What is the best place in Colorado to ski?
hey guys my family and i are going to be in colorado during the march break. If you guys could tell me the best places to ski with like the best powder, lest crowded, lest expensive and best park....also my park skills aren't probably only intermediate so i don't need hugh kickers. Also i herd that a copper there are cat rides can someone confirm this and tell me if its any good. Thanks Guys!!
If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your thing-Warren Miller
your best bet for good powder and low crowds is in southern Colorado. I really like Wolf Creek snow is always awesome and it is always empty. If you are down there Crested Butte is also sick and is relatively close to Wolf Creek (i think, may be wrong). Keystones park is off the chain right now as is Brecks so those are probably the best bet for your park fix. If you are intermediate at park and want a nice environment to learn I reccomend Echo. Cat skiing... There is a pretty nice operation out of Ski Cooper which is not far from Copper or Vail. They take you up to Chicago ridge. Hope this helps
CB is like 2-3 hours from Wolf Creek
keystone has sick powder and shit if you go to the right places there and their park is sick
def wolf creek...they've gotten dumped on this year, or ski cooper. ski cooper is an awesome little place. it can have powder like 2 weeks after a storm and the tree runs are pretty much epic. either one of those will not dissapoint you. and if you're looking for something a little bigger, i like copper a lot. low crowds on weekdays and some pretty cool terrain. take the cat up to tucker mountain if its snowed recently and have a blast!
jibset, jibset, jibset. jea
Ski the Springs, Rock the Hut
tons of places have cat rides. they cost $5 a pop alot of times or they are an all day event that you buy another ticket for. breck is my fav but if you just want groomers and no lines go to monarch or somethin
If your looking for back country go to Silverton. I've never been there but it looks sick as hell and they get like twice the snow fall of anywhere in summit county.
Winter park is my personal favorite. short lift lines, unlike breck, #1 bumps in N america and they have a bunch of parks for all levels. can't go wrong with winter park. you can get fresh pow mid-day if it's a week day.
the best think winter park's park has is a jibbable horse, i was kinda disapointed when i was there with their parks after hearing a bunch of hype last year.

Gear Pimp: i might just hook you up
That horse is fucking crazy! it is so sketchy. but hey, how many people can say they have jibbed on a horse...
I am looking at Eldora because of good deals, but how is it?
if you are gonna do that might as well just go to Echo. Also Loveland always has coupons for 2 for 1 tickets.
I'm confused about ski cooper. I think some of you said it was$5 cat rides but their site says it's $250. Can anyone tell me about the place?
It's a really small ski area. I believe it used to be a training area for 10th mtn. division. It has I think 2 lifts and a poma lift, really mellow terrain. The snowcat tours are day long and are about $250, it takes you up to Chicago Ridge. Bam.
do those cat tours take u into some shit or what?
elderado sucks doesnt it isnt it just a lil hill buy boulder?
