East and west facing slopes in Colorado .

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My vision stinks in the flat light (the perils of aging). After 2 pm this time of year the east facing slopes ( like jay peak in Vermont ) are getting dim. So in the morning i like the east facing slopes and in the pm the west facing ones. Ideally, I would have a large collection of south facing bowls so I could move across the face as the sun moves.

Is there such a place in Colorado?
Or better yet, has anyone categorized ski mountains as to what direction they face?

I guess I have to spend some time w google maps

Vail and Cooper both have South facing bowls; the Back Bowls and Copper Bowl (Blackjack and Mountain Chief Lifts) respectively. The plus side is they have good light later in the day. The downside is they usually get heated by the sun and a bit firm.
