Ski Conditions

If you live in Solterra then you already know. You’re at least a half-hour closer to Colorado’s Front Range ski resorts. Making those powder days all the more powderful. When you can sleep in a little longer and still get first tracks it kind of feels like cheating. But don’t worry, you get over it. All you need to know is who has the most snow so you can b-line it to your favorite bowl, chute or tree run. Below you’ll find a few links with up-to-date conditions. Happy skiing and riding. And don’t forget to invite us to the après ski party when you get back to Solterra.

Restaurant Recommendation: 240 Union

Just ten minutes from Solterra, 240 Union can easily become a good habit. The only thing more enticing than the proximity is the menu, a mouthwatering fusion of traditional and nouveau inspirations. Take the Angus rib eye with bacon-lobster-tomato potato salad. Or the swordfish with avocado, lump crab and orange–chili vinaigrette.
Hungry yet? You’ll find this delightful eatery at 240 Union Boulevard in Lakewood. And at 240union.com. Reservations can be made at 303-989-3562.

That’s our opinion but we’d love to hear from you. Share your restaurant review with us on our Facebook page. And cheers!

Solterra Wine Festival

Our thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s annual Wine Festival a success. It truly has become the don’t-miss-event of the summer. The August 11 soiree was a lot of fun. And the nearly 600 in attendance enjoyed a delightful mix of live music, delicious food pairings and, of course, wines from around the world. And all for a good cause … around $12,000 was raised for the YMCA of Metropolitan Denver’s teen center and outreach programs. Hope to see you there next year.
