My wife has a conference in Vail so while I'm up there I figured I'd take the opportunity to try to get in a few turns. Are there any permanent snowfields or glaciers reasonably close to Vail? Another requirement is that the area not be subjected to federal government shutdown.
I have a solid 4x4 so service roads etc. are no problem.
I am thinking about going to St. Mary's if there isn't anything better.
