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.

Breckenridge Ski Resort expecting 9 to 13 inches tomorrow

Town Trappings

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Pine Ridger’s, welcome to our first installment of Town Trappings, where we give you a taste of some of our local flavor (because who knows Breckenridge better than a local?).

 

Let me introduce you to Mimi’s Fried Pies, a small, family owned restaurant on Main Street in Breckenridge. Everything on their menu is deliciously fresh and fried. My favorite item on the menu is the Fried Sloppy Joe, as messy as it is tasty. My wife, on the other hand, is a Southerner through and through. She can’t help herself when it comes to the chicken pot pie (reminds her of home). But, we find common ground by splitting the Banana’s Foster dessert pie.

 

In my humble opinion, this is the best location to get a quick meal or treat in Breckenridge. Obviously I’m not the only one, as Mimi’s Fried Pies is ranked #1 on TripAdvisor. So if you’re in the mood for a taste of Americana, head down to Mimi’s at 411 South Main Street (walking dis;tance from Pine Ridge Condos) or check out their website for yourself at www.mimisfriedpies.com
