Holy crap, $128?!?! The 5pack I bought back in September was $130-$150, so it was only $26-$30 per day. I can't remember the exact price though. My brother lives in FL and will usually come out to ride for one day a year. A few years ago he came out for a whole week and we had a blast. I don't know what we're doing for tickets this year, we've had season passes in the past and he paid $55 with our buddy passes, but the Four Packs do not have that I don't believe. I might pick up a ticket from Craigslist.

Yes, front side above treeline is huge. We've never done it b/c it's all black, but it's on the list.

Get this the day rate at copper is 128 bucks per day!  

The front side areas above the treeline?

Okay cool, I look forward to linking up.

So your brother did not buy the local 5 day pass? What did he pay for the day rate so far this year?

Yeah, definitely would like to meetup.

There's a single blue run, but it's a narrow cat track and was difficult for us at times riding. Easy peasy for skiers though. The backside is fairly small though, the map makes it look bigger than it is. And there are other areas above treeline that are huge, but the map makes them look small.

Holy crap, $300 for a 4day pass?!?!?! We bought our 5day passes for $130 back in September locally. They really stick it to non-residents! The Vail-owned resorts are even worse though, I don't think they discount anything, so you always pay full price which can be $115 at some places/days.

The further out u buy the tickets in a pack the better the deal u get but the difference is not much . For example the 4 day pack is 320 bucks a few days out and 300 2 months out. I am guessing we will all have packs but let's stay in touch on that :) 

It would still be cool to link up for a few runs regardless if blue or black :)

So the whole backside is black diamond? :)

We don't have a Shell station near us or we'd just pickup coupons for you and hand them over. If you like Copper after this trip and plan another trip next year, even buying a year's season pass would bring you on top, especially if you came out more than once.

Wife and I are only up to riding blue runs, maybe black runs if there's a lot of powder to slow us down a bit. We tried the back side last season on a huge powder day and were in way over our heads. I got stuck in a deep section and took 30-40mins to dig myself out. Sucked the life out of me.

My brother will be in town and we'll go to Copper the 27th (Friday) so maybe we could meet up for a few runs. My brother was linking turns and following us on a long green run last year, so we'd have to break off from him to meetup with you. He'll need a ticket too, so if we do the Shell deal we can split it with someone in your group for that day if that works out for you. Do you need to buy them X days in advance to get the cheapest rate?

That is crazy!

We were planning on buying the tickets online in a pack..you can get tickets for 70 dollars a piece if you buy the 5 day pack so that seemed pretty good.  None of us are driving so the Shell promotion probably will not work for us, but thank you for the tip!

Awesome to hear Copper is a sweet mountain and that good food is on tap!

Maybe we can hook up for a day of riding?  It would be awesome to get a local tour of the mountain :)

Thanks again!

Oh awesome, you're gonna have a blast in UT and CO. Copper is definitely an awesome mountain, tons of fun. While Copper isn't in a small town, it is a destination resort with tons of food, drinking, etc. Shell is running a promotion this year, buy 10 gallons of gas and get a buy 1 get 1 voucher. So if you're going in pairs you can save a bunch. Or are you getting lift tickets with your lodging?

So get this... You joined TS 3 days before me, and you've only got a few more posts than me. That's crazy!

^ Thank you for the post! Travel dates will be arriving Thursday early evening on the 19th through 25, which is a Wednesday, so hopefully that keeps us away from the traffic :) For me it is all about the riding so if the mountain is good then I will be stoked.  Good restaurants are a plus of course and the charm of a mountain town is always nice but riding is the priority.  We are staying slope side so the idea is to just take a shuttle from Denver.  I have heard Colorado Mountain Express is a good choice.  I am stoked because I am going to Snowbird in a few weeks so possibly two trips to the Rockies this year and both will be my first time.

Any other tips are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Copper is great, but it depends what you want out of the trip. If you're coming to ride and ride only, then Copper is an excellent choice. It's not in a larger town like Breck, Steamboat, etc. 

We love Copper, it's our favorite resort. But, we live in Denver so we normally drive up for the day. We've also stayed a few nights and had a great time. In fact, my brother is coming out the end of Feb and we'll be at Copper too. Wife and I have 5packs for this season since we didn't get out as much last year to justify a full season pass.

Yes, anything you can do to avoid the soul sucking traffic on I-70 would be ideal. Sat-Sun are the worst. It used to be that we could get there really early and then leave by 2pm and we were fine. But now it doesn't matter what time you leave to head back to Denver, traffic is always a nightmare.

How are you guys getting to the mountains? Renting or shuttle? If you're renting, make sure whoever drives has driven in snow before. It's no joke, and people crash all the time in the mountains because they were usually going too fast for the conditions. Any other questions feel free to ask.

