    Colorado Anyone skied Echo Mountain?

    AKA - I’m going through withdrawal. For a variety of reasons (concussion, school, holiday) my skiing prospect for the next several weeks is poor. I’m starting to reach a level of strategizing options. Echo Mountain offers night skiing and relatively cheap skiing overall. I realize that this...

    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?

    Colorado Frisco or Silverthorne: Where to stay if visiting Copper?

    Hi Folks, If one was trying to put together a cheap trip using their Ikon pass and wanted to ski Copper, which town would you choose to stay in and why? I would like some place to Apres after the day but I have many friends in low places and like it that way. Would like to avoid the need for...

    Vonn injury at Copper

    LV was taken off the SG course by sled today and, I am told, helicoptered off the mountain. I don't have any more details. My daughters got an autograph not 30 minutes before. Hope it's nothing too serious and the curse of Copper doesn't prevent a start at Lake Louise. Has anyone heard...

    As many of you know, Arapahoe Basin is set to become a free agent after this 2018/2019 ski season ends. What are your predictions for what they will do? Any suggestions that might help them make their decision easier?

    Colorado Need geography lesson for "downtown" Aspen...

    Headed to Aspen in later February and I've been researching accommodations. I've reached out to some properties for more info (like how long the walk is to the shuttle). St Moritz was low on the list anyway, but when a property manager got back to me, she/he said it was a "awesome" location...
