i spent a week here about 2 weeks ago and it was amazing. this place has it all. no lift lines, cool people, and some amazing terrain. it also has an incredible view from the continental divide at ridge on the top of lift 9. there's steep faces and walls all along the ridge, heavy moguls along the south side, easy cruisin blues in the west face (along with some amazing tree runs). and my favorite terrain along the north face off lifts 4 and 8. i could board those all day. as a bonus you can score lift tics on the denver craigslist for dirt cheap. i got 4 days of passes for $27 a pop. never will i waste my money and time sitting in the lines of the major resorts. also as a bonus, there's the suuper accesible bc of loveland pass (just park in the designated area and hitchhike up). don't tell too many people though so it doesn't get too busy, i'm sure mr right and greenthumb would be pissssssed!
