Re: Ski plans for next season?

Teaching at Platty, teaching at various mountains across New England, and doing a thing at Breckenridge in April.

Probably gonna skip out on Max Pass/Epic Pass this year and rely on comps, discounts, maybe a Mad Card, and a couple of Fox 44 cards.

Planning on asking my manager if I can spend a month out west working remote part of it, and using vacation for part of it. He's been my manager for about three months. We'll see how it goes.

Got an Ikon pass this year so planning to head where I can use that. If i can't get a month out west I'll take two weeks - my daughters have back to back spring breaks so I'll have one come out then the other. Not sure which destinations I'll choose yet - probably JH and Utah if I only get two weeks. If I can get a full month I'll add Colorado in there.

First year in a long time without a local season pass so it will be an interesting year - more skiing in VT, more local variety however i can scrape it together. More Plattekill.
Are the spring breaks in early or late March, or April?

I'm ending up at Alta for closing week because my friend's kids in middle school have spring break the week after Easter, April 13-17.  Last year the kids will be in the same school and free at Alta Lodge during late season.  I'd rather ski Alta in early April, but I have enough other plans so will meet up with them again.  Advantage is spring season rates.

Spring break is pretty much the whole month of March in Colorado.

One state I don't travel to very much for assorted reasons.  Maybe one year I'll get an Epic pass and go exploring in CO.  Have skied a few days at Aspen/Snowmass in recent years but not any of the resorts off I-70.

Heard that Texans invade Taos the first two weeks of March.  I suppose some of them make the drive to Colorado too.

My daughter had 2-week spring breaks in March the last six years.  Starting college so will be just one week in early March for the next four years.  So my thinking about March ski trips is shifting.

All of March and the first two weeks of April are spring break weeks in every vacation destination. Different regions across the US do spring break during different weeks. It’s a great time to make a bunch of money really fast if you work in the industry.

I’m hoping to ski at copper and Loveland in February but I really struggle with booking ski trips in advance, I’ve always been more of a storm chasing couch surfer so doing a family ski thing is still pretty new to me. I keep telling myself that it will be fun no matter what but if the skiing really sucks I’d be disappointed for sure.

Two years ago we timed our Durango trip with a storm but found lodging last minute, I also have friends there that have extra rooms but in summit the good deals and open rooms get booked up for February and last minute stuff doesnt really work.

Re: Ski plans for next season?

After a total knee replacement in May and a reconstructed wrist in July. My hope is an Orda  pass and  a very cafefull start to my ski season around Thanksgiving.If all goes well a trip out west late season to ski and visit with relatives living the dream there.
  Another goal is for my son to try tele skiing on demo day. He has been wanting to try it out since we have been frequent Gore.
Want to spend special time with your children, teach them to ski or snowboard. The reward will be endless!

Same as last year, probably the same as next.  Ski Kitzbuhel for about 4 days and then drive to Wengen.  Ski there 3 days.  Maybe one day it will materialize.
