A Ski and Travel Club in San Antonio, TX

Trip “Tails” from TSC Traditional Trip: Steamboat Springs, CO January 13-20, 2018

On the first trip of the year, 10 of us hit the slopes of Steamboat, Colorado. Christine, Claire, Kip, Betty Ann, Bart, Ray, John, Norma Jean, Cinnamon, and Alycen all met at the San Antonio airport and flew to Dallas and then into Hayden. A small hiccup in accommodations due to a water leak in one condo resulted in an upgrade to a beautiful 4 bed/3.5 bath townhome, but a shuttle ride from the slopes.

The famous Cowboy Downhill races were kicked off by a Balloon Festival “Glow” when 6 brightly colored hot air balloons were inflated in Gondola Square. It was quite a sight to see the cowboys and cowgirls compete in a downhill ski, roping, and putting a saddle on a horse all while on skis or a snowboard!

We enjoyed some really tasty meals, and Cinnamon, Christine, and Alycen had a “Christine Special” almost every night: Captain Morgan’s spice rum, apple cider, lemon, honey, sugar, and a cinnamon stick. A great night cap. Claire introduced us to what was formerly known as Hawaiian toast, now renamed Steamboat Toast.

Wednesday, our club dinner night, was John Koone’s 30th anniversary with the club, so we had the exact same dinner that he had 30 years ago. The spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread, trash bag salad, and lots of wine was topped off with an amazing desert of banana’s foster. John made the desert and set it ablaze in the condo too! I’m surprised the sprinklers didn’t go off. We rounded out the evening with Mexican Train (furnished by Christine, schlepped from the airport by Bart).

The next couple of days were in the mid to high 30’s and no new snow. A few people skied, but Bart, Christine, Claire, Cinnamon, and Alycen all decided to be adventurous and rode the steel mountain coaster. It was cold, but great fun!

In all, it was a great trip!
