Well... I can't even guess then how bad and not developed the settlement was when you were here. But I can guess that you most likely stood at "Gornie Vershiny", while that was the most popular hotel here at that time. It didn't change either. Though now here exist a lot of new hotels that are very nice.

Hey - I'm Paul, I live in Denver and head up to Summit County at least once a week once the season is in full gear. I mostly ride trees and back country, but will still take a run through the park once in a while. I also am starting to volunteer at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center this year.

Anyone from Denver interested in ride sharing let me know, I work from home and am usually down to head up either the middle of the week or weekends.

New old noob... huh?

Good morning all!

Finally got around to signing up here!

I gotta say thanks for this place as I've spent a good amount of time reading posts here trying to figure out as much as I can about equipment.

About me, I'm 47 years young, married with a 10 year old daughter.

I guess I'm a beginner, though I have skied and snowboarded before. It's been over 10 years though. I skied for about 5-6 years but my last 2 seasons I had switched to boarding only.

I moved back home two years ago. Originally from Denver but was relocated against my will when I was eight years old.

Grew up in the Bay Area, Califorgedaboudit.

Moved the family here from San Jose and bought our first house.

I'm psyched to be back home. To be able to see Broncos games in person, or hell, to be able to watch them every time they play on TV.

Also psyched to hit the mountains here this season! I've never been on them here in my home state. California and Utah are the only places I've hit the mountain before.

Thanks again for this awesome resource!

Hello all,

I just moved back to CO after living in AZ for 5 years. Little bit of background on me -

Born and raised until I was 12 in Southern California (OC).
Moved with my family to CO.
Then at age 23 moved to AZ.
Now back in CO at age 28.

Was really into snowboarding when I lived here before and plan to pick up where I left off. Have met some good people on other forums, hoping to do the same here.
