So I want to ask here instead of starting another thread. I may take a solo trip leaving next Fri and coming back on Tue to ski. Flights are cheaper to Denver than SLC so Colorado looks like it. Out of the 3 mountains that will be open will there be any place to stay that has a nightlife? I def want to spend a night in Denver but skiing is my goal.

 

Need to get out of NYC after a breakup and skiing will be good for the soul

Highlands will be open that weekend and Aspen has been known to have some nightlife.  It is off season, but Dave Mason's playing the Belly Up Friday night.

Ski Highlands Saturday/Sunday and Loveland/Abay on the way back.

A-Basin and Loveland aren't far from Breckenridge.  If you have a car you can drive right up to where the lifts are and getting around is easy in April weather.

It is pretty late in the season, but downtown Aspen is probably your best chance at some night life.  There was a plug for apre at Highlands Pizza on Opensnow so there might be something there also.  Highlands closes Sunday the 28th so you will have to drive back and do A-B or LL Monday- maybe hit Twin Peaks near Golden Monday night if you are not skiing Tuesday.

No question. On piste was prolly better than off...but it was damn good and consistent all day. A mostly sunny forecast ended up as mostly cloudy with light snow, below freezing all day even at the base. The MJ bumps are not getting much traffic after all the snow. Pretty filled in as shown in tball's pics. It wasn't Spring skiing at all today, we had a killer day.

Pano didn't run, so Parsenn is being saved for the weekend. So good to see EpicPass draw the crowds.

Agreed.  The trees were a little rugged.  North facing trees were ok.  East facing trees on the backside of the jane were brutal crud.  I wanted to visit Topher's today but after a test run in the cannonball trees I realized it was a bad idea.   Parsenn should be nice if you can get it!

I was a little surprised at the consolidated baking on the Sunnyside. Not worth it compared to North facing. But I do think early tracks tomorrow will be pretty good, relatively speaking and assuming Pano is running.

With more snow tomorrow, the close is going to be pretty damn good. The kids were pretty stoked about Lewis Sweet Shop, too smile.gif.

It appears that the individuals who were caught in that slide near Loveland have been identified.  Very sad.  Now that many resorts have closed for the season and people are starting to venture into the backcountry more, please remember to stay safe and exercise all necessary precautions.  Especially after all the snow Colorado has received in the last couple weeks.  I imagine the snowpack in some areas is extremely unstable.  Condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
