How far do you live from your local Mt.? - Page 4

post #91 of 97

Hmmm...I wouldn't count on a sudden change in weather.  It's started to turn to spring in the PNW, slightly warmer weather and a few sunny days.   I'm fortunate to be able to ski at least another month, possibly longer, as well as having to mow the lawn and prune the fruit trees in the same weekend.

 

That said, at some point in my life I'd like to shorten the distance to the slopes.  Sandpoint, Whitefish, Bend, Frisco/Dillon and the general SLC area are sounding better all the time. Oh, yeah, Tahoe, too.   Not to mention Kamloops or Banff.   

 

Anyone actively planning to shorten their distance to a ski mountain?

DUN:  for your future planning, Whitefish is closed now, so the additional month of skiing you are getting wherever wouldn't happen here.  National Forest and grizzly stuff.

Closest for me would be 2hours to the Pocono's or NJ. 3hours + to the Catskills. I haven't skied either area in years.

 

About 5 hrs to central VT. where I usually ski. Only 26 days so far this season. Hope to get a couple more next week. Usually I'm up around 40 days. Lack of snow this year equaled lack of incentive to go.

3 1/2 hours to the mountains here but only 5 minutes to the beach. I ski about 20 -30 days a season but mostly manage to surf all year round. Fair trade off probably.

Now its about 35 minutes to Sunlight (I live in Rifle, CO). Its about 30 miles, but 12 miles are on a slow speed-limit road.

 

 

When I lived in Colorado Springs, my home areas was Monarch and it was about 2:45 and worth every minute.

Jiminy Peak is 25 - 30 min from my home.  I go over before work for a couple of hours and ski laps - 10k - 12k in vertical.  It's fun, but no woods or bumps, just fast.

 

6/7 pass (no Saturday) is 399. per season.  Night skiing 7 days.  So it's an easy pay back, even this year.

Average 2 hours, about 120 miles to Winter Park. 24 days this season, probably will get one more with the current storm and maybe closing weekend if it snows again or manages to stay cool.
