REVIEW of the winter trip to ski resorts in Colorado during January, 2015.
UPDATE: Paul Johnson planned a ski trip to Breckenridge, Colorado the week before Martin Luther King Holiday. Bob Weber joined him for some skiing photos and video. Paul had another trip planned for Breckenridge late in February. If you want to link up with the 69 Wildcats who like to ski or snowboard, contact Bob at wildcat1969 (at) verizon.net or Paul at pjohnson (at) cpja.com at pjohnson (at) cpja.com
Breckenridge is one the ski areas closest to Denver. It is a huge winter resort in an old mining town. It has wonderful terrain and usually has plenty of snow for great conditions. Click HERE to learn more about the area.
Bob went skiing with his brother, Jeff and his family, over the MLK weekend at Beaver Creek, Colorado, which is a very popular winter resort. It is located between Vail and Aspen. It hosts a World Cup Downhill race annually and has superb grooming.
Here is a video clip from the two ski trips combined into one:
See if you find Paul Johnson in that clip, . . . . .
If not, then here is a more detailed video clip of Paul skiing at Breckenridge:
The PROPOSAL presented below is based upon several ski trips by Northwestern grads over the years. We know the rockies are a great place for good snow. The facilities are more than adequate and most importantly, attendees can have a great time.
Here is a link to the Beaver Creek site. On the main page, they have a links to all kinds of winter activities (or summer if you visit their site then). The concept is to meet up and ski or snowboard. There is NO Deadline because anyone going has to make their own reservations. We can go to another hotel, or if not enough people sign up, we could still have a smaller gathering at a restaurant. We can also meet at someone's house or condo if they don't mind hosting a party.
It all depends upon the numbers and your feedback to determine the interest.Here are some of the challenges in scheduling anything at Beaver Creek: ($$$$$$$) Please notice that if Beaver Creek is too pricey for your budget, we have an alternate site at Brian Head, Utah.
That is on our schedule for the entire months of January, February and March because that is where a certain Wildcat (last name: Weber) has a season pass.
ANY type of skiing or snowboarding will cost money. $50.00 per person is probably the minimum possible for just the lift ticket itself. Transportation, hotel rooms, other meals or items like renting equipment would obviously cost more. There is NO deadline, because we doubt enough people will show up. So far, it is just a SUGGESTION to come out and enjoy some winter recreation. Some wildcats will be there anyway, so you are certainly welcome to join in.
The whole point of this web site is to determine what kind of interest there might be for such events.This is where it all comes down to YOU. - Nothing, . . and we mean nothing, can happen unless we get some feedback.
If Breckenridge, Beaver Creek or Brian Head have no appeal for you, then fine. . . Ignore this page and look for another event you might attend.
