Town Trappings: Wasabi review

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Sushi in the Rocky Mountains in February…. Impossible! Actually there’s a plethora of sushi places to choose from in Summit County. My choice for Pine Ridge guests would be Wasabi Japanese restaurant.

We recently visited Wasabi in Breckenridge and had an amazing time! Our waitress was cheery and informative. We started with the Wasabi Steamed Pork Dumplings (We’re always striving to try something new.) If you are in the mood to try something uniquely delicious, this is for you! Immediately the savory pork dumplings fill your mouth with the delight, then the wasabi hits the roof of your mouth– POW! Like stepping out into the snow after a hot tub, the wasabi caught us off guard even though we knew it was coming. However, the appetizer was so delicious, we ordered a second!

Finally came the main event– the sushi! The spicy tuna and asparagus rolls were delicious, but out shined by Wasabi’s specialty rolls. The Shrimp Tempura roll and the Summit Roll could only be described as yummy. In fact, rather than getting dessert we ordered another roll, this time enlisting the help of our waitress. She suggested the Number 10- their newest roll. It’s a cross between a California Roll and a Spicy Tuna roll. The best of both worlds! We were delighted.

Overall, Wasabi is the best sushi in Breckenridge (by our account). I would even suggest that it’s the best Asian dining in Breck, but I would only be making this judgment by their wasabi pork dumplings. (Though those by themselves would earn Wasabi a best of mark in my book.) But go see for yourselves, they’re located at 311 North Main Street in Main Street Mall or visit their website at http://www.wasabi-breckenridge.com/ .

Breckenridge Mountain Resort reports 8 inches of powder

Friday, January 27th, 2012

That’s right! Breckenridge Resort is reporting 8 inches of fresh white fluffy stuff for your riding enjoyment. Earlier in the week we wrote, there was a chance for 2-4 inches in the forecast and boy were we wrong! First thing this morning we ran outside and snapped a few photos for our blog, and then slid down the hill to the Riverwalk Center to see how the snow giants had fared. Upon first sight everyone/thing looked great, plus a fresh winter coat. Teams were busy brushing off Ullrs bounty and some were even being interviewed by both local and national news stations (Watch your favorite news channel you may see Breckenridge).

 

 

This morning we are strapping on the big Volkls (132 mm underfoot) and crushing powder pillow after powder pillow as the snow seems to be on automatic refill with snow still falling as we type. Look for a video edit in the near future featuring todays antics via our brand new GoPro Hero2 (Please, don’t let us lose this one).

 Call the Pine Ridge office on your way up and speak to Katie in order secure what is left of our rapidly depleting inventory 1-888-840-4170.

Till next time….

Saturday will be a powder day

Fifteen teams of snow sculptors from ten different countries have already begun carving what they hope to be the winning piece in Breckenridge’s annual Snow Sculpture Championships. The teams began the sculpting process Tuesday at 11 a.m. and 65 hours later on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. the teams must be finished with their work. The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday at 3:30 p.m., but curious visitors are encouraged to come and view the process and the final products anytime starting Jan. 24,

Breckenridge is expected to see snow accumulation in the neighborhood of 2 to 4 inches on Friday. Come Saturday, temps will range between 18 to 28 degrees and not a trace of that bone chilling wind we all love/expect. With last weekends snow firmly packed into corduroy and additional snow on the way, conditions are shaping up everyday. What are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and give us a call 1-888-840-4170

Pine Ridge is almost fully booked for this weekend, but we do have a few remaining units. Find our availability here (hit your refresh button for the most current results).

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. Jan 20, 2011 – Today Breckenridge Ski Resort opened upper mountain lifts the T-Bar and 6 Chair, making local powder dreams come true just in time for this weekend. Thanks to a remarkable effort by the Breckenridge Ski Patrol, 250 new acres of advance terrain served by these lifts is now open. In addition to the recently opened E-Chair, Breck skiers and riders can enjoy this rapid-fire increase of terrain openings in recent days, as Mother Nature has supplied Breck with 14 inches of snow in the last 7 days.

National Weather Service forecasts up to 10 new inches to fall over the weekend at Breckenridge Ski Resort. A chance of snow continues into next week with a low pressure system moving through Colorado.
