Trans 4 Turns is a group for transgender people in the Denver area to meet up and ski or snowboard together!
I will only have an Ikon Pass and an Arapahoe Basin Season Pass, so for the 21-22 season, unless an Epic Pass holder is willing to organize events, the group will most likely be focused on Copper Mountain, Winter Park, Eldora, and Arapahoe Basin.
Trans 4 Turns is entirely trans & non-binary inclusive. All ability levels are welcome, though more seasoned skiers/boarders might split off at some point to ski more advanced terrain. Any transgender person over the age of 18 is welcome. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
This group is a safe space for trans people, and is explicitly *not* for cisgender people to meet trans people. As such, cisgender allies will not be accepted as members, but are welcome during events as long as they are accompanied by someone who is trans.
Once the covid situation is more under control, we will meet twice a month or so and hit the slopes. The earliest this will occur is going to be early next season (2021-2022). For single-day events, we'll meet on the mountain at 7:30am-8am, and again for lunch at 1pm. The events will end at 2pm, but people are more than welcome to continue afterwards if they would like.
I am also open to the possibility of multi-day events where attendees share the cost of lodging, as well as lessons for novice skiers, depending on interest. I cannot teach snowboarding or advanced skiing skills.
Additionally, per event, if anyone would like to carpool, I have a mountain-capable vehicle with AWD and can carry 2 or 3 others. We will meet at the dino lots at the base of i70, and will depart at 5:30am-6:30am, depending on the time of year and traffic expectations.
