Skiing Vail or Breck Monday

Snow should continue into Sun night so Monday should be deep snow and no crowds. Anyone up for the day trip? No particular time to be back in Boulder on Monday.

    by far the best powder day EVER at vail! almost two feet in the backbowls today!!! and it was totally worth the hour wait at the Eisenhower tunnels this morning for avalanche blasting.. hope you guys that left later missed it. all the free lots were filled by the time we for there...should've left at 5:30!

    10 minutes....try 50. Supposedly they are doing avalanche mitigation, will likely be a while longer.

    I-70 at the loveland area/tunnel appears to be closed. It's been a parking lot for the past 10 minutes. Just a heads up to those on their way up.

    anyone want to get out of town at 6:00am? James is right, the roads will be bad at best. Grab your boards and rockered skis, this will be one epic day! So who's on board at the earlier time? I'll even drive if necessary. My number is in the post below. Stephen

    all of you thinking traffic won't be bad or the roads won't be bad...think again.

    Looks like James' car is full for the 6am departure from Boulder. Does anyone else want to team up? I can drive as an added option. $25 1, $12.50 if 2 people. I have room for 3 in total. Send me a call, text, or email tonight if game. I live by 29th/valmont and will pass by the Souther sun. Alternatively, I can passenger.

    I'm game for going tomorrow, Jan 13th, as a passenger. Given the weather I'd prefer to leave earlier than 7am. After reading this thread it sounds like there may be a few different drivers. I'm in for Vail. Someone send me a call/text at[masked] to confirm. Short version
    Vail
    6-6:30am departure since roads could be bad based on tonights weather. Stephen

    Hey Guys,

    I can do Breck I dont have a pass to vail. Are you guys heading to vail or breck?

    January 12, 2014

    • Dan

      heading to vail but if the snow report in the AM heavily favors breck I could be persuaded

    Hey Dan, I'd be up for skiing Monday if we can leave boulder around 7:30 or 7:45. Does that work for you? Mike

      I'm driving up tomorrow and most likely heading to Vail with a friend (Dave) who's not in this discussion. we will be leaving boulder around 7:45. I have room for one or two more. let me know if that timing and location works for anyone. thanks, Mike

      Afraid it won't work for me. Pass not good for vail sadly.

    Hey James,

    I am totally in and good to leave at 6am. Let me know if you have any spot left…

    January 11, 2014

    • Brad G.

    I'd love to spend a weekday in Breck soon (..but Breck only)

    ..happy to pay gas

    not be taking any gear, so just need a seat :)

    ..sent me an e-mail on here

    gas would be $25/one passenger or $12/person with two passengers.

      But sure

      Too early. I don't expect big traffic on a Monday. Glad to connect up there if you want.

      January 11, 2014

  • james

    I might be in, but I'm a first chair kind of rider. I leave boulder @ 6am. I can carry 3 with gear (including myself).

    • Dan

      You have fun. 7a on a weekday seems plenty early.
