    This thread long ago became the "anything to do with Colorado, with an occasional focus on the weather" thread.

    What would you choose between:
    Loveland
    Epic (Local, Summit County Value, or just Keystone and Abasin)
    RMSP
    ?????

    What passes are you guys skiing this year?
    Both RMSP and Epic Local have benefits but I prefer Epic local for 3 important reasons.

    ABasin
    The high alpine at Breck
    Beaver Creek.



    Everything else is pretty meh but in my opinion those 3 things are way better than anything on the RMSP

    I would agree that those are the big sellers (some might add Vail).

    For me, the RMSP benefits are
    trees at MJ, along with much lower hassle there (free parking, much less traffic, etc)
    Options for travel further afield (Crested Butte, Steamboat)
    A Summit County option and a non-I-70 option (Copper and Eldo)

    But honestly, I buy the RMSP+ every year and mostly just ski WP/MJ.

    What he said.

    I love Copper and CB though. But WP and Steamboat never did it for me.

    They're all great hills, a few may be amazing in some eyes (CB & Steamboat in mine), no correct answer.
    I wouldn't be kicking and screaming if I ended up at any of 'em.
    I sure would like Beaver Creek & Vail more if they weren't 100 miles away, on a demolition derby highway, full of jabronis and a parking shitshow.
    Pretty settled in my RMSP & Silverton / Utah trip ways

    But we do need to keep up with the charade that MJ is nothing but bumps.

    In keeping with this standard, just wanted to share the story of a dog that ran off with another pup from it's house near the Mt. Bross trailhead and failed to return. That was 6 weeks ago on August 11th. Yesterday, some hikers heard a dog crying and wimpering down off the steep, north side of Bross, but couldn't locate it. Today, some people went back, found the dog and brought it down. It was found on a large rock in a cliffed-out section and they speculate it had been there for the entire time. Poor pup was in pretty rough shape, but doing okay from what I heard.

    Obviously you're not a golfer.

    Or a tree skier.

    There be bumps in the trees too!
    They don't bother me, even as a single planker. I'm used to them now.
    I'd be fine with a little more grooming at MJ. Be nice to rip a few of those runs on fresh corduroy once in a while.
    Anyway, yeah, a little get together be sweet!

    I'm a terrain skier. I prefer steep, rocky, littered with trees.

    I'll get into golf when I'm old.

    Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.

    Come to MJ sometime, let someone show you around. You may find more steep, rocky, littered with trees than you realized was there. It will truly be treed, not just a tree here or there, but MJ has a metric shitton of it. Of course, with that kind of tree cover, the pitch is not as steep as something without the trees, but still steep.

    I've probably skied there 40 days over 20 years. I've found some stashes. Knew some patroller a while back and they would take us out. I like it better than Steamboat for sure.

    These are all good reasons.

    I've actually been tempted the past couple of seasons to get the RMSP+, just to switch up the terrain that I am skiing. I like Spaulding bowl at copper a lot and I think having winter park would be nice to spend less time on I70
