3 Days in Colorado - Copper, Winter Park or Loveland

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My buddy and I have three days, April 6 - 9, to ski. Should we ski Copper, Winter Park or Loveland?

Thanks

I'd pick Copper out of the 3 but you won't go wrong with any of them.....you really mean Mary Jane not Winter Park because there is nothing and I mean nothing worth skiing at Winter Park.

That's cause you don't know the secret stashes .

That's so harsh.  I spend more than half my time at MJ but on the Park side Rhetta's, Outrigger, Bradley's, Balch, Brian's are really good bump runs.  The severe double fall line on the left side of Outrigger is great fun to play with.  Over on Vasquez Ridge, Gambler and Aces and Eights are really nice lower angle bump runs.  Parsenn and Backside Parsenn still have lots of good tree lines even if they're not what they used to be.  The Cirque has lots of good short steep lines.  Tons of good trees on the Park side too.  All very worth skiing IMHO.

What about Outhouse, Over Underwear, and Engledive? 

 

Outrigger can be fun but not at 8:00 AM on a stiff race snowboard.....there were no snowboard clinics so a few of us decided to crash Bob Ski.

Guess I think of Outhose as Jane side.

The Winter Park mogul team trains on Balch and Bradley's - both on the Winter Park side.  And yes, Outhouse is not actually part of Jane.

To reply to the OP's question:

 

given how warm it's been and how late in the season he/she is going, wouldn't you think Loveland out of those 3 choices? More likely to find winter-like snow in April at Loveland .

Buy 10 gal's gas at Phillups 66 in Summit area and many other

CO 66's & get 2 for 1 vouchers.

 

Good at Winter Park, Copper, Monarch, Powderhorn.

 

(some weekend days blacked out & Most of March blacked out.)

 

Rumor is Wendys has 2 for 1 coupons for Copper.  I'm currently

on slopes but only skiing Vail owned areas & A-basin due to my

Epic Pass.
