I had a customer come in to the shop today, older woman 50's or 60's, who had just moved to northwest ohio from colorado. She was saying how she use to ski all the places in colorado as day trips, vale and such. Her questions is where could she go to ski for a day trip that wouldn't be to far for her and her husband to drive that would give her and the hubby a decent day of skiing being established close to expert skiers. I said well ma'am unfortunately you have to drive about 3 to 4 hours minimum in order to get anything that has decent snow let alone terrain that wont bore yourself. I suggested caberfae, crystal, nubs, holiday valley, peak'n'peak, and then as well informed her of all the small ones like mt. holly, alpine valley, brighton, etc. I just felt bad that there really wasnt to much for this woman to do to satisfy her skiing needs its just really a bad spot for someone that wants to ski on a regular basis and continue to get better or not get bored fast.
