Which ones? My back up pair is a set of Vandals on attack bindings.

Keystone or Breck didn’t open any new terrain today

Hopefully they are saving it for tomorrow. It looks like another little storm is coming later in the week. Keep ‘em coming!!

Booked a week at Copper Mountain, Colorado for the end of January. First time skiing. Any pointers, advice, recs? For example is a full ski suit necessary or ski overalls fine?

Then I’ll never be a true Texan because I’m not a dumb driver, and I spent the first 25 years of my life in South Louisiana.

Overall the day was a success. I think there were 13 runs open total. Which was great from 8:45 until about 11. After 11 it became a bit of a shite show with how many people (and kids) were on those runs. I shut it down at 12.

re: 2020-2021 ski thread
Copper is a great mountain.

I haven’t skied in a bib since I was a kid but they seem to be somewhat popular. Full ski suits are for novelty purposes or high fashion.

Don’t overthink it. Most days I’m fine with a t-shirt, 1/4 zip mid layer, and a middle of the road shell jacket and light insulated ski pants. For really cold days like you are likely to have in January I’ll add thermals and a puffer. I’d rather be a little cold than a little too bulky, but you may feel differently. Keep your hands, feet, and face warm, and you will be fine.

Ugh, San Miguel Country back to red. Does anyone know how long counties typically stay at the “red” stage? Any way to guesstimate? Wife and kids probably won’t go if it stays red.

We got a phone call today saying that Snowmass isn’t doing group lessons until Dec 18th.

There’s absolutely zero sign of this slowing down, so I wouldn’t anticipate a region that just went to red to crawl out of it soon.

What are the plans? Can’t cook and relax at the rental with the wife and kids? Serious question.

We have long weekend trips planned but we’re not canceling anything. At this point we’re just planning to ski and load the condo with great food and drinks. Breakfast and dinners planned for the condo. Sandwiches and beers at the top of the mountain for lunch.

Really thinking about scratching our Mardi Gras Keystone plans. I don’t want the village to be a ghost town. I also want my son and wife to have the full experience

Y’all can still have a great time, and that’s almost 3 months away. Hopefully, restrictions will loosen by then.

We may just truncate our trip. Was going for quite some time. And my wife does not ski and my youngest is not quite ready for the mountain (1...). And my wife is pregnant. Maybe just a bad year for a trip.

Yeah, as long as it is refundable I would let things play out until at least after New Years.

It sounds like you need this trip more than any other year. Been a tough one for all of us, but just getting away for a week and breaking up what is currently the norm is worth the trip itself.

I've never been warmer than when I wore these pants. I wore them in Canada on a 5 degree morning with only boxers underneath (I used to think I needed thermals...not with these).

Get you some pants and a warm jacket. It doesn't have to be huge. You'll be ready to go for $125 max.

I’ll second these pants. I bought them because they were cheap and if I got a couple of uses out of them I’d be happy. I wore thermals with them the first time and that was a mistake. If I lived somewhere that I could ski several times a year I might shell out more money, but these are more than adequate.

Yes, I definitely do need the trip. Unfortunately, I am a selfish skier and I do not if this is the year for me to be my typical, selfish skier self. I had a couple tours scheduled, and normally ski with myself / others, and my wife kind of indulges my hobby. Would feel pretty awful if she is cooped up inside. Trying to rally a friend or two to join the trip...

Going on my honeymoon as a first time skier. Do we need helmets? I'm going through an equipment delivery and pickup service called Ski Butler.

As somebody who didn't get a helmet their first time skiing, and proceeded to get a minor concussion after falling on an ice-patch: Yes
