    Skiing at Copper Mtn. - advice needed

    Greetings all, I'll be skiing at Copper for 5 days at the end of the month. I'm staying in Frisco. Is there a shop(s)/ski check at the mountain where I can leave boots and skis overnight so I don't have to schlep them each day? I'm not looking for a free check - just convenience.

    Colorado Uber/Lyft/Taxi from DIA with ski bags

    We're going to Colorado for a week of skiing but rental car prices at Denver airport are so exorbitantly high ($700/wk for mid-size), that I decided to make my reservation at an off-airport Avis, and just Uber/Lyft/Taxi there to pick up the car. I can get a mid-size SUV there for $350 so that's...

    Bus Relief for I-70

    The Colorado Dept. of Transportation will be running busses from Denver to Loveland and Arapahoe Basin during the next ski season. Don't know how many trips per day, but several at $25 for the round trip That won't cure the I-70 congestion, problems, but it sounds like a good alternative to...

    Crested Butte Teo II Expansion Approved

    http://crestedbuttenews.com/2019/06/usfs-publishes-final-approval-for-teo-2-expansion-project/ Approval is a big deal but no timeline yet. I hope Vail is able to move forward with this rapidly. I love Crested Butte but have often scratched it due when traveling with non-expert skiers. This...

    13th Annual May at A-Basin

    In the past we've celebrated Mother's day at A-Basin, which started 13 years ago. Wow, has it really been that many years?

    Unofficial Guide to Keystone

    Sometimes Keystone Resort seems to fall in the shadow of its nearby sister resort of Breckenridge. But it would be a huge mistake to underestimate this resort for many reasons. It has a total vertical of nearly the same at well over 3000’ and a stated total acreage larger than Breck. What it...

    Colorado Crested Butte, Monarch or Breck

    We are going to try to sneak another trip in before our spring break trip with the kids. Having EPIC pass, we would like to try to go that route. Our fear is that Early spring break crowd.

    Hi all, Traveling to ski Steamboat for a week in late March. Liftopia is not helpful for Steamboat tickets so I’m wondering if anyone has suggestions for a less expensive way to buy in advance.
