I have been to Winter Park many times. I would have no problem guiding them to the proper runs for their abilities. This is my first trip to Steamboat. I'm interested in how the difficulty of the slopes compare. The review of Steamboat here on Epicski says that Steamboat blues would be blacks at many other resorts. Does that include Winter Park or is that author comparing Steamboat to resorts in other parts of the country? If you've skied both resorts, what runs at Steamboat would compare to the greens under High-Lonesome lift at WP and Edelweiss or Columbine for blues? Where should I take the kids for starting out?
Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks for helping.
