I do plan on getting a season pass to Eldora once I get to CO since it will be by far the closest to Longmont.
Are there stores up there that sell used boards or do you mean from like Craigslist? I was going to buy a setup from EVO.com, but I guess it would not be the best idea to buy from the internet the first time.
And yep I'll have my vehicle with me.
With or without a car I wouldnt limit yourself to Eldora, never been there but I dont need to to know that the 20+ other resorts in CO(8 or so of them within an hour or 2) are 10x better. Even though you are learning after a few weeks of riding your gonna want more options for terrain. But thats just me
