Epic Adventure! Eight Colorado Resorts In A Day
Sporting an Epic Pass, a Copper/Winter Park Patriots Pass and a Loveland lift ticket, Disabled American Veteran Jerry Eller of Canon City, Colorado recently conquered an eight-resort solo adventure.
“I started at Winter Park, then Loveland, A-Basin, Keystone, Copper, Vail, Beaver Creek and then Breck,” Eller said. “I had to change my boots, drive myself and hike from the car but I still had 1/2 hour to spare at Breck.”
The idea of skiing eight resorts in one day came to Eller, a native Coloradoan, on a recent trip to California after skiing four areas in one afternoon, including Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, Vail and Beaver Creek. After skiing pretty much every ski area in Colorado, except Aspen/Snowmass, he says he may shoot for 10 resorts in one day next time.
“I know if I had a driver and quicker skier access I could squeeze in Ski Cooper and … others next time!” Eller added. Maybe even his home ski area – Monarch Mountain!
Eller documented his adventure with photographs at each resort. “I brought a little sign and took a picture of me on the lift and a picture of the lift ops holding the sign at the top of the lift at each resort.”
Eller was able to make one run at every resort, except for Breckenridge, where he was able to squeeze in three runs.
