I've heard the Colorado gang are a bunch of jerks - not very friendly.

Plus, there's just nothing to do in Colorado, unless you like snowmobiling, horseback rides, hay rides, sleigh rides, mountain biking, dog sledding, ballooning, Colorado whitewater river rafting, kayaking, tubing, golf, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, hot sulpher springs, panning for gold, museums, alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice climbing, rock climbing or touring ghost towns. Although I have heard that there are some off-road trails if you look hard enough.
Oh and a few nice microbreweries

Where are you skiing?

That will determine whether we are jerks, snobs, granola clusters or just really cool telemarker dudes.

Right Art??

Where are you skiing?

I'm guessing Winter Park since it's near to Fraser - yes?

No snobs there, at least not the last time I visited. Now Vail on the other hand...

Oh, but I know where to find the best microbrews
35 miles from Fraser, 35 minutes from Denver (unless you're driving a D90 on 37's - then it's more): Tommy Knocker's
Best fresh root beer too

When I lived in Stowe, I went to the Shed, they had their own microbrews, down here in florida I have had my parents ship beer to me, I like Magic Hat #9 and Shed Mountain Ale.
I am looking forward to drinking microbrews in the rockies, should hit me hard with the altitude change, haha

martin-
If you end up hitting breck, beaver creek, vail, a-basin, or keystone, shoot me an email or call me at 303-710-2194. I ski 1-3 days a week at any of the above. Even so, I may tag along with Yousef ...

always great to put a face with 90 names.

Wow, relax JP Vailboy, I was just making a bad joke, I have nothing against 'you people'.
I can't quite completely understand what you typed, but it sounds like you're hitting on me.
Sorry man, you sound nice and I don't mean to offend you or your lifestyle, but I'm happily married - to a woman. No harm done though and just to show you I have no hard feelings, make sure you come have drink with us while Martin is here - I'll buy you a daiquiri.

It feels as if this could turn into a D-90 ski weekend we should all get together and shred it up!

I am all for it mike, we all need to make a decision on the hill to go to and come up with a time. I got yousef's number so the day I land (tuesday feb 3rd at 2:30 mountain time) i will give him a call.
Art will be proud, on the way up i plan on stopping at Tommy Knockers, pick up some fluids.
We should get a head count of who is in for skiing and boarding.
