Mountain Collective Tour 2015

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Michel & I are doing a 28 day Mountain Collective tour of Mammoth/Squaw/AltaBird/Aspen/Jackson from 8 Feb to 7 Mar.  Would love to hook up with anyone who might be around while we're out there:cool

 

Michel is a low intermediate showing steady improvement and I'm an advanced skier who skis a fair amount of expert rated stuff when the snow is soft.  Michel is awesome in that I get her to terrain she can ski and then go to whatever looks good for me for most of the rest of the day with us meeting for lunch.

 

We haven't been to Mammoth, so that will be new but we have anywhere from one up to many days at the other areas.

 

Our dates which are somewhat conditions dependent are:

 

Mammoth 10-11 Feb  staying Mammoth Lakes

 

Squaw      12/13 Feb staying Reno

 

Utah          15-20 Feb  with AltaBird days TBD  staying Midvale

 

Aspen       22-25 Feb  then off to the Jackson Hole Gathering  staying Snowmass Village

 

 

Hope to meet up and ski or just share a beverage/meal with anyone who will be around:)

 

 

Think snow!

I might be skiing AltaBird in that time frame. I'm an upper intermediate/ advance myself.

I'll know more early Feb.

I will also be at Alta/Snowbird starting Feb. 15 or 16 for a few days, then on to Aspen for a few more days (skiing Snowmass and Highlands) and then on to the J.H Gathering.

 

While in Utah I will be staying in my 1991 (red and white) Dodge with Phoenix popup truck camper.at the Ski Shuttle Bus parking lot across the street from the Sandy Community Center (showers, sauna, jetted spa, swimming pool).

 

While at Aspen I will be staying at the Aspen-Basalt Campground in Basalt. I plan on getting a reservation for Feb.21-23.

 

If any Bears spot my truck&camper feel free to give a knock on the door.

Cool, I'm pretty sure I'll be skiing on Mon. Feb. 16. It would be fun to ski with others. I'll confirm later as the time gets closer to make sure I have no change in plans...

I might be in Aspen on these days, still trying to find some good and not extremely overpriced place to stay though...

end of february seems extremely difficult and expensive to find a good place, even hotels in midvale/sandy are twice as much as I payed during the holidays!

I am very happy at the Snowmass Inn. $140 plus tax and fee becomes about $160. Strange to call that cheap, but around here it is. If you have the nerves for it, it was $100 as a last minute special (long after I had booked ).

But then this is a slow week. Might be different your week.

Free room at Targhee!

 

Posting this info again for anyone it might benefit.  Michel and I are in the air on our way to Vegas and then driving to Targhee on Mon 9 Feb.  We have a free room with it's own bath available for a board member/members in our 2 bedroom condo for the nights of 9-12 Feb if anyone wants to head this way.

 

We would have posted this sooner but the decision to bail on Tahoe wasn't made until Thursday.  Hope this can help someone.

Funny thing

How are current conditions em Aspen/Snowmass? I'm having a hard time finding good information other than the ~10" of snowfall in the last 30 days. I'm also trying to do some trip end of february, wife wants to go to Aspen, but it's hard to argue in a 10" vs 66" discussion when you compare to Jackson. Looks like jackson and grand targhee are the only safe bets right now, or maybe the not so risky.

 

how is Aspen/Snowmass skiing?

post #16 of 17
Aspen was still skiing well on Thursday. It's been really warm the last few days and if it gets cold, it will be hard.

Targhee condo room is spoken for by another board member.

 

 

And Shredhead I've got 2 weeks until I get to Aspen so hopefully a storm or two rolls through (temps look high again for this week).  If not Snowmass has plenty of groomers to make it fun going fast.  Let me know if you'll be around at all skiing 22-25 Feb.  Same for you MFA if your trip falls on any of those dates.

 

I'm off to Targhee tomorrow:cool
