It's tempting to hit a local apres hotspot after a day on the slopes or on the trails, but have you ever considered a visit to a museum? Not only do you keep your muscles loose while walking around, but you can learn some pretty cool things. Like travel wasn't always so easy back in the day.

I had intended to do a little snowshoeing in the area and do a quick tour of the museum, but my plans were thwarted by the most interesting conversation I've had in a long time. Have you noticed how some of the people you meet you will never forget.
