Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

snowHeads trip to Colorado Mar/05?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hmmm... Got to thinking... Wonder if we could arrange a snowHeads event in Colorado for a year from now (mid-March). Any interest? If someone on your side of the pond could help arrange flights for a group, I could likely handle setting things up for transfers and lodging at Summit, Steamboat, Aspen, or...?! Exclamation

Worth considering? snowHead

OK. After you posted, I realized that I should have made it a poll. Well, let's leave it go for a day or two, then figure out the process...

For this thread, what would you like to have on the trip? What would be your interests? One area or multiple? Fancy or down-to-earth?

Cracking idea - how much cheaper & better do you think we could make it with local knowledge and group discounts?

masopa, seems to me that we should be able to do pretty good, both in terms of lodging and lifts. I am familiar with doing this from a couple of angles--used to organize trips back in California for the IBM ski club and also work on a retreat team that has stayed in many nice facilities in the mountains. I'm sure we can come up with some really good options.

I might be up for it. Depends on the Epic trips next year - one is to Kicking Horse, and the Epic Academy hasn't been announced yet. Also I'd need to tie it in with doing my level 1. (Although maybe I could get Ric or Bob to do the exam)

Which resort were you thinking?

Certainly interested. I may well be on a budget (depends on the job situation) but I'm sure the "core" bits can be organised en-masse and then if people want to then stay in expensive hotels, they can.

Sadly got a bit used to skiing on somewhat less of a budget in my previous job, but hey ho - nothing lasts forever!

Wear The Fox Hat, there are options, of course. It appears at this point that I'll be part of the Guide program at Copper, so that would likely be a good option. However, with all of Summit County easily accessible, I'll take votes! Steamboat? Aspen?

I'll also speak with Nolo about plans for ESA3. Would you like them to be near the same time, WTFH?

Well, I'd like to go back to WP, but then everyone knows that. Sitting in the hottubs in beaver village lodge after an exhaustingly happy day on Mary Jane...

But I'd like to ski A-basin, and Aspen (OK, I want to ski with Weems at Aspen), or Steamboat, maybe Vail (with Ric)
Let's face it, I'll ski almost anywhere!

Not Whistler, Catherine's Area in Alta, Utah. Neither of which are in Colorado, which is what this thread is about, so I'll take the rest of this conversation off line.

If someone else wants to organize for Utah, that's fine. It's just much easier for me to organize near here; I might even visit the lodgings this summer!

I'm interested, but late March would suit me better than mid-March. Also, since transatlantic travel times demand that you spend at least a couple of weeks Stateside, just to get over the jetlag, another thought pops into my head.

- Road trip.

Any takers?

We did a road trip ;ast year in Canada. Two weeks - fly to calgary, drive to fernie for three days, on to Panorama for three days, two days at Kicking Horse, then Banff wher we spent two days at Sunshine, two days at lake louise and one glorious powder day at Norquay with the whole hill to ourslves more or less.

Skiing so many places was interesting but I wouldn;t travel so much next time : packing so regularly is a bit of a bind, and byt the time youre; getting to know the hill it;s time to move on.

The way to get around that of course is to ski with locals, and to ski many areas from a single base - like we did at Lake Tahoe a few years ago wher we skiied four different resorts from our base in South Lake Tahoe

Road trip would be out for me (not enough holidays with work to waste time driving), but then again, jetlag isn't a big issue for me either - just the first night, then I'll be OK.
