  • 2020/21 meet ups

    Any of those that normally plan these event taking on the challenge this year?
    I was wonder on when reservations for the resorts and hotels can start to be watched ?
    Or maybe even some dates on when and if they can be done?

    As far as I've seen, Skiboard Connection in early February is the only confirmed event so far this year. We haven't started planning for Midwest Meet at Mount Bohemia yet. The typical Westfest / Utah crew won't be able to make it out this year. That said, if anyone will be able to make it and wants to the organize event, please feel free!

        Correct - this event will be solely at Epic resorts with individual resorts scheduled out by day (details are on Facebook and we'll be sure to add a thread here in the future as well). We'll be using the reservation system that has been put in place to submit our priority reservations tied to our Epic passes for this event. I'm not sure how the 4-day Epic passes work, but I'd imagine that would be a valid option for folks only planning to ride Epic resorts for this event.

        With so much uncertainty and covid numbers spiking again, the Epic resorts are the safest bet for most of us. With a variety of Epic resorts in a small area in Colorado, this event offers us some nice variety paired with some certainty that we'll actually be able to ride.

        Westfest thrived on finding great deals early in the fall. Many of the Cottonwoods haven't figured out how they're going to manage crowd sizes and prioritize mountain access, so there's just too much up in the air to be able to feel good about making any reservations. For folks who live closer or have access to the Cottonwood resorts through the Ikon pass, this event may be realistic, that scenario just didn't describe most of us. Hopefully we'll be able to get back toward normal in the 2022 season. Utah will certainly be missed.

            Correct ,
            We Shredfest organizers are taking a pass on getting an event going for this coming season because of the uncertainty related to Covid , the resort access restrictions, and restrictions on indoor dining etc.
            Hope to see everyone again for the 2021/2022 season!

              Well ok , at least we spectators or patrons of these events have a little bit of a clue.
              Now it’s time to find out if some that always go, will find a way and make some other plans and possibly still go? It’s always fun meeting up and getting out with others that you don’t normally ski with

                I always thought it it would be cool to have all of our festivals based around the resorts that have a communal pass, like Epic. That way someone could go to Shredfest, Westfest and Colorado all on one pass. Now that multi resort passes are dominating the ski scene, it gets expensive to mix up the resorts. Not to mention making the organizing easier. Maybe one day.
                Just these, nothing else !

                  That’s what I liked too. One year I bought the epic and went to Colorado and Shredfest was in the southern region that year so it worked out. I didn’t get the epic the following year thinking that they were gonna be doing the Ikon ones like Squaw and Alpine , they fooled me though.
                  As it looks though the epic pass is where most of the gatherings are. So it’s well worth it’s price if you want to travel and meet up
