Your posting topic was Keystone and A-Basin, and I notice no replies regarding those specific areas, so will respond re those. Colorado remains in a drought, and we would really be hurting now except that we got early season snow. Too, Keystone has cranked up its snow making now and is still making snow; usually this is shut down at Christmas. Keystone also is back up to its normal high standard of grooming slopes, after a difficult start earlier in the year. I ski Keystone regularly, teaching there, and have had some of the best skiing on groomed slopes I have ever had. Two of the bump runs also are in the best condition I have ever seen (12 years working there) and others are in as good a shape as normal. There are still a few slopes that need to be avoided, but I would not avoid the mountain, so come out and have a ball.
I am not as familiar with A-Basin, but skiied there earlier in the year. Then the snow was thin, but they have had storms since. Reports from folks who have gone up there have been very positive.
Do not be depressed. We're having a good time out here.
