Ski Copper on Superbowl Sunday - 6 am Harmony Park'n ride

Take advantage of the best Sunday return-from-the-slopes drive of the year and ski Copper Mtn on Super Bowl Sunday. We may leave a bit earlier to miss traffic going up to the slopes.

DETAILS! 1) Snow and cold temps are forecast this week and 2) Superbowl starts at 4:30, so let's get an early start on Sunday. Fort Collins folks can meet at the Harmony Park'n Ride at 6:00 am (tell me if this is too early), and the Denver people can meet at Wool Mammoth lot at 7:00. A group will go up Flyer (to Timberline and Sierra lifts) first thing. The plan is to meet for lunch at Jack's Place (between Eagle and Flyer lift bases) at 12:30 and again around 4. People in each car can decide how they want to leave - stay for a beer (coffee for drivers, please) or bogie home for the 2nd half. Please make sure everyone gets a ride home - do not leave without accounting for everyone who came up with you! Please e-mail me with (1) when and where you want to meet us and (2) if you can drive, and how many people you can take if yes. People can e-mail me their phone numbers if you want phone contact. My phone # is[masked]-2654. On Friday, I will propose a more specifics.

    Wonderful ski day! Sunny skies, great snow, fun people and a 2 hour drive each way. All ski days should be like this! Marta and Renae were greast ski buddies and fun to catch up with the rest of the group late in the day. And yes, Marta, you kick ass too!

    Fantastic day on the slopes! Blue sky, fun, adventurous people and wonderful snow! Couldn't ask for a better day! :-)

  • Eric E.

    What a great day - clear skies, bottomless packed powder, and a great crew of zany skiers. And a seamless ride home - at one point, we could only see one car in front of us as we sliced through Denver...

    3 · February 2

    • Marta

      Ditto what Eric said. A truly epic day. One of my best ski days EVER! Kay and Renae - you kick ass! Loved skiing with you and can't wait to do it again!

      Hi Kay, I ended up going today to the mountain, so don't count me in for tomorrow. I hope you have a good day tomorrow. The snow is wonderful. Take care and hopefully next time.

      February 1

    • Eric E.

      Hey Kay, Why don't you leave it at the three of you - this way there will be three in each car from Fort Collins.

      1 · February 1

  • Eric E.

    OK, here is what I've got:
    9 people will meet us up there (Sharon+1, Christie, Misty, Nancy+1, Paul & Marshall+1. If you want a text when I arrive, please confirm this with an e-mail to me (click on my profile for the link) w/your number - it will remain confidential.

    Kay will be meeting Marta, Renae & Roxana from Harmony Park'n ride at 6:30. ROXANA, if you need an extra seat, buzz me ASAP.

    Eric & Dani will leave Fort Collins at 6:00 and pick up Marcia at the Loveland park'n ride at 6:20. We are leaving a little earlier due to traffic - people reported a 3 hour trip from Denver today...

    Tina will be meeting the other Tina + Catherine + Christyanne at the Woolly Mammoth lot at Morrison. Please share phone numbers, meeting time and meeting place - across from the gas station? The DD sign? I can drop by and squeeze another in my red Xterra if needed, but please let me know who this would be. Tinas, can you organize this?

    See you tomorrow! Eric

    3 · February 1

    • Tina H

      Across from gas station is fine. I can fit all 3 and me in the truck, slightly tight fit since back of truck is open & I want boots warm but will make it work at 7am. [masked] text me contact info tonight. Meetup info tends to disappear the day of meetup fyi.

      February 1

  • Catherine M

    Tina, Tina, and Christyanne, whats the plan for tomorrow? 7am at the DD sign? shoot me an email to let me know what's up

    February 1

  • Eric E.

    Sat. 4 pm snow, road and weather report:
    Snow at Copper was fabulous today - mix of deep packed powder and patches of deep pow for those who wanted to rabbit it. Tomorrow should be more of the same, but under clear skies instead of today's snowy clouds, which kept slope conditions pristine. The ride home was good - 2.2 hrs instead of 5 hours on the way up. Snowiest place was Fort Collins - elsewhere, roads were wet in places (esp. Denver) but roads were fast. Watch for ice in the morning and crowded highways - this may be the best skiing of the year!

    2 · February 1

  • Sharon L

    Friday evening update - Dani and I (Eric) skied Copper's 2 feet of new snow today - just wonderful. We met Sharon and Maya there, an are spending the night with them - thus I am using Sharon's computer. I will be back in FC tomorrow - look for a composite of the great self organization that you guys have been doing around 7 pm on Saturday night.

    January 31

  • Trish

    Hmmm...a bit too big a crowd for me. I think I will see how the Bronco's do. Have fun!

    January 23, 2014

    • Eric E.

      No worries - one less to initiate after yesterday's trip!

      I will join you on the dark side

      January 31

  • Nancy B

    My friend Karin and I will be up a little later and join the group for lunch (Jacks?). Then ski with the various groups. Karin is advanced and like bumps so we generally split up on the slope. Someone call me if you don't do Jack's at noon. [masked]-6822. PS I dropped my phone and lost everyone's number.

  • Christyanne M.

    January 29, 2014

    • Eric E.

      Hi Roxana, Let me make a tally tomorrow night - I am hoping we have space for you, and perhaps another.

      January 30, 2014

    January 29, 2014

  • Marta

    Hey guys. I would love to go but the lift ticket price turns me off:( I have epic pass which does not cover Copper. Any ideas where/how to get cheaper ticket?

    January 28, 2014

    • paul f.

      We all have buddy passes that makes it around $60 for the day....might be cheaper..someone could check

      January 28, 2014

    • Marta

      I have it all figured out now. Thanks guys. Looking forward to meeting you!

