Seems like they opened today officially - limited runs but who cares; season is on!

Hey - definitely let me know how it works out. Keystone & Copper opens Nov 2 and Breck will be open by the 9th. I'm actually strongly considering a run at Copper so I can take a training session at Woodward.

Good luck if you go!

People have their favorites, but Copper is as good as any mountain within a couple hours, it is a great, fun, diverse mountain! My favorite in CO, but I haven't been south of i70 yet.

Also, Woodward is unparalleled if you want to pay for training and progress. If I were spending money on a lesson, I'd go take it at Woodward Copper regardless if my season pass was for elsewhere.

I might hold off on going up to A Basin, if you are looking hitting up Woodard. I have been wanting to get in a training session since two years ago and didn't get a chance to do so yet. Friends that I ride with doesn't believe in pay training to speed up progression, at least not in park riding.

Default Woodward

On Woodward, I'm old and already broke my neck snowboarding once so I was hoping the foam pits would be a place to experiment without injury. Plua they are running big discounts now.

But all that blows now as I broke my finger surfing the swell ahead of Hurricane Sandy last week so I am out of any major sh*t for a few weeks.

Still may hit Killington out here with the new storm but likely will just chill for a few weeks. Argh!!!

You don't really want to hit up Killy or Snow with all man made snow.

Woodward looks good. If you go let me know

Default Trip Cancelled

Indeed, 'cept man-made beats dirt

At this point, I'm very hopeful there is a natural snow blast later this week in VT but we'll see. Likely wont try for Copper till 2013 but depends on my recovery period.

That sucks on the broken finger...there's a storm coming through Friday and Saturday. Hopefully, it should open the door on more storm.
