeks while we social distance. Today I wanted to share our recent trip to Winter Park in Colorado. This is the second time we have been to Winter Park and as it turns out, remembering to ski is like riding a bike and learning to snowboard is not my jam. The timing of everything we did on this trip was impeccable and my itinerary loving heart could not have been happier. We landed on a Thursday in Denver and immediately went to find pizza at Cart Driver. They have wood fired pizza and the location we went to is located in a shipping container! Afterwards, we headed to Winter Park, picked up our rental skis, and finished the last episode of Love is Blind at our Airbnb (S/O to the Powder Pad).
Ninety percent of Saturday was spent skiing, walking around local shops, and ending the day with a sugar waffle from Waffle Cabin. Honestly, I have dreams about these so if you are ever near a location, grab yourself one and thank me later. That evening, we took the scenic gondola ride up to the Mountaintop Lodge for the view and I will bucket list making a reservation to have drinks at the lodge/ restaurant one night when we visit again. Sunday morning we woke up, cooked breakfast, and headed back towards Denver. We made a stop at the Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater before checking in to our hotel downtown and grabbing dinner a Punch Bowl Social. If there was one business I think Northwest Arkansas needs that we do not have, it is this. They have food/ drinks, bowling, ping pong, karaoke, and all the games.
I am sharing what I packed below but I want to call out a few of my favorites. This sweater from Show Me Your Mumu is one part bohemian, one part fringe and your closet needs it. I reach for Show Me Your Mumu pieces time and time again because they fit over-sized and are the best quality. I haven’t stopped wearing these joggers since I purchased them. They are perfect for traveling, tournament days, and eating pizza on the couch (priorities). We have already decided our next Colorado trip will be to Keystone, Telluride, or Breckenridge. Do you have a favorite ski destination?
Thank you for stopping by Lifestyle Cassie today, I truly appreciate it.
