CELLAR DWELLERS FUTURE EVENTS                                                                                                  
Please consider hosting this fun evening. 

Cellar Dwellers is one of the most enjoyable events in our neighborhood.  It is an evening of wine-tasting, good food, and fun conversation.  The host typically provides appetizers for the guests, and will choose the wine category for the guests to bring.  Sometimes, the host provides the drinks and the guests bring the appetizers.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.   Please contact Jane Nero at, if you would like to host an upcoming Cellar Dwellers.  Pick a month that works with your schedule, and let’s get the calendar filled up!

CHERRY CREEK EAST SINGLES – October 19 – 6:00 pm
CCE Singles are cordially invited to Judith’s home on Friday, October 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  Please RSVP as soon as you can, as space is limited to 25 participants.  If you can join our fun group, please bring either a bottle of wine (or your drink of choice) or an appetizer to share.  Let Judith know which you will be bringing so that we don’t end up with all of one item.  Please email Judith at for her address and any questions.

If you love to watch movies, this is a great way to watch movies you may never have heard of before.  We have a great discussion and pass along other movie recommendations.  Flick Flack members get together quarterly to discuss a movie that we watch independently before the meeting.  The host picks the movie in advance and provides the beverages and light snack.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.  Movie options can include movies currently in the theater or movies that can be downloaded and watched at home.  New members are always welcome.  Please contact Jane Nero at if you are interested in joining. 

The ski pass industry has split into two camps following the introduction of Aspen-Alterra Mountain’s IKON Pass and Vail’s EPIC Pass.  In informal discussions with CCEA members, many of us have purchased the IKON Pass or are considering purchasing it.  If you are interested, the Ikon Pass can be purchased at    

We would like to determine:
   If the CCEA residents that ski at Copper Mountain, Winter Park and/or Eldora are interested in:
      Carpooling, or

      Meeting up at the ski area to ski together.​​

   Determine if there is an interest in coordinating ski trips to some of the iconic ski areas the Rocky Mountains has to offer. 

Ski resorts to consider include Steamboat, Taos, and Jackson Hole.  Another option could be a Utah trip that could include Alta, Snowbird, Brighton or Solitude.  All of these areas are accessible by car in less than a one day’s full drive.

If you have interest in a CCEA IKON Ski Group, please send an email to Please include your response to the above two questions.  Only IKON Pass holders, please.  If we have enough interest, we will go forward with a CCEA IKON Ski Group.
