Beaver Creek Gingerbread competition! The Results

Today I dropped off the Gingerbread house to Beaver Creek. Only a 3 hour drive on the Freeway. However we had Winter driving conditions which means snow covered roads. Luckily I have 4 wheel drive which i needed to get safely over Vail Pass and the loveland Tunnel. On the way back i counted at least 6 cars that went off the road. Some cars with backdrive slid all over the road or had to give up over Vail Pass. 
Our Entry won 1st price in the professional section which came with $US 1000 prize money. Not bad for a couple of days work. Below are some pictures.
