Happy Holidays

happy holidays

Everyone at TrailRidge Realty wishes you the best holiday season! This is a great time to get together with your friends and loved ones to enjoy the company and the amazing weather that Colorado brings. Everyone celebrates a different holiday with unique traditions. Start up a conversation with someone you don’t know too well by asking them what their favorite tradition is. Listening to all the cool traditions out there, makes you want to start a new one!

This holiday season, I challenge you to try something new. Whether that is a new tradition, new food or drink, or doing something nice for someone in need. This time of year can get very stressful, and adding a little more fun into the mix will help relieve that stress. Let us know in the comments what you decided to do!

Downtown Louisville Ice Skating Now Open

Downtown Louisville Ice Skating Open 

downtown louisville ice skatingThe Downtown Louisville Ice Skating Rink is now open! This a great place to take the kids to learn how to ice skate. Shoes are available to rent at the entrance. Note that this rink is more of a friendly, fun place to meet friends and play. It’s not big enough for ice hockey and they don’t have a Zamboni. That means the ice s a bit ruff and not ideal for pirouettes. But don’t let that stop you! Sometimes things that aren’t perfect are actually quite fun.

Downtown Louisville Ice Skating Rink is located at the Steinbaugh Pavilion. This area is transformed by Boulder Creek each season to become an outdoor ice skating rink! Its a small, informal space where you can enjoy outdoor fun throughout the winter months. Skating is open from November through February each year.

Family Photoshoot Survey

 Family Photoshoot Survey

family photoshoot surveyAs you probably remember, last holiday season we held a family photoshoot with Santa. We then shared and sent out pictures to everyone who got their picture taken. This year we need your help to figure out if you would rather have a Halloween or Holiday themed family pictures.

For the Halloween theme, you would dress up in your family’s costumes and come take pictures with fun Halloween backgrounds. This would be fun, as most people don’t get family pictures of everyone in their awesome costumes. For the Holiday theme, you will have the chance to take a picture with or without Santa with a gorgeous backdrop of the holidays. This is fun, because you get to dress up and you will have a nice family picture to send out to the rest of your family.

Your input matters for the final decision. We would love to hear your input, so we can try to make everyone has happy as can be. Click here to take the survey. It is only one question, so it will take less than a minute. We greatly appreciate everyone’s opinion. If you have any questions regarding this please email leanne@trailridge.co.

Downtown Louisville Ice Skating

 Downtown Louisville Ice Skating

Want to have fun with your friends and family outside this winter? How about doing that without having to drive up I-70 to the mountains. Those of us in East County can enjoy ice skating outdoors in Downtown Louisville. It’s quick drive for some quality outdoor fun.

Downtown Louisville Ice Skating Rink is located at the Steinbaugh Pavilion. This area is transformed by Boulder Creek each season to become an outdoor ice skating rink! Its a small, informal space where you can enjoy outdoor fun throughout the winter months. Skating is open from November through February each year.

Our family went to the rink on one of the days off of school. We were not the only ones who had this brilliant idea. When we got there we found that the place was packed! Everyone was out on the ice having a grand time. Almost too much fun… with all the kids racing back and forth it was more a free-for-all. But life is like that with kids around anyway, and it makes things more fun. Plus, with everyone there we got the additional advantage of meeting up with our friends!

Note hat this rink is more of a friendly, fun place to meet friends and play. It’s not big enough for ice hockey and they don’t have a Zamboni. That means the ice s a bit ruff and not ideal for pirouettes. But don’t let that stop you! Sometimes things that aren’t perfect are actually quite fun.

If you have your own ice skates, then lucky you, because the price is just $5 to play around on the ice. If you need to rent skates, it is just $9 for adults and $8 for children. Kids under 3 years old can rent skates for just $4, or they can run around on the ice in their snow boots! It’s up to you based on their ability (and your patience).

The downtown Louisville Ice Skating Rink is the perfect outdoor winter activity for friends and family. Take a day off or go on the weekends and enjoy the amazing ice!
