Wednesday January 3 - Saturday January 6 (3 nights)

Colorado hosts endless skiing and snowboarding options throughout the Rocky Mountains. With tons of sunshine and decent snowfall matched with steady temperatures, it’s no wonder they call this state: “Ski Country, USA.” There are five resorts in a concentrated area owned by Vail Resorts, with base altitudes varying between 2425m - 3285m (far higher than the peak of Whistler). So odds are solid for a wonderful vacation, touring world-class resorts in the early days of the New Year!


Meeting in Denver and staying in an Airbnb in the Vail area, we will explore free Epic Pass skiing at the following resorts: Vail (of course), Beaver Creek and Arapahoe Basin. Based in Colorado’s front mountain range (close to Denver), Vail and Beaver Creek offer world class skiing and snowboarding along with luxurious lodging, dining and nightlife in their base villages, while Arapahoe Basin offers a classic, local’s vibe. Top-rate snowmaking capacity ensures that this trip is a go! Moreover, all five Epic Pass Colorado resorts are in close proximity (1h 15m) to one another, so we can adjust plans according to local conditions.

I will be driving my own SUV from BC and will pick up and return folks to Denver International on the condition that flights are scheduled to arrive in Denver around 6:00 pm +/- one hour on Wednesday night. There's also the option to purchase a one-way ticket to Denver and join me on the long drive home! Otherwise, please schedule return flights for Saturday evening leaving Denver around 6:00 pm, unless planning to stay longer in Colorado.

Please note that the trip cost will cover shared accommodations and shared local transport for the 3 days. It does not include airfare, parking, meals, health insurance or lift tickets. A valid passport and ability to travel to the USA is required for this trip. No refunds will be issued due to any problems crossing the border.

A signed waiver will be required for all participants.
