North America, late June or early July?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Coming back from an ACL tear and would love to get a couple of days on snow this summer.  I don't have much time to get away, though, so a hemispheric jump is out of the question, and earning my turns isn't the right option for me right now either (sorry, Dook).

 

What reasonably priced options do I have?  Beartooth Basin comes to mind, but I've never been and have no idea even where to stay. Maybe there's a cat skiing operation somewhere?

Hood can be relatively cheap. Lots of other activities too.

Hood is the other lift served option of which I'm aware.  (A-Basin too, I guess.)

Abay will be done by then.

Whistler's your other option, but it's a little more expensive.

Whistler, is actually cheap in summer - However the skiing is really just for getting bragging rights on  the number of months you skied in a year. It's ok for slushy bumps or your in a training camp but wouldn't recommend making a special trip for it. If your coming up anyway and bothered to bring your gear it would be worth doing for a day.

Bear Tooth Pass by Red Lodge MT. ?  Saw they are running now often into July.  

 

Good snow is pretty tough to come by anywhere with lifts by that time.

No op.  Partial tear.  Just rehab.  Ortho appointment tomorrow, so we'll see.

A-Basin is going to be open at LEAST through June 22. From the way they're talking (Al's blog http://arapahoebasin.blogspot.com/), it looks like they are hoping to stay open into July. It's worth a look if you want to get a few more days in. I'm in the same boat as you. I was in Colorado 2x previously this season. I had a partial MCL tear on my last day there of my 2nd trip (March 2, I think). It pretty much ended my season, but I've been feeling great lately, so I booked a bonzi trip there for this weekend to get a couple more days in.

I don't think A-Basin is going to make it. It's been so warm...they are hitting the point of moving snow to keep base coverage now and there is no pattern change in the forecast.

Beartooth Basin, June 22 last year:  http://www.firsttracksonline.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11007  I posted lots of pics and commentary so you can see whether this appeals to you.

 

It was an interesting place, worth a day or two if you're coming to Yellowstone area for a while.   The next day we chose to ski a backcountry run on the Gardiner Headwall on the way into Yellowstone. http://www.firsttracksonline.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=11013
