    So, are you still dreaming of snow? Are you this kind of skiier? (See Pic below- the slope is called RopedeDope:)) You have to hike to this one!

    A little site I found, packed with snowboarding...everything!

    Booyah Basin - Silverton, Colorado
    It is a very private ski park, only about 80 visitors a day and they planned it that way, to keep out the condos, stores and all that comes with it!
    Snowboading, skiing in Winter, crazy cycling in the other three seasons, a little town that used to be a boom or bust silver town. Not for everyone- I know!!

    I have to admit I haven't used these in a few days, but, they gave me no problems and worked. Enjoy the snow, no matter what you decide, Black Spear!!
    PS> I am not a great skiier, in fact I am a dangerous one, just ask all the people I knock over!! Once knocked over a WHOLE line of people waiting for the baby ski lift, don't think they bothered to go back!

    Silverton, most of the little ski towns look like this. The big ones, Aspen, Vail, WinterPark, BreckenRidge are crowded and pricey! You could wear your self out trying to get in a couple of turns!

    These are all the Western Range places, they are not soo touristy.

    :D As some may remember, I have told about being a world traveler. I have been to some of the most famous ski resorts in the world (Colorado, Germany, Austria, and California). I have loved the lodges at each and every one. Have asked those who were with me to not break any bones, and told them I would be right here at the lodge when they were done.

    Thanks

    ;) :p :eek:

    Wildman,

    Why not take the train from Denver to one of the resorts? Then you got the city and the mountains. They have a lounge on the train too. :D

    Dreaming, no, not at all, we are coming, and have decided on Whistler for a week in late February next year.


    You are kidding right? Where are the Quad lifts, where are the restaurants and warm fire places while I eat my mid morning snack, hot lunch and afternoon snack? I don't see the hotel nearby with a hot tub... :D

    :D :D :D

    :) Ah, much better sights at the lodges I think (snow bunnies). I know they got better bars (bar maids). Ah to be young again! Ouch! That was the spouse smacking me.

    Thanks
