What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
We’re heading to Vail Ski Resort. We’ll be meeting at 0630am at Wooly Mammoth in the JJ section of the lots. Please come prepared with $20 depending on costs to support the driver with gas, wear and tear, and parking costs. We’ll be parking in the Red sandstone park 725 N frontage road (parking is super expensive in Vail) parking lot, and we'll shuttle from there. I’ll make sure everyone has a chance to get to know the group and exchange numbers, and then we can get everyone in a car and up we go. I typically like to ski for 5-7 hours. I’m also happy to arrange trips to Idaho Springs for a warm dip in the Springs if folks are so inclined on the way back (approx. $24/person), so bring a swim suit if you’re interested. Skiing is inherently risky. By signing up for this event, you agree to ski and transport to/from the resort at your own risk.
Specializing in European & American Style Beers Green Mountain Beer Company is the result of a shared vision by a small group of friends. Formerly a worker at Big Corporate Brewery, head brewer Brian Milhaupt was fascinated by the craft of brewing and was inspired to master the artisanal old world Europe styles of beer. Batch after batch, his brews gradually improved to the point that the friends he shared it with repeatedly told him his beer was so good, he ought to sell it. Their encouragement got the wheels turning and soon, Brian decided he would open a brewery. Dogs are welcome on the patio. (Thor & Sniper from ABC's The Bachelor will be in attendance) Will update with what food truck will be around as soon as they update and Outside food is welcome ... Moe's BBQ next door or food from the Thirsty Bear a few doors down are also great options!!
Park-'n-Ride - Wooly Mammoth lot - Section DD - Exit 259 off I-70 West
Epic Skiing at Breckenridge We have a wide range of abilities from beginners to advanced so there is always someone fun to ski or ride with. Carpooling: We'll meet at Woolly Mammoth near the "DD" light pole/sign at 5:45am and depart promptly at 6:00am. We arrange carpooling at the parking so there is no need to post messages. Please give your driver $20 CASH for gas, parking, vehicle use, etc. Please pay your driver at the parking lot in the morning before we leave. Also be sure to exchange phone numbers with people in your carpool. Meeting on Mountain: We'll meet at 8:15am in the Ski Hill Grill at the base of Peak 8. A chance for all the carpools to connect and to grab a coffee or hot chocolate and use the restrooms. At 8:30am we will gather for a quick group picture by the ski racks outside the Ski Hill Grill near the lift line for the Colorado Super Chair. You can find me in my bright Yellow/Green pants, Orange jacket. Lunch: We'll meet for lunch at 11:30am in the upper level of Vista Haus on Peak 8 at the top of the Colorado Super Chair. Après Ski: After skiing we can socialize and reconnect with our carpools in the Ski Hill Grill at the base of Peak 8. We will be inside to the left as you enter near the fireplace. Some people may arrive as early as 2:00 while others will ski until the lifts close at 4:00. Ability Levels: We have skiers and riders of all abilities from first time beginners to awesome experts. We start off on the Colorado Super Chair as a group and then naturally split up into groups based on ability and style. If you get separated from your group then enjoy your skiing and reconnect at lunch or après. Please choose to ski in areas within your ability. Don't let anyone talk you into going into difficult areas that you are not ready for. Not only is it dangerous or at least frustrating, it also encourages very poor skiing habits. DO NOT ASK FOR OR GIVE ADVICE! If you want to learn please take a lesson from a Certified Professional Ski Instructor. CONTACT INFO: Any questions, message me through Meetup or text or call me at[masked] Looking forward to seeing you all for some Epic Skiing! --JP
Let's make some turns at Breckenridge on a Friday when traffic is lighter and the slopes aren't as crowded. Carpooling: Meet at Woolly Mammoth under the "JJ" lightpole/sign at 6:30 am for wheels on the road at 6:45 am SHARP! If you're a carpool rider, the expectation is you give your driver CASH for your driver for gas, parking, wear and tear on the vehicle and car wash after the weekend. Meeting on Mountain: Meet at the base of Peak 8, Colorado Super Chair, at 8:30 am. Look for me by the ski racks. I'm in a red jacket, bright red helmet. Meeting for lunch: Meet at Vista Haus, top of Peak 8, at 11:30 am. Vista Haus can be accessed via the Colorado Super Chair. If you get there before I do, push some tables together and put a post on this event site to let us all know where we're gathering. If I'm there first, I'll do the same and put a post in this event listing letting everyone know where to look for us. Any questions my email is [masked], cell is[masked]
