First time Skiing

Postby zoriloco » Wed Mar 23, 2011 11:08 am

I was thinking of taking my wife skiing for the 1st time this friday for her birthday. But I dont really want to break the bank on a one day thing. Does anyone know of any good one day deals for skiing this weekend?

Lessons plus a day lift would be a good option too.

Only a 1200 ft. vertical, but you don't need much if your wife has never been skiing.

2 hour group lesson, equipment rental and beginner lift ticket: $50.00

Package: 2 hour lesson, equipmet rental and full Mountain Lift Ticket $75.00

Cooper is a solid recomendation.

If you want to avoid I-70 traffic, hit Eldora outside Nederland. Basically the same mountain, better views of IPW, closer, no traffic, crowds, similar price.

I know Shell was doing a deal where if you buy 10 gallons of gas they would give you a 2 for 1 coupon good at Copper, Winter Park, Loveland, Monarch and maybe Steamboat.

I realize its her birthday and you probably want to ski together but she should take a lesson regardless of where you go. Otherwise, she won't know what the heck she's doing and may not like the experience. If you ski on Friday, I-70 shouldn't be an issue.

Ski Cooper is a great suggestion. That's where my family and I all learned. And yes, she should take a lesson (and not from you, assuming you value your relationship. :))
