Overnight on Saturday night Beaver Creek got six new inches of snow. All of the fresh snow was beautiful. It again covered the trees and roads and gave everything a fresh new coat of white. Here are the views from our balcony.
Jason, Kelly, and Tripp went to ski Sunday morning and I slept a little late. After a lunch with Jason at Blue Moose I went to the Hyatt for some spa treatments. Jason offerred to let me go to the spa since I wasn’t going to be able to ski and so I took him at his word and booked a massage, manicure, and pedicure and thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon of pampering. The Park Hyatt was beautiful inside so it was also neat to be able to go inside and look around and not feel like I was trespassing.
After the day we all got ready for our reservation at Beano’s Cabin. We had heard great things about this restaurant from many people and were really looking forward to a dinner up on the mountain. You can only get to the cabin via a 20 min snow-cat pulled sleigh ride which was neat but really cold. Dinner was a fantastic five course meal with really great food. We really enjoyed being in such a unique place with such good friends. We were especially impressed once we got in the cabin. On the ride up they told us that the log cabin was built in Minnesota and then each piece was numbered and taken apart and sent to Beaver Creek to be reassembled on the moutain. This cabin was huge so that was especially impressive!
Once we got to the cabin they showed us a huge coat room to hang up our coats. They tell you to dress warmly with hats and jackets, etc so it’s nice that they give you a place to put all of it. They also have slippers that you can wear for dinner if you like. Tripp was the only one to take them up on that offer!
Once we finished our soup we were brought a salad of mixed greens, endamame, goat cheese, and a tomato olive dressing. I wasn’t too sure about it when reading it on the menu but it was so good!
Up next were our appetizers. We all got different ones but once they arrived they all looked very tasty! Jason got the Pancetta Wrapped Rabbit Loin but sadly the picture didn’t take so I don’t have a picture of it!
