We skied May 30 until June 4th, it was amazing, there is still a ton of snow up at elevation.
This is a great place to meet extremely nice people, ski great terrain, the mountain food is excellent and very reasonable. A-Basin is not a glitzy, high fashion resort, but a relaxed ski area for everyone. I wish we were able to ski more of the place, but some lifts were closed, I don't...” --binobear
“Expert skiing joy; Downhill pitch, Bumps, Chutes & Glade. ” --DonDenver
Winter Park has lots of terrain to offer, from open green groomers to gnarly avalanche-prone chutes. The snow is very dry. There is ample tree-skiing to be had; the possibilities are endless. However, one should be prepared to ski alot of bumps (especially if they go over to the "Mary Jane trail complex").
Most of its lifts are high-speed detachables, allowing...” --Vitamin Ski
My favorite resort in America, and for good reason.
First, let's get the bad out of the way. If you want to be Joe Gnar and your ski experience isn't complete without throwing flips off 30 footers, go to Crested Butte or Taos. If you want fast paced nightlife, go to Tahoe. If you want a 80 foot jumps, go to Keystone or Breck. That's not what they're trying to promote or sell, so...” --COBillsFan
Although the lift ticket is $92, I still give this place 5 star value because their slowest lift is a high speed quad I think (didn't see anything slow at all), and it just seems like you are skiing all day long. I've skied quite a few places around the west and this is by far the best. Best skiing, lodging, parking, best at crowd control...etc. I say crowds, maybe? because...” --guroo270
It's not ritzy, there's no village, no express chairs: it's a mountain for skiing, pure and simple. Do a little hiking on the Ridge and get fresh turns over and over and over again. It's close enough where you can ski the powder in the morning and be back in time for work/class in the afternoon. Much of the terrain is above tree-line and you can ride Chair 9 to 12,700 feet and hike to the...” --dietfig
“We really loved our recent trip to Breck. After doing plenty of research and speaking to friends we got a Ski in/out 3 bedroom apartment right next to the Snowflake lift, we couldn't find anything that came close in terms of facilities, location and price range at Beaver Creek, Vail, etc. Although windy for 3 out of 8 days skiing, it only made it unpleasant for the last stretch at...” --fstopnz
“I would give 0 stars if it were possible. I have never been so furious at a ski instructor or the way a ski school is run in my entire life. My son needed to use the bathroom during his lesson and was DENIED and ended up soiling his pants. Not only that, the ski resort has the audacity to call me the day after and reprimand me for being angry and reporting the ski instructor. If you do decide...” --meleemeum
My review is based on comparisons with many other resorts (including Taos and Santa Fe in my home state of NM, Ajax, Crested Butte, Purgatory, and Monarch in Colorado, Alyeska in AK, Snow Bowl in AZ, and Alta, Snowbird, and Deer Valley in UT).
Every resort has something to offer skiers, depending on his or her skiing interest and passion. What WC has, above all, is glorious snow...” --OlderThanDirt
“I skied at Telluride in 2006 and since then I have been dying to go back. It the most perfect skiing location I can imagine. I skied Telluride the last week it was open in the sping, and the snow was still light and ideal. The runs are long, steep, picturesque and fun. I can't say enough good things about that mountain. Skiing down the face, looking down on the town and across the valley at the...” --andiforker
