Snow Mass: Waffle Shrine & such a Sweet Life + Hot Chocolate

Weather was terrific today, so I headed to the slopes for a few hours to get some skiing in. I can really work up an appetite for hot chocolate on the slopes but was so excited at the bottom of the hill to see two new places to eat more chocolate.

In the new Snowmass Base Village, you will find Sweet Life and Waffle Shrine.  Waffle Shrine makes terrific waffles right at the entrance to the lift.  You can get a little chocolate and whipped cream to add to this waffle treat.  Good at breakfast or immediately after a hard day of skiing.
The Sweet Life is a candy store complete with every type of chocolate, gummy, candy and ice cream just across the path from the Waffle Shrine.  Great place to stock up for the slopes or to reload after you come off the mountain.
After a few runs, I took a quick siesta from skiing with our good friend Gilian to enjoy some great hot chocolate at Sam's Smokehouse.  We were about to go for cup 2, when her husband Steve aborted our mission- getting us back on the mountain for a group picture.
Love Snowmass this time of year!
