Colorado - A one-day ski resort?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.  I'm heading to Winter Park to meet some family at the end of the month.  I'll be arriving in Denver on Saturday, 2 days ahead of everyone, so I'll have Sunday to ski by myself (yes, I planned it this way!).  I'm wondering if anyone could recommend a good one-day mountain, where I can enjoy a lot of varied terrain and get a good overall feel of the resort in one day.  I'm a level 7-8 skier and would consider cat skiing if anyone recommends.....or even hire an instructor/guide to show me around a resort.

 

I appreciate any feedback you guys have...thanks!!!

I would say either Loveland or A-Basin would fit your bill. Especially A-Basin. Small enough to learn in a day, and great open bowl skiing with local vibe. Not to far out of the way from your WP destination. Just a short backtrack from Loveland Pass.

There is a cat skiing operation out of winter park now. You could do that and not have to pack and move. Powder Addiction

More than enough at WP to keep you occupied.  Why go someplace else?

Just head straight to Eagle Wind or the Cirque.  You'll soon find uncrowded steeps, trees, and chutes.  Powder Addiction on Jones Pass or just do 7 Mile on Berthoud Pass.  Loveland is good but may wear out your sea level lungs for a first day.
