Snowshoe is a good spot and a few of us on the board are trying to get together a group for a long weekend. Let us know if you want to get down.

you should make a thread in the meet section about this. We have a lot of people on this forum within driving distance of snowshoe. i think you would get a pretty good turnout.

Yeah, I touched based with hm1sfidc about it at the end of last season. We could all get a huge spot and save money.

Ha, I'll gladly let you take the helm, but I have no problem putting in a little work. I'll contact some folks so we can provide a little notice.

Tbh, I would like to do it maybe early December, when rates are still low... what do you think? I have a Utah trip planned for January and I'm trying to work out another to Colorado after that.

Old thread, but Amen. If you live in Miami, then you're going to have to fly if you want to snowboard. Might as well fly somewhere worth the $$ instead of paying all that cash for a half-ass resort like Sugar mountain.

I too live in Miami. Look at flying into Eagle airport in Colorado. American offers direct flights from MIA to Eagle on Mondays and Fridays for a very reasonable price. From Eagle airport you can be riding the chair to the top at either Beaver Creek or Vail in under 30 min. If you ever want to book a trip shoot me a PM, I am always looking for people to share the cost with.

I've never really considered flyinig into Vail/Eagle... I flew into Denver International my last two times.

How much more expensive is the ticket?

If you shop around you can find a flight into EGE for about $300 round trip. The added expense is definitely worth not having to drive in from Denver.
