I usually ski at Sunshine and Lake Louise, but I have a work trip to Denver coming up in 2 weeks time. I've timed it so I can get my work stuff done on Friday and Monday, then ski on the weekend in between. But my question is where to ski within a couple of hours of Denver. I suppose Vail seems the obvious choice, but I thought I'd throw it out here to see if anybody with some more experience can recommend something to me.
I like a lot of variety... I like skiing trees, bumps, groomers, steeps, basically everything. Good snow is a plus. Even though I resent the prices vail is charging for a lift ticket, and for hotels, money isnt that important. I might not get another chance to ski in colorado for a while, so i want to make the most of it.
any ideas would be appreciated
