Default Keystone/Breckenridge/Vail/Beaver Creek

So guys, I havent posted in this forum before but I figured Id get your opinions. Im a chair member of my college's snowboard club. The 5 chairs, including myself, have been granted with the task of organizing a trip for 80+ kids out west for a second consecutive year.

The trip Ive located using Mountain Reservations, is a Keystone Breckenridge combo ticket with limited use at vail and Beaver creek for four days. The ticket costs $160 for four days with 280 per night for a 3 bedroom lodge. Including Lodging food bussing out there and back and lift tickets the trip will cost roughly 300-350 per person to go for 4 days of riding and 4 nights of lodging.

Would you go on this trip? Last year we went to Winter Park for 4 days and it was the same cost, we havent decided definitively on this trip but its out best option at the moment.

Opinions?

Staying in Summit is a quite a bit more of a scene than in Winterpark. Lot's more to do after the slopes close around there. Plus you do have multiple resorts to choose from. Copper is also located in the area. Vail is about 20 minutes or so from Keystone. If you wanted to re visit Winterpark, it's close enough for a day. If your group is going to be of drinking age, not a bad deal. If not, it's still decent, buy you may look at packages in Utah too. I guess if you are bussing in Colorado would probably be the least expensive, but lodging and lift tickets tend to be cheaper in Utah.

that's not a bad deal. Where are you staying is the real question. Let me know and I can tell you a bit more.

weve got 3 br condos in alpine ridge. which has busses that run to all 4 hills. because we are using coach busses to get 80+ kids out there any other transportation or traveling to mountains and additional lift tickets will be an independent venture on the members part.

As a chair I wont be able to travel much because Im in a position of responsibility and will probably be taking kids to the hospital, or bailing them out of jail (happened last year). We tend to party as a group with kegs of keystone and ugly sweater parties. its always a fun trip

We originally were looking at a trip to Big Sky and Park City, but lift tickets to one hill were the same price (40 per person per day) for one hill. Lodging was extreme (every single person needed a CC on file for damage deposit) and high priced, and the busses would have been more

What is this the ASU Snowdevils? I like watching girls get drunk and party are they of legal age and like guys with wicked goggle tans?

Anyways if you're staying in the one I think you're at that's a decent location. If people are looking to go to other mountains just hit up the transfer center right by the Gondola. If they want to go to Keystone/ A basin then they'll want to hit up the Swan Mountain Flyer it picks up every hour and runs till I believe 9 or 10 p.m. If they're going to Copper they need to hop on the Frisco bus and take that to the transfer center get off the bus and walk to the last bus in the line up. The copper bus only runs at 40 after so time accordingly.

just make sure your at the hills when we are. we will probably be bringing about 35-40 girls out with us. and I dont know what the ASU snowdevils are but last year in 6 days I went through 8 40's of Mickeys Ice, 1 bottle of UV, 1 bottle of jack, a case of high life and a 1/4 oz. it was a pretty fun trip

and depends on what you define as legal age... They are all over 18 if thats what your talking about, and there are some old enough to hit the bars.

I guess if I lived somewhere I couldn't ride all the time I'd take that trip. Thats not a bad deal for 4 tickets to the Summit resorts really and you could night ride Keystone if you wanted. May as well just do it if thats the best deal you found. Good partying up that way, but don't let those summit county cops get ahold of any underage drinkers I don't think they would be too happy about it. Hope the trip turns out well.

Im going to try to keep all the underagers around the condos for drinking. I wont be 21 when I get out there, so that will make it a bit easier but its going to be a sweet trip once it gets going. Im also excited for my own personal trip to Jacksonhole come March!!
