Obviously the weather will probably dictate where I'll end up riding, but ideally I'd like to do 3 days (thinking Fri, Mon, Tues to avoid crowds?) and spend each day at a different resort. I just want to experience it all.
If I had 3 days in Colorado the 2nd week in April and I was staying in Denver, I would plan to hit Copper Mountain, Arapaho Basin and Loveland.
A Basin and Loveland will be great that time of year and Copper has some very high elevations that will have great snow. A Basin and Loveland are not resorts...they are ski areas that have very interesting terrain. Copper is a full on ski resort and it is huge.
