Kardashian-Jenner Clan Goes To Vail Despite Rob, Blac Chyna’s Engagement; 5 Must-Visit Spots In Colorado's Ski Town
The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" clan escaped the summer heat by heading up to Vail, Colorado for a surprise vacation on Tuesday, April 5. However, nowhere to be found is Rob Kardashian and her fiance, Blac Chyna.
According to Pop Sugar, the Kardashian-Jenner clan tried a lot of activities. Kourtney, Khloe and Kylie went skiing. Kourtney's former beau, Scott Disick, was also spotted bonding with them. Meanwhile, Kendall tried snowboarding while in a printed snowsuit, as per Teen Vogue.
As expected, eldest sister Kim documented the whole trip on social media, posting snaps of the snow-filled Colorado town while spending quality time with her daughter, North West. "I would call this a blizzard, but it's just snowing really hard," Kim said on Snapchat.
On April 4, a day before the Kardashian family landed on Colorado, TMZ reported that Rob and Blac Chyna announced their engagement on Instagram after only two months of dating. Blac Chyna was seen sporting a big diamond ring while Rob was all smiles. The newly engaged couple is not with the Kardashian-Jenner clan in Colorado and, interestingly, the reality family has yet to comment on Rob and Blac Chyna's engagement.
