There could be room in the budget and time on the schedule for an Easter Weekend family CO trip (kids are 5 and 7).
I recall April deals in the past for Winter Park, Steamboat, and A-Basin. Does anyone else put on an April deal?
My wife isn't a big skier (to put it lightly), and the kids are young, so I'm looking for a spot with good village and easy terrain. I also don't want to have to travel too far from DEN.
Breckenridge would be the number one option for the village, but I don't want to pay $100/day for April skiing.
Keystone's village would probably be nice enough too... and close enough for a trip into Breckenridge. Again though, there's the ticket cost. The other bonus is we could maybe do a day at A-Basin.
Copper might be an option too. There's also an option of giving up the slopeside for a sweet spot in Frisco along the shuttle route. From there, it'd be easy access to Breck and for the Silverthorne area shopping.
Winter Park looks good from the skiing perspective... and I'm pretty sure they have good ticket deals. The only concern would be the village... I've never been there, but from my research it doesn't look the greatest... any thoughts?
Anyhow, I have a couple of months to sell the trip to my wife... I'm just looking at my options before I make the official pitch.
