Trying to choose where to go in Colorado

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

Hope everybody is having a good season.

 

We are doing a last minute trip to CO. Our flight is tomorrow and we will be staying for a week. Haven't booked accommodations yet, so need to do that today. I was watching for that storm.

 

We wanted to go to Snowmass/Aspen, but they don't seem to be having a great season. Next was Steamboat, but it looks like they won't get be the main beneficiary of the upcoming storm system next Friday-Monday. I know it is still a few days out, but I am just going by current forecasts.

 

Arriving at Denver Tuesday night, so want to drive at most couple of hours. So, I narrowed it down to Winter Park, Copper, Vail and Beaver Creek. We have been to Breck, want to try somewhere new.

 

I am graduating out of intermediate, wife is lower intermediate and have a 5 yr old who started last year and skied 15 days (was skiing easy blues at Breck at the end of season -- need ski school for her). Would prefer not to drive to the mountain every day, so need to stay at the mountain.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Copper!!!

Copper., Breck, BC and my favorite-Vail all have plenty of terrain that will fit your skiing levels.

Being and advanced intermediate myself, for my one day in CO this year I skied Copper with my Dad and would highly recommend it.

 

Personally I like to explore, and if you stay in Dillon/Silverthorne you have the pick of the litter for Summit County & Vail/Beaver Creek.

Just got back from Copper, snow is really good, great mt layout with trails and lifts for each ability segregated somewhat. There is on slope lodging but availability might be tough to get.

I didn't look at anyone else's snowfall for this storm, but Breck has 13" as of just now and is skiing really well. I see that you have done Breck and want something new, but to many here snow trumps all, so that might be the trend of the replies. I recommend looking at the conditions right now at all of the I-70 areas. I echo the Dillon/Silverthorne/Frisco lodging location recommendation.
