Breckenridge
 
Here's a shot, we'll see how it goes. I am hitting Breck with 3 friends and myself March 15-22. Unfortunately, members of our group had to bail due to schedule changes. So, we haven't booked anything, yet. We are looking at a few smaller places, but wanted to try to get some others to join-in. If you know of others who would like to go-in on a condo, let me know. If you know someone who has a 1br place available (good luck, right?) for that week, let me know.

Let it Snow!!

If you are going on spring break or on a weekend and plan on getting a lot of runs in, cancel your plans now. I was up there Saturday and there were 25 minute waits to get on a chair. The place is recockulously busy with yuppie scum at all times. If you go during the week it will be better, but not great. You may want to check out Loveland, I ride there constantly and half the time even on the weekend you can damn near ride up, un-buckle your back binding, push a few times and get right on a chair. Just some advice from a local. I've never once waited in line at Loveland more than maybe 5 minutes. The terrain is also sick if you just look.....

Yeah, I am aware of the Yups. However, I snagged an A-Basin Season Pass, last year, which gives me 5 days at Breck. We are coming out Saturday to Saturday, So, we'll be riding Basin, Breck, and Vail on Sunday-Friday. I am not too happy about the timeframe, but this is when I get my week off.

If my pass does some of the other mtns, I'll go there, too. My friends want direct access to downtown so we can do happy hours, closing hours, and walk of pride (some call it shame) hours. I just had to delay my booking and now I d*cked myself with the lack of availability.

WOould a local like yourself be able to tell me how one gets discounted lift tickets for the others in my party, rather than buy the $90/day tickets online?

Mr. Right 01-22-2008 08:04 PM

City Market, King Soopers and I think even Safeway does discounted tickets. Empire Sports Also does discount tickets, and other than that, I don't hit many other mountains aside from Loveland. Too crowded, long lines, expensive, expensive to drink haha, and even worse traffic. You should be able to get some good deals at the places I gave you though.

right i've taken you're advice and me and 3 of my mates are most likely heading out to loveland march 10-15. i'm quite excited. i've got a question for you, how much do you think we'll be able to get discount passes for? i've heard of people paying employees to buy them passes (wp/mj employee tics are 25) any truth to this?

Mr. Right 01-23-2008 01:03 PM

hm maybe, I always just get a pass there so I'm not sure on that but I can find out this week if I can swing any deals. I know that I can get my hands on some coupons to get 2 tickets for $70 which isn't a bad deal. Also I have an entire string of tickets that will get you into Breck, Vail, Keystone, or Beaver Creek for $40. I'll probably let them go for $10 each, probably not the best deal but a day at Vail is $90. I'll see what I can muster.

Let me know how many of those 40/10 passes you have, that would soften the blow a bit for my travel partners. Thanks

huge! what we'll probably do is start with loveland, then decide day to day where to go. i'll let you know what we're thinking as the day nears. we'll throw some beers your way for the trouble too :)

Cool and Cool. You guys just can't tell anyone you bought them, as employees of the mountain get in trouble for that. I would still reccomend checking the City Market etc. because they still might be cheaper. I'll look into getting those Loveland coupons tomorrow or the next day. I've got ten of them altogether.

Here is a link to places that sell discounted Loveland tickets as well Offsite Locations

Group Lift Tickets
