Default Season Pass... Too Late?

Looks like I'll be in Denver till the end of May. Looking to get some riding in - mostly weekends, some weekdays.

Daily tickets, ticket packs or season pass. Any advice?

I'm an intermediate all-mountain recreational rider. Would be contented hitting a single resort all winter, as long as there's fairly decent snow and variety of terrain. Doesn't have to be great or all that big either.

Looks like season passes are still available at Loveland and A-Basin. Which one would you recommend? How are the snow conditions and terrain/variety at Loveland and A-Basin this season?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Between those two my pick would be Loveland. It is not on any mega pass deal and has fun terrain. So the amount of people that hit the Luv is much less In comparison. Plus it is probably the quickest Dtown drive to any area amd it's location lets you know when traffic is starting to suck and you can get out quickly if you want. Plenty of the type of terrain you want there too.

A-Basin is pretty rad. Smaller, though I don't know how much Montezuma bowl has expanded the terrain and feel of the place either. The season generally runs until June there instead of the first weekend of May like the Luv too.

Is A Basin still doing that spring pass that's good from January 25th till close? If they are that's some of the best bang for the buck if it's still $239 like it was a few years ago when I got it.

Not the biggest resort but definitely some good varying terrain.

Thanks for the input guys. Don't see a spring pass on the A-Bay website. Only the whole season pass for $299. Will wait another day or two, see if a spring pass offer shows up.
