Signed up for Powderhorn’s Learn to Ride Series

Last week I called Powderhorn Resort and signed up for their Learn to Ride Series which is 3 days of lessons which includes the lift and rentals. After completing the three sessions, you then get a season pass for the rest of the year. It looks like a really good deal for a first time skier.

I figure since I live in Colorado, I should try skiing to see if I like it 🙂 I’m really looking forward to it.

I’ll be hitting the slopes for the first time on January 1-3, 2010. A good way to start the year. I’m working on getting in better shape over the next month, so I’m not too sore after three intensive days!

    Good for you, I have lived in Colorado all of my life and tried skiing once in High School (1977) and haven’t tried again.
    Wow I just was glancing at your twitter update column, I am also Alpine Paradise and yes I have just started working for Dave of Dave’s Mt Tours as a Snowmobile guide in Telluride. I have worked for Dave during the summer as a 4×4 guide for many years in the San Juans but am now trying the winter gig. He has this one sled called a Phaser made by Yamaha that when you peg it lifts the skis about 6 inches off the ground. My upper body is sore from just hanging on.
    Dave has a awesome spot to go sledding so let me know if you want to give it a try.
    I was also going to recommend a new restaurant opening up at Powderhorn this year called The Skiers Union, I personally guarantee you will have the best Burger of you life, or try one of there Philly Cheese Steaks.
    Like your blog will put this on my Favs list.

    Thanks for the reply Clay. Sounds like the snowmobile guide might be a good winter gig for you.

    I’m definitely interested in going sledding sometime this winter…..I was originally looking to buy a used sled this winter, but have decided to put that off for now while I save up for some other stuff.

    When I head up to Powderhorn, I’ll grab a burger from the new restaurant. I love a good burger 🙂
