Where to BC ski near Boulder?

Help out there. Got sick of overpriced season passes, long lift lines AND I-70 traffic. What are a few good places to hike and ski near Boulder?

Thanks,

Overpriced season passes? Are you kidding me?

The traffic I can understand, the lift lines too if you are at the wrong resort, but the passes? I'm pretty sure Colorado has the cheapest season passes anywhere.

They are certainly cheaper than an avy 1 course and some BC equipment (avy, skins, AT, dynafit, splitboard) BC is freaking expensive considering you have to walk you butt up the hill. There’s nothing out here you can car shuttle.

Seeing as you don't know where to go. You probably should take an Avalanche Safety course. Add the cost of an AT set-up, beacon, probe, shovel, backpack. This is going to run you about the same as a seasons pass. Which by the way is relatively cheap in these parts. When I use to ride Squaw, people were lined up to drop $1000 on a pass. Now, the passes are wicked cheap at $500.

If skiing around Boulder CO foothills and motns, beware of mine shafts. Many of the good looking slopes on a topographic map out of bounds near Eldora are riddled with mine adits.

Juan, I can not belive people here, I am sorry this thread went this way,

WHO SAID THERE IS NOTHING TO CAR SHUTTLE IN THE AREA????????????

juan, there is tons of shit to ski out of boulder. I will put some stuff together and send it to you in a PM.

quickest turns are up by eldora, carribou, hywy 72 and 36 the lakes, and just outside ward and ned.

Dave, this guy is awesome, you should take him skiing.

juan, I will show you RMNP, and if you want to drive further cameron and the crags.

give me a day on the PM with maps, and i'll tell you where the car shuttle is, bring snowboarders!!!!!!

Bob- I didn't mean to come off as a dick. My point was concidering the price of getting into the BC a season pass isn't that bad and compared to the rest of the country it's damn cheap.

There's lot's of stuff you can drive close to but a true car shuttle (ie Loveland pass)? I'd love to know where that is. I understand Cameron Pass comes close but to get to the good stuff you still need AT or shoes. Some AT bindings and skins will run you close to a season pass. It is a one time buy though.

You're dead on that there's tons of good shit to ski out here. I'm far from knowing even a fraction of it......

$500 passes? That is not bad; Snowbasin is $1150; I think they were 950 preseason.
