Fuck it, I'll try and jib the fallen over tree and the sasquatch.

I'm actually thinking of pushing the whole trip back into January so we can ensure having whole resorts open and possibly better snow/coverage. But I also can't wait till January to board. Damn tough decisions. Oh well I'll keep an eye on the snow

I will, but it won't be denver twice. Not from San Diego. It'll be some Tahoe. Def. some Bear Mtn and Mammoth. Road trip to SLC. And hoping for whistler/seattle area. But I get denver just once. And I want it to be epic.

I was riding waist deep snow at Breck opening week last year I wouldn't sweat it too much. December the whole mountain is usually open.

I'm alright with that. As long as you don't sabotage the lifts or burn down wherever I end up staying, I'll be ok. Even then, I could hike for my turns, find another place to stag or do it car danchi if I had to.

im kind of in the same boat. first trip out west. Just booked flights to denver tonight for Dec 26th through 30th. Planning on getting 4 days in. trying to remain somewhat economical, yet still have a great experience.

Mountains we are looking at are loveland. 4 lifts for like $140 total. thought that was a pretty good deal if we can split the lifts to 2 each and spend two days on other mountains...though concerned there is a reason it is half the price of all the others.
Keystone, or I think it is the 4 mountain pass for like $100 a day
Copper Mountain for about $90 a day.

Are those OK choices? I am sure any one of them will kick anything's arse I have been on yet...exept white face, which I was not ready for at the time...but I still want a good all round experience. some park, glades, hopefully pow. All round, all mountain. I would like one mountain tha tmay provide some of all of it...of course, I dont expect any to have the best of all of it. if that makes sense.

Thanks for any input.

me and my friends used to make trips out to denver in the early seasons (thanks giving, early to mid dec)

loveland is great...but id skip keystone. I just never had a good day at keystone with the crowd and the terrain they have opened.
