    @cologirl:  I would do an immediate trip. Live in the moment. Like you said, you don’t know what the future holds or that everything will work out exactly as you plan. You know what they say about the best laid plans. I would definitely take a few days to do something you enjoy together immediatly. If you can afford to take a big trip later (both financially and with your time), then do it. There’s nothing to say you can have your small trip and then a bigger one later.

    It doesn’t matter where you go so long as you are together and alone.

    I love Steamboat – I’m only commenting to validate your idea since I don’t remember the names of the ski runs or restaurants.  Fun fun fun!

    @cologirl:  HELLLLL yes!  Steamboat is the best!!!  The mountain is quite varied and fun, the snow is incredible when it’s fresh, and the tree skiing is amazing.  Do it!  

    Plus you’ll love having a few days to just relax and/or ski after all the craziness.  We actually did our minimoon right after the wedding in Steamboat  <3

    We stay with my husband’s aunt at her sweet condo when we visit, so I don’t have lodging recommendations.  Sweetwater Grill downtown has a great late-night happy hour.  Strawberry Hot Springs is so cool, you have to go.  (Especially in the winter – perfect!)  The mountain will often have bands play right when the lift close, and there are happy hours all over town.  I LOVE STEAMBOAT!

    ETA:  My favorite part of the mountain for tree skiing are the 1 O’Clock, 2 O’Clock, etc runs.

    It sounds like you can afford to do it and you can take the time off, so do it.  It may mean the big trip gets pushed off by a few more months but at least you’ll have a nice mini-moon to enjoy right away.

    @cologirl:  I actually just got back from Steamboat Springs at the beginning of September! My best friend’s parents have an amazing house out there and they were nice enough to let me come out there while my best friend is back from Germany for a bit. 

    If you want to PM me, I can show you TONS of pictures and tell you all about it! I just don’t want to share those personal pics here on the main forums. 🙂
