Hi Cassie, welcome to a great sport and this forum.
I'm still learning myself but make sure to watch Snowolf's videos and check out the tips & tricks section. They really do help a lot. Just got back from Loveland myself and had a ball. My first time on a big hill.
I actually grew up East of Denver, college in Greeley, worked all over the front range before moving to MN in '85.
Thanks for the welcome! I lived in Greeley for a while.. I like Longmont much better. I'm excited to go to eldora.. My first two days were at lee canyon outside if Vegas, not the best snow. Actually it was very slushy. Can't wait for next season!
