We spent a day skiing at Copper Mountain. I was hoping for a glorious spring skiing day but realized this would not be the case when we exited the hotel to a temperature of 2 degrees ~ Brrr!
Arriving at the mountain, bundled up and anxious to hit the slopes…
Having only skied in the Northeast, I had never experienced the high elevation effects on the body. I didn't know why I was feeling slightly nauseous and a bit light headed but suspected it was due to the fact that I had not eaten. When we stopped for a break to get something to eat in the lodge, DS1 informed me that I was experiencing mild elevation sickness and suggested I drink plenty of water (something I never do). The elevation in the Colorado vs Vermont is much higher.

Another highlight of our Easter trip was the unexpected, and very generous, treat from DS1 and DIL: Brunch at Elways in downtown Denver.
We enjoyed an
Extensive selection of delicious food
Impressive and irresistible desserts
