A work buddy of mine just gave his notice today. His Military wife is being transferred to Colorado Springs so he and his 18 year old son are packing it all up and moving. He's a good and avid skier and his son is a very solid boarder/novice instructor. Obviously they're both pretty pumped up about the move.
I'm sure they can find their way around on the weekends to all the big Colorado meccas, but any opinions on little hidden, convenient Mom and Pop hills for night riding 3 or 4 nights a week after work?
Not around Colorado springs unfortunately. Best mom and pop places to me are Eldora (haven't been in years) Arapahoe Basin (not quit the same after teaming up with vail) and Loveland (still sweet but unsettling to see so many immigrant lifties when I'm trying to get a job there)
p.s. Colorado Springs is currently on fire... well not literally but pretty dam close.
