Loveland is awesome because there are rarely long lines. If you go during the week you can ride down the mountain and hop on the lift without ever stopping. I'm a relatively new boarder myself and there is plenty of blue runs to keep you occupied, especially off of lifts 4 and 8. If it is busy you can always hit lift 6 which has some good blues and typically short lift lines. Can't say much for A-basin or Keystone, yet. By the way coverage is pretty good right now at Loveland, got about 7 inches this week and March and April are the snowiest months for Loveland and A-basin.
