Looks like the airlines out of New York were pretty pleased with the impact of that $127 Philly to Denver deal and decided to expand it to NY/NJ (albeit $20 more expensive).
Direct flights to Denver are going to run you $250 easy during the winter. At $147 this flight gets you there for 40% less.
I almost jumped in the car last week and went the extra mile to dive on the Last Minute $127 RT Philly to Denver Deal. Glad I waited since the availability / date selection is way better on this one.
That said, end of the Ski season is coming up quick. One day soon the only snow deals we post are going to be to South America and New Zealand (I am so getting back to Portillo, Chile, this year). Get on it.
Ski and Snowboard
You guys know the drill. Great mountains, tons of snow this year, and killer spring dates still available. Thank god, with hits this big us east coast guys will appreciate slightly softer park conditions.
This ones worth a watch if you rock two boards through the powder instead of one:
Full movie is pretty sick but the trailer gets me stoked to jump on a plane... even though there are only some parts in Colorado.
Downhill / Longboard
Even though there isn't a ton of availability before the end of the ski season, there sure is for the late spring. Late spring outside of Denver reminds me of a bygone era and my first cross country skate trip (excuse the 2008 riding / loose trucks):
For a more up to date look at the gnarliness that is Colorado locals skating colorado hills:
The road above is Venom's upcoming Devils Peak Downhill coarse, to be held August 19th + 20th 2017). Right now the cheapest you can get there is PHL->$327 (leaving 8-15 returning 8-22) for the event so no luck yet for NY/NJ guys but I'll keep an eye on it.
Tons of good parks around Denver / Boulder area and I love how many more bowl / flow sections you Mountain West guys build to play with. This one gives some perspective:
UPDATE Feb 16 @5:06PM EST
Welp. Those went super quick. Cheapest flights (and most everything under $200) are pretty much off the table at this point. Congrats to everyone who scored one (and hopefully more!). Leaving links up just incase you want to go anyway.
