Breckenridge Snow Report – Fresh Snow with a Chance of Tears

There was great anticipation in the van as David looked up the Breckenridge Snow Report for the next day.  The snow was to blanket the mountain overnight and continue to fall the next day.  Fresh powder, on the day his boyhood dream was to become a reality!

He would finally get his chance to ski the coveted slopes of Breckenridge – or “Breck” as the locals call it.  He had fantasized about this moment since he first learned to ski in the early 80’s.  Riffling through winter sport magazines, imagining himself floating on the powder above the tree line.

He had skied in places like Whistler, Snowbird, Mt. Bachelor, and Park City – but never Breck.

We spent several days in the quaint mountain town already enjoying all it had to offer before the snow fell enough for the lifts to open.  As a family, we had ample time to gather gear from local businesses that would keep us warm in the colder climate.  We were happy to find a fully stocked reuse sports store in the next town over where we scored awesome deals on almost everything we needed – a relief because all we had with us was what would fit in a few suitcases.  We had been on the road since summer and those clothes weren’t transitioning real well.

David got fitted for special hard boots because he has funny little bone spurs on the tops of his feet so regular boots never fit right.  They were an investment but we were okay with dropping the dough because we were hopeful that this was our new family sport.  If you read {Part 1} of the Breckenridge Snow Report series you already know how that turned out!

David was thrilled for the kids and I to become personally acquainted with the sport that meant so much to him growing up.  He was so kind to give us plenty of time on the snow before he hit the mountain himself.  Up and down we went on the magic carpet while he took care of Girlr and watched while the boys and I fell and got back up ad nauseum trying to figure out how to keep our skis steady underneath of us.

He was so patient.  Just content to be in Breckenridge at all.  But I knew below the surface he was dying to get out there himself and see if it was really as good as he had always dreamed it would be.  I wasn’t with him on the slopes that day but all I know is what happened when he came back.

Tears of gratitude.

He just came back and wept.  So thankful for being able to fulfill a dream that he didn’t anticipate happening until much later.  Part of what made it all the sweeter was that so many things in our life were falling apart all around us and here we were being blessed beyond belief.  Things were hard.  REALLY hard in so many ways and yet all we could do was thank God for His provision and goodness.  I will never forget the weeks we spent in that glorious and terrible place!

Stay tuned for the last in this Breckenridge Snow Report Series (silly name, I know) to find out what happened with E on those treacherous mountains!  And don’t forget to like our page on FB if you haven’t already!

Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

I just like the valuable information you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and take a look at once more right here frequently. I’m reasonably sure I will be told many new stuff right right here! Good luck for the next!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I have discovered some new issues from your site about computers. Another thing I have always imagined is that computer systems have become something that each home must have for several reasons. They supply you with convenient ways to organize homes, pay bills, search for information, study, tune in to music and in many cases watch tv series. An innovative method to complete every one of these tasks is to use a computer. These pc’s are mobile, small, potent and mobile.

Thanks for your write-up. I have always noticed that a majority of people are desirous to lose weight as they wish to appear slim in addition to looking attractive. On the other hand, they do not always realize that there are other benefits to losing weight as well. Doctors say that overweight people are afflicted with a variety of conditions that can be instantly attributed to their particular excess weight. The great news is that people who are overweight and also suffering from diverse diseases are able to reduce the severity of their illnesses by means of losing weight. It is easy to see a slow but notable improvement with health when even a small amount of losing weight is obtained.

I will also like to say that most of those who find themselves without having health insurance can be students, self-employed and those that are out of work. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not really feel they are in need of health insurance since they are young and also healthy. Its income is often spent on houses, food, and also entertainment. Many people that do represent the working class either entire or as a hobby are not supplied insurance by way of their jobs so they get along without owing to the rising valuation on health insurance in the United States.

I have learned many important things via your post. I would also like to say that there may be a situation that you will obtain a loan and never need a co-signer such as a U.S. Student Support Loan. However, if you are getting a borrowing arrangement through a common bank or investment company then you need to be made ready to have a cosigner ready to allow you to. The lenders can base that decision on a few variables but the largest will be your credit rating. There are some loan companies that will furthermore look at your work history and determine based on this but in many instances it will hinge on your ranking.
