In about two weeks I'll be making a road trip and plan to do some skiing in Colorado and Utah.
I'll be flying to Chicago on Good Friday and will be picking up a truck and driving west during the week after Easter.
I am open to suggestions for lodging, dining, skiing, etc.
I'd also appreciate some beta on parking (you can send a PM so that the whole world doesn't fill up your semi-secret rock star parking.) and ski conditions.
What I've heard recently doesn't sound all that optimal in Colorado. Hopefully, things will improve in a couple weeks.
Here is what I have so far:
Tentative route: 80 west though Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, then down through Denver, 70 west then up to Salt Lake City for more skiing before heading back to Nevada.
I'll have two pairs of skis. (Blizzard Magnum 8.7s and PM Gear Lhasa Pows.)
I have an Epic Pass to take care of Arapahoe Basin, Keystone (if they are still open then), Breckenridge, Vail, and Beaver Creek. I also have a 2 for 1 at Winter Park, a 2 for 1 at Solitude, and free tickets to Sundance (if they are still open then) and Canyons.
Arapahoe Basin is the only place I mentioned that I haven't skied before so it is on my to do list. If there are good conditions and/or good deals I am open to checking out some other places.
