don't miss this

During the first week of school in the fall you can buy Eldora season passes on campus for $90. This is not a deal to miss. There are better resorts, but Eldora is closest and by far cheapest. The backcountry is a little closer. Also 25 min to put in on the Poudre. Bring playboat, creeker, and innertube. It starts running on Friday at 8am. Peaks on Saturday. Live in Old Town if you are a college student. What program are you starting?

Yo,

I'm starting the CMB graduate program (cell and molecular biology). I'm defiently bringing some boats and my 2 snowboards. I'm stoked and ready to get on some west-coast creeks.

I'm an avid boater (sponsored creeker) and can't wait to get out west.

Too bad I don't really know anyone at all within 500 miles.

If you're in the area we'll have to hook up.

What appartments are in old town? Any links?

Thx,

Scott

Unfortunatally, Ft. Collins is far, far away from the major ski areas in Co. (a three to four hour drive on snowy weekends). I suggest checking out the Cameron Pass area. It's pure backcountry, but it's close (hour and a half on good days) and it has something for everyone. Supper Fun!

not sure about "really" close...but as already stated above, it's the closest. The "majors" are all much further from FC.

Cameron is definitely bc, so if you're headed that way, take any avy class, do some reading, get the rescue gear, find some good partners, and get an AT, tele, or split setup....or at least, don't bootpack in the skin track.

Actually, there's a ton of intriguing bc aside from Cameron up that way.

So, yeah, you'll have no problem getting good skiing...as long as you're willing to work for it...in earning turns and/or drive time.
