  • The Latest Trend in Skiing Is Renting Out the Entire Mountain

    "“Fresh powder is one of the rarest ­commodities in the world,” says Aaron Brill, co-owner of Silverton Mountain. There’s a reason you’ve never heard of the resort. The private ski club in southeastern Colorado limits access to 80 guests a day—unless someone buys out the mountain. First tracks after lunchtime? It’s an advantage that no name-brand resort can provide: not Aspen, not Vail, not St. Moritz."

        My long-term financial planning includes dispensation for staying fit enough to hike to fresh powder, saving my dollars for other purposes (like new powder skis).

            Second!

            Now, what I want to see is someone rent out a small hall and have their favorite band/performer play just for them and a group of friends.  If anyone wants to do this I vote for Frank Turner as the artist.

              Why limit yourself to just one mountain of fresh tracks when you can have every run on a different mountain for less than $1000 a day? Seems silly.

              Skiing at a resort is like climbing in a gym. It's good practice, but it's not the real thing.

                I’m willing for you to pay for us to ski on multiple mountains. Let it not be said that we are inflexible
