There’s nothing like watching a little bit of ski racing to get me in the mood again to take to Aspen my dust covered Volkl GS Racetigers out of the garage. I’ve been following the Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria, for the past two weeks and with every race I watched I got excited again about skiing the “real” skis.

Shortly after I got married, my husband bought me a ticket for Arapahoe Basin. Little did I know that would be the last time I would ski by myself.

Open a trail map from Sunlight Mountain Resort and take a look. At first glance, the map looks a lot like many other small resorts in Colorado. There is one base, with a lodge, ski school, rental shop and all services adjacent to a free parking lot.

When you’re in an unfamiliar city and you want a good meal, your best bet is to put away your guidebook and find out where the locals go. You probably won’t get steered to the fanciest, most expensive, most famous place in town. More likely, you’ll be led to a place where the food is good and good value, and the vibe is friendly and relaxed.

As Colorado skiers and boarders are getting fired up for another winter season, Arapahoe Basin’s head chef Chris Rybak is firing up the kitchen to deliver a culinary experience as exhilarating and diverse as the terrain outside his high-altitude restaurant. After five seasons with the resort, Rybak has no plans of slowing down his mission to provide delicious, healthy food with a minimum of waste. His partnership with A-Basin has allowed a vision to come alive that will likely be pursued by other resorts as they realize the many strengths of the operation. That vision includes a diverse forward-thinking menu, a moonlight dinner series, and a commitment to sustainable practices aimed at reducing waste, promoting recycling and composting techniques, and demonstrating to the public how easy it is to participate.

When we arrived back at our condo after a fun day on Winter Park’s slopes, I stopped and marveled. Our front entryway looked like a bomb had gone off and the carnage was an onslaught of gloves, boots, helmets and jackets.

Two big things happen at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen each January. The first, as you may have guessed, is the Winter X Games, at Buttermilk through at least 2014. The second is not so obvious, but it’s related to the X Games. It’s the Buttermilk Deluxe private lesson package, also known (at least to me) as “one big screaming deal.”
