I love California, but if I had to move, Colorado would be my top choice. I love it there- especially Vail in the winter. A couple weeks ago I reunited with 75% of my family there for some time on the mountain.
The only thing as good as the skiing in Vail is the food. We spent the first evening enjoying a fabulous French feast at La Tour.
And the second evening at Boll. This place is all about fusion: it’s a bowling alley/restaurant with a chic, full-service bar. The food is fabulous and draws influence from all over the world.
Sadly, the mountain is closed for the season. Fingers crossed to return next year!
