vacation. I must say, the SchlessmanCommons makes dining and food prep so easy for families. We were literally on the go the whole time we
were at Snow Mountain Ranch which would have made food prep hard but we simply
stopped in the Commons and enjoyed all 3 meals every day. It was so easy and a great way to sit down
and relax for a while as a family.

Mountain” again. We all had such a great
time. I have lived in Colorado my whole life
and there is something about being up in the high country with family. Memories are instantly made and even though