You'll get sick of the Fraser to Vail trip in the winter real quick. I-70 lately has soul sucking traffic from all the front range weekend warriors. We can only go out on the weekends, and no matter what time we leave Copper on a Saturday or Sunday we end up sitting in hours of gridlock traffic. This year we only got a 5 day pass to Copper, I don't think we could tolerate any more days stuck in traffic. They're trying to fix it with more lanes, but that doesn't help when you have clueless morons driving into the mountains that cause accidents left and right.

Summit is definitely a place I would like to purchase a place but it's too expensive for us now. I found some really reasonably priced places in Fraser and really enjoyed WP. In terms of being limited to just WP I don't mind driving from Fraser to vail even for a day trip. I was just curious if anyone had any experience with Fraser. Ive gotten mostly positive feedback on the place. Only one person said it was meth central.

I wouldn't think of Fraser as much more than a tourist based town.  Though not like some in summit.  A lot of Denver people up there.  I've had several friends with places there and they all consider it a great place (of course).  Good summer and winter activities, though like superorb stated, you get what you get.  Unlike summit which has access to multiple resorts.  

It's a cool town, I doubt you would be disappointed.  Silverthorne/Dillon are a good option as well.  Several people like Eagle for it's access to Beaver Creek and Vail, but keeps it's distance from the front range people.  

Guess it all depends on what you want in an area, if you are renting, Fraser and Silverthorne/Dillon would be my recommendation.  If you don't want anyone else there, you have a ton of options within close distances to resorts.

Have you been to any of the other resorts? Fraser pretty much limits you to Fraser. If you're in Summit county you've got a lot more things to do and see. Even Steamboat is a better area I think than Fraser.

Hey guys,
I'm thinking about buying a place in CO. My wife and I have ridden quite a few places and I think I have finally convinced her. She loved Winter Park for the family vibe and I did as well. It's also a plus that the winter park area is reasonably priced. I'm looking at a place in Fraser which is less than 5 miles from the WP resort. I'm just wondering if any of you have any info about this little town. Is it mostly snow bums? Students? Families? Tweakers? Whatever info you have will help. Thanks.

Is there a site that does this?  If not then someone should make one...just saying~

I'll be doing opening day in Aspen this year Smile Making the drive all the way from Chicago. My wife and I did it before, but now we have a child and we're going to make it our family tradition. The plan is to spend Thanksgiving in Aspen every year. I know the snow isn't the best at that time of year, but even without riding it is a great area to spend time in. Plus you can't beat 7 days at the Grand Hyatt for $400 Wink

Hoping in the years to come to buy something there and spend much more time throughout the year there.

That's an awful lot of time and money for the WROD. Maybe I'm spoiled living so close, but we don't enjoy sitting in gridlock traffic for hours. Though there shouldn't be any traffic opening weekend.

Have you been to opening day before? I always avoid it due to only 2 or 3 runs being open and everyone is crammed on those few runs.

I am. The entire drive is pretty boring...not a lot to see in Western KS on into CO. I'll be with some friends though so it won't be bad. We've all made the drive quite a few times over the years. Probably make 3-5 trips this year depending on how our schedules workout.

I retract my post and agree with )(nfinit)(.  Everyone should go to Breck, it is simply the best.  The other resorts in CO do not even come close, do not ever go to any other resort/mountain in CO, there's no point.  Breck is where it's at.

^ That's just one person's opinion.   The poster does not state why he/she thinks "Breck is Best", please follow up with some reasons.  Living in CO and having been to many of the resorts I can tell you Breck is one of the most crowded with the longest lift lines.  IMO, Breck is definitely not the best.

Got back from Denver and must say that Snowmass is Clap

I did get two days of awesome snow with hardly anyone in the mountain..  As usual, Sundays were busy (all the pass holders) but Snowmass is big enough to disperse everyone.

btw : Burnt mountain trail was awesome when it started snowing.

Buttermilk had more park features but less area / Aspen is just okay / Vail was okay the days I was there (icy) / don't know why anyone would go to Winter Park (no offense)

Went to Copper yesterday and had a blast. Not a ton of snow, but everything was soft and there wasn't a ton of people. No lift lines anywhere either made for a fun day. Traffic both ways was non-existent too. Makes me want to do anyhting I can to avoid the soul sucking I-70 weekend drive.

You guys checked out the Burnside Mountain ?

With the addition of Burnt Mountain, the total skiable acreage is now 3,362 acres making Snowmass the second largest ski area in Colorado. The terrain on Burnt Mountain features rolling, low-angle meadows, glades and spectacular views into the valleys between Snowmass and Buttermilk and the Wilderness beyond. This area is a powder skier/boarder’s dream with beautiful terrain that offers a super fun experience with a backcountry feel.

Aspen is a great area.  They are in the zone that is well above average for snow fall for the season.  Unless the moisture maker suddenly shuts off, it'll probably be pretty good.

You'll be fine at snowmass. A lot can change in 3 weeks but march is typically the snowiest month.
