My family and I found the staff at Pine Ridge Condos to be friendly and very helpful. The cabin was very spacious and clean. Christy’s Sports shop is located in the same building and made it very convenient to rent our skis and snowboards. The one-block distance to downtown made it easy to walk to the restaurants and shops without having to wait for a bus. Since Pine Ridge is a regular stop for the free bus service, it was very easy to get to the ski lifts from our condo. We will DEFINITELY stay here next year.

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/ .
Fall is here folks! In most towns around the country when you think of fall, you think of changing colors and fallen leaves. Well, much of the same here in Breckenridge but we add snow in our fall season. That’s right, it snowed yesterday in Breckenridge and more in the forecast for this weekend. Our Summit Express Shuttle saw snow for the first time this season yesterday as well. Both A-Basin and Loveland ski resorts have started making snow. Breckenridge I’m sure will start making snow soon. One of Breckenridge’s ski in properties is Pine Ridge.
