What we're about

The Denver Boarding Coalition was founded in Sep 2008 for the enjoyment of the snow, the mountain and good friends. Our main focus is to have fun and ride. This being said, we take our riding very seriously and when there is snow, we all know there is riding to be had.
Our group is mainly for the social networking of snowboarders. We spend time together driving to/from the mountain, sitting on the lift, partying, and after all the shenanigans while sharing the dreams of powder days. We have events and get together(s) that happen during the on/off season, that range from snowboarding in the winter to camping in the summer. Basically if you can think it we can do it, and we like to do it cheaply if at all possible; so if you have any ideas or suggestions [as long as they are constructive] we are all ears.
This group is predominately for snowboarders but it is overall for networking and enjoying the mountain so if you ski you are more than welcome on the slopes with us; show respect and respect will be shown. We strive to be Colorado's BEST snowboarding group.

So lace up, strap in and lets ride, remember you can only see the tip of the mountain, and there is so much more to explore!

Jackson Hole *updated hotel info*

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

For those of us with an IKON pass that want to get away from Colorado for a few days, let's check out Jackson Hole! Plan is to drive up on Friday and ride Sat, Sun, Mon, and part of Tuesday before returning to reality. Still doing research on hotels but looking to book a place that is not too expensive. Once I get a better idea of head count, can figure out whether to book a larger room or have us share rooms at one hotel. Will post a happy hour or two to try to figure out carpooling, etc. *UPDATED* A 4 person room has been booked at Snow King resort. If at least 3 more people commit we can upgrade to a 3 bedroom condo at the hotel. Otherwise feel free to book own room at same place or wherever works for you. Will still meet up each day and ride together on the mountain and enjoy dinner and beverages after.

In addition to there will be an après party (FREE FOOD & DRINKS) where team and individual prizes are awarded for fundraising, vertical feet, fastest speed, blue/black runs and mogul run completion.
