Run of the day: Claimjumper
The weather is great for staying out all day long, and covering lots of terrain. I headed up the Colorado SuperChair to the Columbine trail, which intersects Claimjumper. Peak 7 has some great blue terrain and is packed with plentiful groomers to boot. From there, you can take the Independence SuperChair at the base of Peak 7 to Angle’s Rest to catch the Zendo Chair to take you to Peak 6 for some even more incredible views.
Claimjumper can take you all the way down to the base of Peak 7, which is a great idea if you’d like to punctuate your epic day by ending it with a beautiful mountain backdrop and relaxation. Head into Sevens Restaurant at the base of Peak 7 and recap all of your travels with your mountain buddies over après and appetizers. It has a breathtaking patio with views of the Rockies, perfect for this beautiful weather we’ve been having. It’s a causal yet upscale environment, allowing you to relax in luxury. Happy hour at Sevens is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. (perfect for post-mountain eats!) and 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday. Check out their special menu for Valentine’s Day — you won’t want to miss that! We’ll see you there!
