Cool Colorado-Where to go?

Hey there,
Not sure if this was the right place to put this thread, but I couldn't find anywhere else. Anyway, I recently convinced my family to go on a weekend trip to Colorado this winter. However, I am not sure where to go this year. Last winter I went to Keystone which was awesome, but the lift lines were terrible, and the price of the lift tickets were not worth it ($180 for 2 days). So this year I am looking at smaller ski places with cheaper lift tickets. If you could help me choose a place that would be awesome. So far I have looked at and am interested in:
1. Loveland
-4 lift tickets for $129!
2. Monarch
-my friend went here and loved it, he said there are no lift lines, even on christmas break.
3. Eldora
4. Ski Cooper
5. A-Basin

Some info I would like to know:
-Crowds
-Lift speeds
-avg. snow in Febuary

Keep in mind that I have my dad with me, who has never skied, so it cant be all black diamonds. Also, I am coming from STL so the closer to denver the better.

Thank You,
Sam
