I admit it—I’m a flatlander. Michigan born and bred, until recently, the vast majority of my ski experience had been restricted to our “mountains” in the Midwest. Despite my limited knowledge of what top ski areas in the West had to offer, I was pretty sure that calling Swiss Valley and Caberfae actual ski resorts was a stretch. So when Joshua, our high school senior who will be heading off for the Army in June, suggested a family ski trip over Christmas break, I knew it was time for a real adventure—and real mountains! We decided to go all out for Josh’s senior trip, and planned some time at Breckenridge in Colorado.
