The place is way too small for how many people go there...Especially on the weekends. Last season, they didn't have shit for snow till well into January. Less than 1/4 of their total 200 acres were open by the end of Dec last season. And if you were hoping that anyone that works at Echo isn't gona be a total dick to you, keep on dreaming.
It took me about 40-45 min to drive to Echo...Why go to Echo when you can make it to Loveland in 50-55 min and have 100x more terrain choices? Sure, it's super quick to get to the Evergreen exit, but it's a bit of a drive up a winding 2 lane mountain road (speed limit varies between 35 and 45mph) to get from the Evergreen exit on I-70 to Echo Mtn.
