Winter Park mini-TR

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Winter Park was awesome.  I normally ski a shitty hill, so this trip was real.


Here is a pic of maybe the coolest lodge ever (that I've personally experienced) and with the best pizza:

 Sweet pics, nice TR. Did you venture over to Mary Jane?

Yep, I did make it over to Mary Jane.  Mary Jane I thought was much more difficult than the rest of the ski area, steeper, and just littered with bumps.  Pretty much all the bump runs were a little over my ability level, though it was interesting when I got lost and was forced to ski a portion of one of the black-diamond bump runs.  For this reason (gnarly/steep terrain), I found myself spending the most time over at WP and vasquez ridge areas.

Here is a pic of the Mary Jane Trail, a "blue-black" run, which basically means its pretty steep but is groomed.





Here is a picture of the Berthoud Pass (if you don't know, US-40, connecting I-70 to Winter Park over continental divide).  Reading about this place growing up, it was kind of cool just being there.  And Holy crap, some of the tracks I saw from the road!!!  Front Range locals know how to rip in the backcountry.








And here are some trees that looked very friendly for my level of "glade skiing."

One more pic of the race course:





And a pic taken from the top of the whole resort, at 12,060 ft






And here is a pic somewhere in the middle of the resort.  The Colorado sky is so blue!  Great views there when it cleared up.

Thanks. I didn't get to the Nastar nationals the past few years so I appreciated the videos and pictures. I always had a good time when I went, even when my skiing left something to be desired.
