Lessons: A-Basin or Loveland?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am going to get my kids a couple days of lessons this year.  They did like the lesson they had last year at A-Basin.  This year we will be there for a week, so, A-Basin and also be at Loveland for a couple days at least.  They are both solid level 5.  The lessons are mainly for them to get some exposure to the tougher stuff we only see out west, steeper, bumpier, treeier, etc.  Not looking for a lesson on groomers.  A small group lesson due to cost is what is in the cards.

 

Would either place be a better choice?  Better instructors?  Better reputation?  Of just roll the dice.

Loveland might be better for easing them into the tougher stuff.  It has some very nice 'upper intermediate' bumps in Nix Nox, Upper Richards, and Scrub and some nicely spaced not-so-steep trees, and some conservative powder shots that can be found most days.  Then, if they want, the kids can build up to the Loveland terrain that's as radical as it gets.

 

I think A-basin seems to have a bigger gap between ho-hum blues and the really serious stuff.
