I looked at the trail map. Looks like under challenger lift or at least that side, because of trail system and looks like area gets sun. Yessa.... soft big bumps and fun in the sun. Any last hints..... were to drive to, where to park, rent skis (bump ski) if all possible of 62-66 waist. How much time to from Denver.
Yup, the 'C' lift provides access to a plethora of great bump runs. If you're just looking for bumps, look no further. They can be found in every direction in every size and shape. If you're looking for near competition quality zipper lines, get yourself to Sterling Way, Golden Spike, Gandy Dancer, Drunken Frenchman or Phantom Bridge.
Park in the Utah Junction lot (colloquially known as the C lot, but not to be confused with the actual C lot which is on the Winter park side). Uhhh... to be more specific, as you drive up 40 you will come to one of those big electronic signs that always seem to tell you to slow down because it might be slippery. Just past that is the entrance to Mary Jane. Follow the signs to the Utah Junction lot. If it's a weekend, get there early as it fills up quickly. From there you can click into your skis and slide right down to the Challenger lift (C lift) or the Super Gauge.
As far as renting bump skis.... that could be a problem. You'd think it wouldn't be in a place like this, but...
Grand Sports in WP carries Hart skis, hopefully the F17 but I'm not sure if they demo them....tried to check it out but it's Easter don'tcha know and their website gives no clue. I will mosdef check this out tomorrow. Lone Star Ski Rental in Breckenridge demos Hart skis but I suppose it would pay to call ahead and see if they have the F17 available.
Time to and from Denver depends on traffic and where in Denver. Hopefully some locals will chime in on that one for you.
