Girls Getaway to Aspen - Day 3 (Guest Blog)

Guest blog by Teresa Wagner

Today we focused our efforts on skiing at Aspen Mountain. After picking up our equipment from the super friendly and over the top helpful crew at Incline Sports, we headed up the mountain in the Gondola. We happened to be riding with a young man who quickly inserted his ipod into the player and serenaded us with music on the way up. He shared that his faves are Katy Perry, Lady GaGa and Black-eyed Peas. A couple of runs in, we needed sustenance and stopped off at Il Miluno slopeside for a small feast of Club Sandwich and Soup Sampler. All were uniquely crafted with the sandwich featuring a twist of fried egg in place of the usual ham and the lentil soup, egg drop soup and tuscan soup all outside the usual ingredients. After lunch, we sat and soaked up the sun as the weather was perfect with very little wind and not a cloud in the sky. Oh and I guess I should mention here, the flourless chocolate cake that I had for dessert that was more like a piece of fudge and just a little less than a slice of heaven! Content and relaxed, we just hung out for a while and then, headed up the mountain for one last run before returning to Le Mazot for some blogging and relaxation in the comfort of our own place. After another nap, we pulled ourselves together and headed out for more shopping and exploration. We ended up at Jimmy’s for dinner and ordered from the bar menu which is more than ample. I chose the Oven Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Casey had the Southwest Ahi Tuna Salad. I substituted Mac & Cheese for the grits that accompany the pork which was an excellent choice as the Mac & Cheese is to die for!! After dinner, we headed back to Le Mazot and had a quiet evening watching movies and packing up for our expedition back to Denver tomorrow.
