Sounds fun. I lived in Colorado for 5 years, and we would go skiing multiple times every year. I really enjoyed it, but it's been a while now.

Have a good time.

Have fun! Hubby and I went mountain hiking there during the dating years. Beautiful area.

I'm going to CO (Breck &/or Keystone) in two weeks. Does anyone know how to go about getting some cheaper lift tickets??? I've never been and have no idea what to do or if I'm stuck with the $75/day price (need two days.) Any suggestions???? Thanks.

I've been to Breckenridge and Keystone multiple times each. It was my dad's money, so I don't know how much it was...........but both are worth $75 a day, I'd say.

You could crawl up the mountain

Uh, yea, I hear you about skiing in powder. I don't know why I'm finding it so difficult, especially when it's new and really deep. It's easier to deal with ice... Have fun and be careful how you fall

Have a great time free_pizza!! Hey, skiing powder is the best, it's like floating on a cloud, see:

This is at Willamette Pass, Oregon, closest ski hill to my house, 1 hour 15 min.

I know, you need a lesson and loads of practice. I can ski powder all day on telemark gear, but I'm crap in powder on alpine gear. I guess that's why I stay with the tele skiing.
