I'm assuming it will be a nice long while before I can actually "ride", but thanks.
This will be my first time even seeing real snow so I'll probably be busting my ass for a while just trying to walk in it.
1. Hurry up and get a season pass.
2. Even if you only ride 2-3 times a week, unless you are extremely clumsy you'll be able to make your way around on a board in a couple of trips.
3. You should be able to score some pretty decent deals on used boards out there. I'd go that route to save a few hundred.
You're going to have a car, right?
Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."
