killclimbz I think it is a good call. January-March are much better months to visit.

Still may hit Killington out here with the new storm but likely will just chill for a few weeks. Argh!!!
That sucks on the broken finger...there's a storm coming through Friday and Saturday. Hopefully, it should open the door on more storm.

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.

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

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.

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.

A-Basin is open - whoo hoo

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