    Winter park enduro race next weekend, need advice.

    So I was on the amateur waiting list to do next weekends race and am now registered. I have only done one enduro race here have only been to trestle once so I'm still a rookie when it comes to the resorts.
    My questions are what are the best ways to stay there for the three nights and it be still affordable. Are there groups staying in lodges or places where you can split costs? Also any other riders going earlier in the week to ride the courses? Any info on this would be appreciated, plus ill most likely be coming up alone.
    Thanks,

    Jimmy

    The Vintage is reasonable, ask about packages or deals with lift tickets.

    #1. Good luck! The Amateurs that win it are really fast XC guys that have some pretty good handling skills. Watch out for the last stage. It may be downhill, but you'll be pedaling EVERYWHERE!

    #2. Vintage will be good. Its somewhat of a dive, but great place to sleep, soak, and close to the resort.

    #3. What Skared said. but add: Pedal everywhere.

    Another vote for Vintage. I stayed there last year during the festival and loved it. I got a killer deal on a room, but would gladly have paid more money. It was quiet, a short walk/ride to the resort, and the hot tub was an awesome way to relax after a day of riding. I'll be in WP for the festival again this year and am disappointed I wont be staying at the Vintage again. A buddy of mine has a condo in Fraser, hard to pass that up!
