My point on the techinical side of Keystone is really based on the fact that it seems to be a steeper mountain than Breck and Peak 7.

I had been waiting for the site to update, and it finally did. I was hoping they'd do a "buy now and get x number of trips for the rest of this season" kind of deal.

Which is better to hit on a Sunday? Winter Park or Loveland - they're both before the tunnel but present their each unique challenges. My wife is still hanging on greens, so 1) which is less likely...

Hey guys, I've got some questions about the Epic Local Pass.

1) When do they usually go on sale for the next season? I saw the website says something about mid March, not no details.

Thanks all for the input. After wearing them around yesterday I've decided that they're just too comfortable to jump into another pair this season.

Not sure how often the BOA breaks, but that...

I've had them for a few seasons, but until I moved to Colorado, 5 times in a season was the max. They're still in great shape but the idea of cranking down on that double boa and making them more...

Post At what point do you guys upgrade your boots?

Hey all,

I've got a pair of Salomon Synapse boots. They're pretty comfy overall, however I've got two issues:

1) Heel lift when I go toe side on my lead foot
2) I'm getting tired of the...

For quickness, yes Loveland and A-Basin. Loveland has over 1,500 acres to play with and is inexpensive. You just don't get a resort experience though. Basic lodge at the bottom of the hill kind of...

Thanks for all that. I'm not tricky enough to do the whole "buy a ticket" thing. Is Lionshead far away? I thought I saw it as a free lot, but not sure if it's too cumbersome to deal with...

I know Epic doesn't cover those, but they're considered more prestiguous and well known than Loveland. Coming from out of state, I'd never heard of Loveland, but knew of the others I mentioned.

The laughing part would be me all over the Loveland pass instead of hitting all the awesome places I could go to... Winter Park, Copper, Breck, Vail....

However at $47 a day, gotta love that.

Sounds like we'll stick to Vail/Thursday and Breck Friday.

Does anyone know what happens if you buy the lift ticket ahead of time, but need to make a change to dates? Can they recode those cards?
