This is another sad example of the pathetic state of Colorado skiing. First, Copper Mountain transforms itself over the span of 2-3 years into another overcrowded, beginner focussed area, like Keystone or Brekenridge -- thanks Intrawest, or should I say Intraworst.
Now, Berthoud, one of the last great areas left is shutting down again. Granted it only had 2 lifts and it was small, but the terrain blew away anyplace in Colorado. It was like a mini Jackson Hole -- more dumps than any CO resort north of Wolf Creek, steep, no grooming and no crowds.
What do we have to look forward to...the city has plans to develop Winter Park...gee that will be great yet another Keystone/Breckenridge.
Colorado skiing, at least in the front range, is dead.