      January 28, 2014

  • Tina H

    Newbie with this group, with my other ski group there's an expected gas donation amount if you are riding with someone of $12-15 round trip from Woolly Mammoth, I assume it's the same here, let me know if it's different. I'm happy to drive or ride & pay. (Room for 2 more very comfortably Sunday from Woolly Mammoth @715am)[masked]

    January 27, 2014

    • Tina H

      Sounds good, looking forward to seeing you again

      January 27, 2014

    • Tina H

      Consider it done Tina, you're the first confirmed. Text me your phone number when you get a chance in case of weather/traffic etc. Big black F150 truck.

  • Kay C.

    I'm willing to drive and can take 3 passengers who would like to meet at the Harmony Park n Ride a little later - like 6:30 - then go straight to Copper and meet the group at Jack's for lunch. I would appreciate taking someone in my car who is willing to drive on the way home.

    1 · January 27, 2014

    • Eric E.

      Sounds good, Kay - let's see when others want to leave - if no one else wants to leave at 6 am, I can easily leave at a later time, like 6:30.

      January 27, 2014

    • Marta

      I can leave at any time from Harmony P&R. Kay I can drive on the way back.

      January 28, 2014

  • Marcia O.

    Excited to wear Broncos gear AND ski on SBS! I 'll be coming from Greeley if anyone is interested in meeting at Loveland park and ride around 6:45 -7 AM.

    January 27, 2014

    • Eric E.

      We should be able to get a FC vehicle to drop by Loveland - hold tight as all of this extravaganza self-organizes...

      1 · January 27, 2014

  • Christie

    I'm going to be at Copper Saturday and Sunday. How do I get in touch with people Sunday morning? Will you be meeting somewhere at Copper?

    January 26, 2014

    Going to spend the weekend in Steamboat. See details on Lori's meetup. Looking to share a room.
    Full price is only $350. So split the cost, 3 days for $175.

    January 24, 2014

  • Ash

    I'm not 100% sure yet (Sundays are hard for me) but I would love to hit the slopes with y'all. Will let you know probably by this Sunday. I have a pass but can't drive--do you have room for a passenger?

    January 22, 2014

    • Eric E.

      Hi there, We will start the process of self-organizing the car pooling next week. I don't expect that there will be a problem what with all these folks wanting to go. So, I hope you can get away!

      January 22, 2014

  • Catherine M

    Hey Guys! I'd love to come but I'm down in Denver. What route do you take to get to Copper? Would someone be willing to pick me up in the Morrison carpool lots just of I-70?

    January 11, 2014

    • Tina H

      I'll be meeting there at the Woolly Mammoth lot too -coming from Parker. Is there a meeting time for there?

      January 21, 2014

    • Eric E.

      We will determine some meeting times soon - hold tight for a bit, OK?

      January 21, 2014

  • Renae H.

    Michael wants to go too. The more the merrier. Now we will need two buddy passes.

    January 20, 2014

    • Renae H.

      Michael had second thoughts and decided to either golf, if the weather allows or watch the game.

      January 21, 2014

    • Eric E.

      Tell Michael that I am all bummed out - I was SO looking forward to skiing with the two of you! I do have extra buddy passes ($59), although there is another option for you to consider. For a "very limited time", you can get the Snow Day Pass for $119 (http://www.coppercolo...­) which includes free skiing on Super Bowl Sunday and the last day of the season.as well as any day on which the new snow total at 5:30 am is 4 inches or above. Dani has the pass, and used it once for a 4 inches of snow day - add on the two free days, and she has $4o per day for skiing at Copper Mtn even if we don't hit any other snow days...

      January 21, 2014

  • Renae H.

    Perfect way to spend Super Bowl Sunday! Yeah! I don't have a Copper or Superpass, but I do have a 4 pass for WP. Does anyone have a buddy pass that I could use or should I buy a ticket in FoCo before Feb 2?

    January 20, 2014

  • Sharon L

    Hi All, My daughter and I will be at Copper that weekend and would love to takes some runs with y'all Sunday morning. I might (conditions dependent!) need to make it home to see my one annual football game. :-) GO Broncos!

    January 19, 2014

  • Karin

    Have a great time! Hope you have awesome snow. Wish I could go but will just be getting back from a trip.

    January 14, 2014

  • Christyanne M.

    Hi! I just joined in and would love to carpool. I'll be coming from Boulder, but could easily meet at the Wooly Mammoth lot!

    January 12, 2014

    • Eric E.

      Yes, it looks like we will be meeting Catherine at the Woolly Mammoth lot too - plan on being just across the street from the gas station, and we'll meet you there too. http://goi70.com/file...­

      January 13, 2014

  • Trish

    Thanks. Coming from a family of 5, I know how important first dibs can be :)

    1 · January 10, 2014

  • Eric E.

    Trish, there is room in my Xterra - as the first to ask, you have first dibs. But we may mix it up at the Park 'n Ride depending on who is going.

    January 10, 2014

  • Trish

    hi Eric! I would like to go. hmmm...but I don't have a pass for Copper. Do you know what options there may be for a discount pass? Thnx.

    January 9, 2014

    • Eric E.

      Hey Trish, we'd love to have you join us. You could use one of my friends and family passes - they cost $59, I think (you might check, tho). There may be additional options - anyone else know of some? You can try lifttopia.com as well http://www.liftopia.c...­]

      January 9, 2014

    • Trish

      okay! That sounds great. They are $59. Is there room in your Xterra?

      January 9, 2014

  • Marshall

    I'll be up there already. Do you have a meeting spot and time on the mountain?
