Boarding/Skiing in WP

Hey! Hey!

Are you new to Colorado?! Are you new to the winter sports of skiing and snowboarding? Do you have a desire to learn and become addicted like the rest of the world? Well, let's get started!

Let's head up to Winter Park and take some lessons or get some practice in. This is for ANYONE regardless of experience. I'm new to everything so personally I'll be taking lessons so that way my dear friend Brian from this group will teach me after I get some basics down. My goal is for us to have people to just head up there with.

Check out winter park's lessons for those that are interested, I'll be doing the $160 day package that includes 5.5 hours of lessons, lift ticket, lunch, and rental. As it gets closer we can figure out carpools. Let me know if you can drive up there. I might be interested in heading up Saturday night if we can find a place to stay.

      I haven't left yet. I'm parked in the back of the lot outside of whole foods. I haven't seen Meg either.

    Good new everyone, I got Sunday off so full day for me :D and for the rest of you Winter Park has had tons of snow over the last 24 hours with more on its way. Reed, gus, and I are all heading up tonight after I get off work. We will also be waking up super early to catch first chair.

    See you all on the mountain tomorrow.

    I'm pretty certain Brian Reed and I are leaving around 630 or 7 am to get up there nine. I think our car is full but if anyone wants to make a caravan you should send one of us a message

      I wouldn't mind leaving earlier as well, but if the only other car leaving at 9:00 is full, I don't want to leave anyone stranded.

      After talking with who is going to teach a few of us in this group, we might be leaving earlier. Just waiting to hear back.

    Hey all, what is the carpooling situation like? I have a car that can fit 2-3 others with gear, and I plan on leaving early Sunday morning.

      Ryan, I think we could use one more person to drive aside from me. Me, Meg, Sydney and Julie are probably going to leave around 9AM.

      Ok. sounds good. That's about what I was thinking.

    Hi, everyone. I'm new to Colorado, but not new to snowboarding. Is anyone going up that won't be taking lessons? I'm interested in going but don't need the lesson.

      Thanks for answering before I could Reed. Saxon, I sent out an e-mail last night to people going about carpooling and such. Is that something you're interested in? I know some people are still working out if they are going up Saturday night or Sunday morning. Let me know! We're glad to have you join us.

      Hi, Ashley. I would be interested in carpooling. I have a small car that wouldn't be able to fit too many people + gear, but if someone has room for me and my board, I'd love a ride. I can certainly drive up if necessary though. I may also have a friend coming with me, so if he decides to come we may have to alter plans slightly. He said he'd know if he can come by Friday.

    Hi! I just moved here from Tennessee! I have a board but have no idea how to use it :) I'd love to hit up the mountain this Sunday!

      Ya come join us. I will only be up for a half day and will just be on the mountain doing my own thing, or you can join everyone else for a lesson.

    Looks like I will be up there. Not sure if it will be a full or half day for me but either way I will find you guys on the mountain and for lunch :)

    I've been planning on taking some lessons, but it would be cool to do so with people that have no experience. I may join if you don't mind a new guy coming along. My severe lack of balance should make this extra fun.

      That's the point of meet up Tyler! Meet new people! haha. Everyone's new! :) RSVP NOW! =P

      Punch Brothers are in Boulder on the 9th :( ...I'll be watching though in case you all end up changing the date!

    I also have zero experience or equipment but want to learn. The date works for me but I would be down for doing it sooner like the 2nd or the 9th. Looks like you can rent a ski package for $30 a day and a helmet for $6. But I think you can rent locally and take to the mountain for cheaper. Adult Lessons are about $100 for 5.5 hours or a 4 person semi private, 3 hour for $130 (but this seems like it might not be for beginners).

    I also have a friend with a condo in WP that rents it for $25 a night pp if we didn't feel like getting up super early Sunday and the group isn't huge.

      I think Sports Authority is like 25/26 bucks for rental packages. Thanks for info on a place to stay up there James. I think that could be cool. I was thinking the 9th but thought I'd give people more time!

    I might be in for this. I have zero experience or equipment though. Do you know what it'd cost for lessons and equipment rental? Also this date would work for me.
