First Trip to Co. Need advice on what to bring.

Its my first trip to Co this week im stayinf grom the 4th to the 8th in Avon and snowboarding at Vail. My parents are under the assumption that I need to wear hiking, Gor-Tex shoes and i think ill be just fine in something way more casual. Im not going to be doing anything besides snowboarding and hanging out in town. Do i really need the hiking shoes are can i dress casual. My dad claims to be the CO expert because he has been to Northrn CO a few times to hunt. I think hes wrong about the hiking shoes....but since i really have no idea can anyone else offer some advice?

I wear hiking boots out to parties/bars/dinners a decent amount of the time. Sometimes just tennis shoes. It is all just personal preference. You can certainly get by in regular shoes, will be colder and better chance at getting wet feet, but people do it all the time.

I'd recommend bringing some snow. We don't have any.

your dad is completely right. if you wear anything in CO besides snowboard or hiking boots you will get stuck. our infrastructure is worse than you can imagine, with no concrete anywhere outside of denver. everyone will know your a tourist and laugh at how stuck you are in avon with your non goretex non hiking shoes.

HAHA what a sick burn!
