    Unofficial Guide to Keystone

    Sometimes Keystone Resort seems to fall in the shadow of its nearby sister resort of Breckenridge. But it would be a huge mistake to underestimate this resort for many reasons. It has a total vertical of nearly the same at well over 3000’ and a stated total acreage larger than Breck. What it...

    Anti Vail Sentiment

    I'm a new skier. I have been to Heavenly, Squaw, Sierra at Tahoe, Park City, Beaver Creek and Northstar. As such, I don't have a lot of first hand observations on what makes a ski area better than other. I'm curious why there is a lot of anti Vail sentiment on this forum. I think their pass...

    Hi all @amlemus is looking for instruction in Colorado: I moved this discussion to its own thread so it can gain some traction. Any recommendations for good private instructors in one of those areas? Thanks!

    Colorado Driving to Keystone

    Going to Keystone for the first time this weekend and driving from Denver Int'l. Is it better to exit off 70 at Loveland onto US6 and come in from the north, or continue on 70 to Silverthorne and get on to US6 there?

    25 Year Lay-off - Lesson Question

    I’m (finally) returning to skiing after 25 years. I’m 48 now, and took my only lesson at age 12. From there was self taught. At the point I stopped skiing (thanks to a move to Texas, as well as a couple of kids), I could ski just about anything in Southern California. So basically, a Colorado...

    Last week I skied with a legend

    Last week I had the pleasure of skiing with 12-time Paralympic Gold Medalist, Sarah Will. Sarah was a top up and coming racer in the 80s when she suffered a spinal injury while freeskiing in Aspen. The accident left her paralyzed from the waist down. We grew up in the same neighborhood and...

    Colorado Spring Break In Colorado?

    My wife works for a local university and her spring break is mid March. We were thinking of taking a trip to Colorado to ski the Epic resorts. We haven't skied in Colorado so I was wondering if it was worth the trip at this time of the year both condition wise and crowds. I will probably ski 4...

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Vail Galaxy of Resorts: Part 1 of 3

    I’ve had the opportunity to visit a bunch of Vail Resorts in North America over the last four years and explore the full gamut of great experiences they offer. However, I’m going to set the tone of this discussion by using the words "Vail" and "frugal" in the same sentence. The Vail galaxy of...

    Good resort with easy blues?

    Hello, My wife and I have been skiing for a while, and normally go to PCMR every year. But I was looking to go somewhere different just for some variety. Nothing wrong with PCMR, but 7 years in a row, it's time to try somewhere else at least once. My wife doesn't like steep runs, so nice...

    Colorado Breckenridge

    Well, it looks like we're heading to Breckenridge as our first choice in December. Our thoughts, based on some Google noodling, lodging at the base of the Peak 6 chair. This is primarily a kid vacation with the possibility of some decent skiing. Anyone got any suggestions on lodging around...
