If you only had one...

Hey guys, some buddies of mine are going on a month long excursion in colorado for the month of January. Since Im the one with a job, theres no way in hell I could take off for a month, so I was looking to do a week. Of all the resorts in CO, what would you guys consider a must ride for an eastcoaster like myself

wolf creek, durango, t-ride or CB.

haven't been to any but if I was coming to CO for a week, heading straight for Summit county would be silly imo.

anywhere will be awesome with snow, right now there isn't any here or in the forecast, but january is a ways off.

thanks for the suggestions. Ive heard great things about tride from my buddies. Any suggestions on where I should fly into so I can be somewhat near? Ive always heard that tride can be a bit of a hassle to get to

That's the payoff and why the i70 resorts are so popular.

I think you can fly into Durango for a reasonable price, but I believe trying to get anywhere else would cost you some clams. I recall Killclimbz advising someone on such a trip this summer...

yea for example I believe full price Wolf Creek day passes are only $56. I'm planning a trip down there in january for 3-4 days myself.

yea I was looking into wolf creek. It seemed like an old fashioned kinda ski area so Ill be down to check that out. Was also liking that they didnt have slopeside condos and shit. That will definitely keep some of us tourists away lol. U were right, flights to durango are pretty reasonable. Finding some for $300 now. Definitely will suggest this to my bros.
