  1. Skied at Winter Park on March 15, 2019

    I was lucky enough to have a mid-day visit on Friday to Winter Park after a huge storm on Wednesday. It was a beautiful sunny day and around 1:00 PM I pulled into Winter Park’s free parking lot and was able to find an open parking spot. After walking past the Moffat Tunnel I was…

  2. Skied at Winter Park on March 9, 2019

    Our first day back on the slopes since late January with so much great snow! It’s tough to write but it’s true: for various reasons, we weren’t able to ski at all in February. It had been way too long. That said, we woke up to 8 inches of new snow overnight at Winter Park…

  3. Skied at Winter Park on January 21, 2019

    After a big storm, I had lots of fun exploring the Eagle Wind territory. I started the day a little after 9:30 AM (on a Monday) so I had the whole place to myself. It had been a very crowded weekend with, from what I heard, anywhere from 15,000-17,000 people on Saturday and Sunday. My…

  4. Skied at Winter Park on December 22, 2018

    One quick day before the holidays but the best powder so far! Since I’m only averaging 5-10 runs each time I get out, I’m trying to find ways to get creative and make sure I’m spending my time wisely. Luckily the day before Winter Park got a bunch of snow so I headed over to…

  5. Skied at Winter Park on December 15, 2018

    Day two and plenty of blue (skies)! This morning I decided to make my way over to the Vasquez Ridge Territory and see how much snow it’s received. I headed up Gemini Express again and worked my way back using Prospector Express and then skiing past Olympia to get to the territory. That’s a nice…

  6. Skied at Winter Park on December 1, 2018

    My first day back on the slopes! We decided not to ski during the early season since we were still working on getting a little one-year-old comfortable with the cold. It turns out wearing gloves is not a natural or wonderful thing to a baby. Since the gondola at Winter Park’s base is not yet…

  7. Skied at Winter Park on February 1, 2018

    Another snowy weekday in Winter Park! Both Rachel and I decided to pause work and take some afternoon laps. We packed up the kiddo and headed to Winter Park after lunch on Thursday and had a fluffy afternoon all to ourselves. It started snowing that morning so by waiting until later in the day we…

  8. Introducing Alterra Mountain Company and the Ikon Pass

    The newly introduced Alterra Mountain Company has announced their signature season pass for skiers and snowboarders Alterra Mountain Company introduced itself and its name to the world on January 11, 2018. Some simply think of Alterra simply as “new Intrawest” but its way more than that: its the joint venture of affiliates of KSL Capital…
