New here and would greatly appreciate help from more experienced people. My son and I found some cheap tickets to Denver and are looking for some place that's a good fit for us I ski he rides. We both are advanced for the Midwest I know it’s not the same as advanced in the west but we ski/ride aggressively mostly black diamond runs anywhere we go in Michigan with all our 300 to 500 ft of vertical. I guess what I’m saying is we like steep runs but will not go off piste at all and we both are in good physical condition for what ever that’s worth. We land in Denver Wednesday at 7:15 PM and leave Sunday at 7:05 PM and would like to ski/ride Thursday, Friday, Saturday and maybe half a day Sunday since we have a later flight back. I will rent a car and drive either Wednesday night or early Thursday morning depending where we go. After looking at reviews here I’ve narrowed it down to Crested Butte, Steamboat or Winter park but I’m open to suggestions or any help anyone can offer. As mush as I would love ski in ski out it’s not in the budget so we will drive or take a shuttle to the resort. Also looked at Loveland Keystone area as well and found a hotel $175 per night and that includes two lift tickets to Loveland I don’t know if that a good price or not?
Our main priority since anything is an improvement is
-Within 4 hrs of Denver
I have been too Breckenridge 25 years ago but my son has not ridden outside Michigan so just about anything in Colorado is going to be a big improvement.
