Dear Coloradans

#227582 1 year, 7 months ago
Hehe, I know there was some talk about a possible ski day on Thursday and Friday during the run of shows. I am arriving in Denver noonish on that Friday, so me and my crew can't make that unfortunately. I gotta go skiing however, and I know it's crazy busy on Saturdays, but that's my only option. Where would you guys suggest for a Saturday ski day? I'll have a ride and could bring 3 more people along also if anyone is interested.

Loveland is closest to Denver, right up i 70, just before the Eisenhower tunnel.

Haven't skied on a Saturday in years, but I'd suspect it will be crowded so plan on standing in lift lines pretty much
wherever you go.

Another option would be Arapaho Basin, which is a bit further than Loveland, but not much. It offers more challenge, and is more of a locals favorite. As you make your way there you'll pass the sign marking the Continental divide.

Both offer reasonable lift ticket prices.

Hope some snow is on the way!

If you want to avoid the tunnel go to Loveland or Eldora. Loveland has some pretty extreme shit on the other side of the highway but if there is no snow none of that stuff will be open. Of course the best skiing is in Summit County but it will be a bitch of a drive back to Broomfield for a show that night. Winter Park is another option that isn't too terribly far.

further west. Only skied there once.

I'd also suggest Winter Park, a bit closer.

I always forget about Eldora. That's probably closest to Broomfield.

Thanks for the suggestions guys I really do appreciate it. So Dru, Phil, and I have room for 3 more riders to ski on the 23rd. If anyone is down let me know.

Good Times

You used to be able to get discount lift tickets at King Soopers grocery stores, not sure if that's still the case. There might be other places in town to do so, ask the front desk at your hotel. Also, you can find ski rental places on your way up to the mountains if you need to rent gear. You should find one of those in Idaho Springs. Might save you a little time at the mountain.

Go online and see if you can pick up a lift ticket 4 pack to whatever mountain you decide.

Nice! I'll keep my eyes peeled for lift tickets, or may grab them online, they seem a little cheaper if bought at least a week in advance.

Are you gonna be at these shows?
