Frisco Main Street


Keystone village

Another great day skiing yesterday but the cold temps and high altitude have us feeling a bit lethargic. There are oxygen bars all over the place here where you can pay to inhale O2 to ward off the effects of altitude. You can even buy pressure packs of O2 to use on demand.

We have both contracted colds and it was -21 deg when we woke up this morning so we wimped on the skiing and took the Chevy for a spin around the local area. The historic mining town of Frisco was fascinating with many old buildings and cute restaurants. There is a nearby lake but it is completely frozen at the moment.

There are quite a few ski resorts close to Breck and we drove to the nearest – Keystone. We had a quick look around but it was too cold to spend much time out of our toasty warm car. Our lift tickets for Breck allow us to ski at Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek so we hope to ski at a couple of these places.
