Ok,.. My trip is just 3 weeks away. I have a few questions about some minor details before I finalize everything.
I am staying @ The Best Western in Dillon. I decided to use one of the shuttle services from the airport to get to Dillon and I will be renting a car there. Turns out that's cheaper than renting the car at the airport. Plus, I wont have the stress or bother of a 2-3 hour, unfamiliar drive up after the flight! I'll just let Enterprise pick me up @ the hotel!
Any recomendations on which shuttle service to use? (Or which ones to absolutely avoid?) Their prices are all fairly similar, but some appear to have extra charges for x number of bags, etc!
Btw, I can get a pretty good deal on renting a Jeep Renegade for the 5 days. Only about $75-$80 more than a compact fotr the same period. Think it's worth the extra $ to go that route? I plan to ride a couple days each at Copper & Breck. Neither looks to be very far from the hotel. (...I also plan a little exploring in Breck, since there's no night riding to be done!) I've driven 2WD's in snow since I'm 16, but I've read so many horror stories here about the traffic shit shows you see when it snows,...
Next,.. Naturally, I am planning on bringing my 157 Proto CT. I am also considering bringing my 163W Arbor Roundhouse rather than the 159 Rome GR. Being a wide, It's too much work for just riding the groomers, but I thought if I luck out & get a big POW dump, it would be perfect! Anyone have any thoughts on that, Pro or Con? Or will hauling 2 boards just be a waste of effort & space?
Lastly,... I know I'll only be there a short time, and since it's during the week, I know that my opportunities to meet & ride with any of you local guys is a bit iffy! But,.. If anyone can or is willing to meet up & go a few laps with me? I would certainly enjoy a chance to meet up with some of you folks! (...Also, I am not expecting anyone to hang around with me if I can't keep up either because of my lack of skills or conditioning! If I prove I can't hang? Bail!! No hard feelings whatsoever!)
So,.. If anyone's interested in maybe hooking up either @ Copper or Breck. Shoot me a pm & we'll trade info! (If I know ahead of time who's available, where & when? It's easier to pick the days on my advance purchase lift tickets.) Otherwise, I'll just play it by ear!
Thanks! I'm really looking forward to this!!
