Well, I recommend it because it is much less crowded than any of Summit (400,000 skier visits for LL vs. 1.5+ million for Breck). Most of the ski area is above timberline. The entire giant cirque above the tunnel is inbounds and skiable, with a wide variety of aspects. It has some of the best beginner (!!!) and intermediate bowl terrain anywhere, and has some pretty good expert stuff on Chair 1 and the ridge chair.
I love this place on a powder day because there is so much bowl to ski and it is very easy to get away from other skiers into untracked stuff.
Arapahoe Basin and Loveland have the highest bases within the day ski area of Denver. To put things in perspective, the summit of Steamboat is lower than the base of Loveland. The summit of Vail is 11,600, The base of Loveland is 10,800.
Because they have the Denver skier base to draw from, both LL and Arapahoe are generally the first to open and last to close in Colorado (Arapahoe stays open longer).
All of the different Loveland aspects make for great spring Corn harvest skiing. Lots of South Facing on Chair 8 to start the day, then work over to chair 4, then 2, then 6, then close off with 1 if you are still chasing the sun.
Even if it is deep into Spring and other places are doing full-on melt, Loveland and Arapahoe will retail some of the last packed powder/chalk snow that exists because of the altitude.
Lots of people gripe about Loveland because of the perception that is is cold, windy and visibility sucks during storms. I think it is an awesome place even when it is howling (at least until chairs start closing) but Spring is lots and lots and lots of fun there.
