Ride acyclic. Most humans are like sheep. They like to be in crowds I love to ride during lunch time, when the crowds are queuing in the restaurant, I eat a energy bar and have the lifts to my own. My lunch break is after 2, when the crowds come back again. When they begin to gather for aprés ski, I'm done with lunch break and ride on empty slopes again. A thermos with hot sweet tea is always in the backpack to warm up in the cable cabin.

Don't sleep in your car with it running. Every winter someone goes to sleep and doesn't wake up.

For my big trips to CO I book and pay for them months in advance. I pick a date and confirm it with my group then book hotel and collect money. Then next month I buy plane tickets. Then I rent the car. Oh and mid summer I buy a season pass to the places I will ride enough for it to actually save me money. So after all that when it's time for the trip, it's already paid for and feels free!

And the small portable boot and glove dryers are a hidden gem. Plus like 5 pairs of snowboard socks.

+1. You can save at least 30% on rooms by booking before November. I've also been piecing together my gear needs over the summer and it is ridiculously cheaper than buying in season.
