French Alps Party Menu

Lauras_Birthday_Gateau

In 2022, I was lucky enough to spend my birthday running around the French Alps – amazing! But I never got to celebrate with my friends and family back home, which kind of bummed me out. This year, I’ve struggled with going back and forth between my Superior house and my house in Minturn (I know, first world problems!) because it’s been tough to maintain two friend groups. So putting those two problems together, I decided to host two birthday parties in 2023: one in the mountains for my friends up there, and one back in the Front Range. That …

Weekend Recap: Misty Meadow Mountain and Vail Beer Festival

Sadie_Misty_Meadow_Mountain

Friday was my company’s annual promotion day, where all the promotions for the year are announced, and we celebrate. This year, we were still obviously not doing an in-person celebration, but our local office arranged for a magician to perform on Zoom (and he was phenomenal, – I wasn’t expecting much over Zoom, but it was awesome!), and the national organization arranged for Keith Urban to perform. I haven’t really listened to much Keith Urban in a while, but I got really into it, singing and dancing in front of my laptop screen 🙂 Now I want to go to a …

Weekend Recap: Hiking, Eating, and Drinking My Way Through the Mountains

Laura_Hiking_Down_Game_Creek_Trail

My weekend kicked off a little bit early – my date and I headed to Minturn on Thursday night, stopping at Outer Range Brewing for fried chicken sandwiches on the way up, and then worked from there on Friday. I had a really light day of meetings, and it was nice to get a change of scenery while digging into some deep work! My original plan on Friday morning was to do an early morning run of Meadow Mountain before work, but I ended up lounging around and really not getting in a workout at all, outside of a quick …

Weekend Recap: Mountain Weekend of Unplanned Rest Days

Elk_Calving_Trail_Closure

My weekend started out a little bit early, as I headed to the mountains Thursday after work. My company was giving us a four day weekend for Memorial Day, and I was excited to get started! I took a long time to get going on Friday morning, both reading in bed and then eventually really craving a bagel. I decided to go to Avon to pick one up before heading out to hike. On the way back, Sadie and I saw a moose on the side of the road, right next to the trailhead where I was planning to hike. …

Weekend Recap: Copper Mountain Skiing

Saturday_Night_Spread (1)

We got a big snowstorm Thursday night, which meant my Friday morning started out taking Sadie on a five mile run through the snow drifts. I was so glad I did! Honestly, my days are always so much better when I start them with a run. Around midday, I headed up to the mountains for what would end up being my last ski weekend of the year. On my drive to Minturn, I stopped at Vail to squeeze a few runs in, but when I headed up over the top of the mountain to Sun Up Bowl, I was really …
