denver is sick, i go to university of denver. i have only once driven longer than 1.5 hours to summit county (breck, keystone, a-basin). that was on a snowy saturday morning.... sorry that poor fuck up above is hating on denver but its awesome. there is a light rail system that is cheap and really easy to get downtown and go to bars- great bar scene all over.
the skiing is obviously sick. no question there and its not far no matter what anyone says. if you can go up other than saturday morning and sunday night then you wont drive for longer than an hour and a half.
pm me if you got any questions about denver- i love it and am never moving away.
ya brah, ill see you in the a-5-1. its gonna be epic in the nar nar pow pow.... brah"
