PM me when you are ready. I spend most of my time at Bert. There are some other spots like RMNP and Vail Pass, but Bert just has the most bang for your buck around here. At least for stuff within 2 hours. Lots of other places like Monarch, Wolf Creek, Buffalo, Cameron, and Red Mountain passes that have a lot of fun stuff too. Just a bit more time and effort required in playing at those spots.
Funny you say that.. As I was typing it I didn't think certification was the right word but rolled with it lol. I get what you're saying though, that goes for any class really - you only get out of it what you put in.

Thanks for the offer though. I'll definitely give you a shout. I have a few low angle spots around RMNP and IPW in mind to start out with too.

P.S. I have a new in box Voile split board binding hardware kit for sale if anyone's interested. They retail 160, selling to anyone local (don't want to deal with online payment and shipping BS) for 120 bucks.

EpicSkiFree will get you a free lifetime pass.

Pulling the plug on the Copper and Basin passes once I lock down my new condo. The air has been crisp and it feels like fall up here.

I want to say there's a price jump around the 9th of 50 bucks then the next one is either mid Oct or early Nov.

That said I could potentially see a spike in more Epic passes this year as people try to get to Whistler. Meanwhile this new splitboard is looking mighty nice.
