Snow Place Like Home

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with SnowHome Properties

At no time does this slogan of ours make more sense than at the first snow of the season.  So, as we near the end of this day of our first snow of 2006, it’s a good time to reflect.  Avid skiers and snowboarders are salivating.  Golfers and mountain climbers are groaning.  But, regardless, everyone knows that we live high in the Colorado mountains, that our ski resorts of Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin are the real reason that the majority of us live here.  If not for the skiing itself, then to support those who hang on for it. 

 

So it snows.  It won’t last.  Not this one.  We are used to having one or two good snows in September and/or October, then a balmy Fall season leading to the real thing.  However, nights are appropriately cold, and days do provide a bit of a chill any time we get a little breeze or cloud cover, that the resorts will start making snow soon.  There is always a competition to be the first to open the slopes – which usually means one slope – to get the earlier, hungrier, rock skiers.  And on we go.  

Home to a fire in the fireplace, watching our wild birds cling to the feeders, and listening to Sophie, our blue parrot, quietly chirp.  Snow Place Like Home.  Yeah.

Hard to think of you in the snow when we have 92 F temperatures in the afternoons.
