Ski Vail, Breck or Keystone Friday 1/10/14

There's a winter storm about to hit the mountains this weekend, so we'll make it an up to you kind of morning, and people can decide where they want to go.  I originally posted this trip for Vail, but with the storm coming in, I might prefer to go somewhere closer in if at all.  I will come to Woolly Mammoth to help organize rides for folks whether I choose to ski or not. 

Carpooling: We'll meet at Woolly Mammoth under the JJ lightpole/sign at 6:30 a.m. with wheels on the road at 6:45 a.m.  This gives folks time to find parking, and get yourselves onto the mountain, whichever one you choose.  If you're carpooling don't forget to give your driver some money for gas, parking, wear and tear on vehicle and car wash after the weekend.

Any questions, my email is [masked], cell phone is[masked] 7829.

    I just got off work so I won't be able to make it. But I do plan to go to Keystone later in the morning if the traffic isn't too bad and they have night ski tonight. Anyone For sure heading to Keystone?

    I got a little concussed today at Breck so I probably shouldn't go.. But with this storm coming through how can I say no?!

    Is ANYONE not leaving so early?

    Open snow says 6-8 at beaver creek. I have a jeep with winter tires and can take 2 other people, but with the weather I would rather leave earlier. Let me know if you want to ride up together. Forecast says no snow for at least 10 days after this weekend, so let's enjoy it while it is here

    I vote keystone if we can't go to vail

    Hey, sounds like a good time. Anyone want to meet at WM and leave earlier? We can then rendezvous with the group at lunch. Supposed to snow Thurs night and Fri morning meaning could be an excellent day to ski but could take longer to get there. I am willing to meet at WM as early as 6am. If interested email, call or text-[masked]

    • Ryan

      Are you going to keystone or where ever the snow is best

      January 9, 2014

    • Patrick N

      Ryan I am gonna be at WM in the at 630 and decide from there. Leaning towards keystone, but we will see.

    Skied Keystone yesterday. Was icy, but the coverage was better than A basin or Breckinridge. Not sure about Vail.

    January 9, 2014

  • valerie s.

    Okay folks, just checked all three sites and it's snowing at Keystone, Breck and Vail, with 70% chance of snow for tomorrow as well at all three places. We can sort out who wants to go to where tomorrow morning when we meet at 6:30 a.m. at WM. Regardless of which place you choose, best to get an early start b/c the roads going to the resorts could be interesting. I'm planning to go to Keystone. See you tomorrow, 6:30 am. at JJ sign at Woolly Mammoth. Dress warmly, it's going to be cold!

    I'd like to go up..if the weather is bad, I was thinking of going to Breckenridge. Let me know if anyone's interested.

  • valerie s.

    Folks, I just checked the resort websites and there's a big storm about to come in starting tonight. With that in mind, I changed the details of this meetup. We're going to meet earlier at 6:30 a.m. and folks can choose where they want to ski. I will come to WM to organize carpools. For myself I'm leaning toward Keystone b/c I'd like to be a little closer to home than all the way out in Vail, but I'm taking a wait and see approach. If this changes your plans, please take a moment to change your RSVP. See you tomorrow morning at 6:30 a.m.

      I like the idea of Keystone. If it's windy at Breck and they start closing lifts, there will be super long lines quick. Vail may be a little too far (two passes) with the uncertain weather.

    If anybody is in Summit Co and wants to rideshare and split parking $ at Vail, email me through meetup. If the pass is closed Breck is the backup. Would like to leave either place by early afternoon to try to beat the Friday night storm.

    The snow is wonderful. I was there

    January 9, 2014

  • Jennifer K.

    Thanks for the update, Valerie. I'm still up for Vail and will arrive before 6:30 at the meet-up. That being said, a shorter day is good for me.

    January 9, 2014

  • Eric

    Looking forward to it! Skied keystone today and the conditions were great.

    January 8, 2014

  • valerie s.

    Regarding Vail lift tix, you might try going to the Vail website and see about getting a lift ticket for less but I think you have to do it two days in advance, so it would need to be done today. Other than that, you might ask someone in the group who has an Epic pass if they are willing to let you use one of their buddy passes, which brings down the ticket price.

    January 8, 2014

    • james

      it needs to be some 7 days in advance through snow.com (vail's ticket site). it's only about a $10 discount or less. not really worth it.

      January 8, 2014

  • james

    leave earlier. I made the mistake of leaving boulder at 6:30 last week, and got stuck in traffic getting onto i70 behind the snow plows...

    83% chance that I am in. I can drive and comfortably fit 2 people but will be post call that morning so it might be safer if I am just a passenger. As Valerie said, we can figure it out day of though.

    Just moved here from Az. Any idea on how to get discount lift tickets for Friday?

    January 8, 2014

  • valerie s.

    Folks, it's really not necessary to work out carpool rides ahead of time. When we meet at JJ sign in the morning at Woolly Mammoth, we figure out rides for everyone, including who needs to come back when. I promise it always works out! Have a good week, and see you Friday.

    January 7, 2014

  • Jodi

    any idea about how long or what time you will head back down to denver?

    January 7, 2014

  • Suzanne

    This will be my first meet up with the group and I am looking forward to it! I have a Subaru and can fit 3 other people. Looking forward to meeting all of you!

    Room for a couple of peeps (maybe 3, if my bf doesn't join) in my SUV!

    We can meet at the Wooly Mammoth lot but will need a ride to the mountain. My little honda won't make it :(
