A-Basin Ski Trip

UPDATE NOV 12:

Looks like we'll need 5-7 cars for the trip to the mountain. Let's meet at 7am at the Target parking lot on 28th and Pearl (park closest to 28th St) on Nov 23 and head out around 7:15am. We'll figure out carpools that morning, or if some of you already have carloads, just head over and meet the rest of us there around 9am.

Once we get there, let's all meet in the rental shop (around 9am) and we can split into ski/snowboard groups there (beginner/intermediate/etc). I'm thinking to bring some dot stickers that we can put on our helmets/jackets so we can tell who's part of our group while on the mountain, in case someone gets lost or wants to join another group.

---------------------------

Itching to get some skiing/snowboarding in... let's try to get at least one trip in before December. Depending on number of people, we'll have a couple of drivers and parking at A-Basin is free. Just pay your drivers for gas. We'll head out early morning for a 1.5-2 hr drive and head back after sunset.

    Sorry about the no service; did not realize this. We'll pick a place with service next time!

    I didn't have service once I got up there :/ next time!

    Totally missed my alarm clock this morning, sorry I was unable to make it. I'm still up for a weekly trip with anyone who wants to go, just let me know. Hope you all are having a great time.

    See you all at 7am in the Target lot if you're planning on carpooling. We'll be leaving soon after, around 7:15 or so and hope to get up to the mountain by 9am.

    I have some green stickers that we can put on our helmets/jackets so we can see who's in our group on the mountain.

    If you're willing to drive, make sure to bring the same number of people back from the mountain as to the mountain... don't want to be leaving anyone behind :) My # is[masked]

      I like the idea of going later as well. Jeff or Ashley, would you want to drive up around 8 or 8:30?

    100% of greens and 80% of blues open as of today... should be a good day

    Just a thought! Bring some cash for drivers for gas! Thanks!

    Hey guys, so I bought my Epic Pass yesterday, and it said it takes 7-10 days to ship, so I call them up and ask them if there's a way I can use the pass this weekend at A-Basin. They say sure, but I have to stop by Keystone and get the pass first. Luckily, Keystone is just 5 mile down the road from A-Basin, so I was wondering, is there anyone else that's in my same position, or maybe someone that wants to also buy an Epic pass (you can buy them at Keystone)? If so, let's carpool together!

    Otherwise, I hope whoever I ride with doesn't mind going the extra few miles. I can bring some cookies as a thank you :)

      Lingyu, just called them and you can get it printed there, there's just about a 30 min wait since they have a line. Thanks for the tip!

    Hi! I'm working on Sat., but is anyone interested in going up on Tuesday this week? I've got the A-Basin/Keystone pass this year. Let me know!

    I can't make this trip, I will be out of the country. However, I do go weekly and I am always looking for people to go with as I usually drive alone. I have the epic pass. So anyone interested in putting together a regular ski/board group message me. [masked]

    • Jeff

      Sounds great. I'll be buying an AWD vehicle soon so will be able to traverse the mountains then.

      Here's my number if you ever go up the days I listed,[masked]-2287. My car isn't the most dependable either :/ so if you drive I'll chip in for gas/ snacks. Just got my local pass in yesterday :)

    I will most likely want to leave the mountain and head back around 1pm. If there are only 2 or 3 runs open I might get a little bored after 4 hours....and I have an afternoon commitment in Boulder. I guess we'll just check in with people's scheduling needs bright and early at the Target parking lot. This will be my first day up since last season, excited!

    I'll be up there already as I have a place with friends. See everyone at 9.

    Hey everyone, I'm going up for the week starting that Saturday and should have room in my car. If you want to sleep in and can have another ride back home, let me know. Hopefully I will see some of you up there.

    Hey, I'm planning on driving and assuming I can figure out How to get my new ski rack on my car... I can probably fit a couple more pairs or skis or a snowboard or two and I will have room for about 3 people as well!

  • Daniel R.

    This will be my first event and I'm excited to see A-Basin. This will be my 3rd time trying to snowboard so I most likely won't be able to keep up, but I'll try! I'd like to carpool if possible, we can take my car or I can throw some gas money if someone else would prefer driving.

    Keystone has demo days on Sunday Nov 24 for only $25 (if you have Epic pass) for unlimited demo rentals if anyone is interested in going. I might check it out.
