10 days at Vail/Beaver creek is the option on the Colorado pass. A-Basin is the only one on that list that is not a "Vail" resort property, but they might as well be.
Winterpark/MJ are the same area just different mountains. So basically you have the Intrafag's option of Copper/Winterpark or for another $100 Copper/Winterpark with 6 days at Steamboat. When I buy a pass I get the Copper/WP one. The main reason is that if traffic is lousy I can always peel off on 40 and head to WP.

Loveland is a great hill and rarely do I have a bad time there. They get tons of snow and because they are independent crowds are less. I have two problems with the place. 1. weather, when it gets nasty it's hard to find quality terrain that is well protected by trees, not impossible though. Limited lift service on those days.
2. The big one for me, is that it is located by the tunnel on the divide. So you have to deal with the crawl from Georgetown to the tunnel on busy weekends. That is the main reason I don't go to Loveland that much. I like the bail out option for 40.

And of course there is 3. Berthoud is better than all the places mentioned. Fire up 'dem quads!

Lots of options, that's good. Well I'll see what looks good when I get out there.


And I know I know I know that using college as an excuse is HORRIBLE, but being 17, turning 18 in a month, and living on my own while still in highschool is going to kill me. I've got to save as much money as possible, even if it means boarding at Greek Peak until I have the money to move out to Colorado.

life IS good.

Yeah very horrible. Kind of like getting accepted to the University of Denver and what you are really there to do is rockclimb and snowboard. I've been here and happy ever since...

Honestly, I'd love to go to Denver... I've got to check prices for school/housing though. I really don't want massive student loans.

Well I'm not sure what you mean about school whether you are speaking university or community college but if you are going community look up Red Rocks (I'm sure you know this but in case..) not even expensive for a community college and my friend is getting into the school of mines after 3 years of school there. You can find relatively inexpensive apartments/rental homes nearby. If you wanted to really look into it I may be able to find you some reliable roommates if not find you a resource for them.

Mr. Right... I think I just found my college. Thank you sooo much. That's the same I would pay for a community college here, and a 2 year is all I need for a Criminal Justice degree. I'm most definately applying there.

I may be moving to Colorado very soon!

life IS good.

if you go to red rocks you can live in evergreen or idaho springs and be like an hour(if that) away from pretty much every resort off 70. golden is close too.

google maps says it's like 1h15min from my front door to winter park, but it also said that georgetown is like 45 minutes away and we can get there in 20.

too bad we voted down the monorail, then you could just go to metro and live in student housing for cheap and ride the choo choo every day off.

Actually mono rail was never really given a chance.

If you are going to school live by your school. You'll spend more time doing that than going snowboarding. It really isn't much of a drive to hill from any place in Denver. Much shorter than say driving to Vermont, or from the Bay to Tahoe. Pretty easy imo...
