I hear ya...Snow Creek ended on Sunday. I'm going to miss my mid week sneak to Snow Creek to ride the park all by myself
Tip to go to CO on a budget.
#1) Super 8 motel in Georgetown is around $65 per night
#2) Fill up at Shell just after you cross into CO...just 10 gallons though...get the 2 for 1 lift ticket deal.
#3) Fill up at another shell before Denver to get a second 2 for 1 lift ticket deal.
#4) Use 2 for 1 tickets at Loveland for 1/2 price lift tickets.
#5) Bring a friend to split the rest of the costs.
If you drive a car with good gas mileage, you can make the trip for around $120 on gas, $65 in lift tickets for 2 days, (1) night in a hotel and pack food from a grocery store $50. You should be able to get 2 days boarding for $250 or less...just pretend I'm the little red dude on your left shoulder with the pitch fork!
