Trip Planning for 2009-2010 Ski Season

I just confirmed my reservations for Pagosa Springs for Nov 23-28 and for Eagle for Dec 19-27. I am buying an Epic Pass for me, Jake and Jarrett and will use the half price tix for Jackson at Beaver Creek, Vail, Keystone, Breck, and A-Basin. Here is the plan--ski those five VRI resorts plus Durango and Wolf Creek before January 1, 2010.

Jackson has only skied Sunrise, AZ, and Brian Head, UT, so this will be an awesome trip for him. Jarrett has only skied Brian Head.

I am looking forward to hiking Alberta Peak and the back bowls at Vail most of all.

Is it Thanksgiving yet?

Nice trip. Vail's Bowls are huge, fun, and unlike anything most resorts have to offer. The sheer scale is what I remember most. Don't forget to be amazed at A-Basin either. Terrain is king, with lots of hidden little spaces to explore--totally unlike Vail in regards to eating, retail, and parking. A ski "area" as opposed to a "resort", take your pick as to which you prefer. But, in the end, it all comes down to the mountain. Have a fun and safe trip.
