2018 Colorado Trip: Need Advice
It looks like a group of 4-6 of us have decided to plan a trip to Colorado next January for a week... spending 2-3 days skiing and boarding... and a couple of days driving around to check out various breweries. I would love input from people to help us narrow down a home base.
1. I don't mind driving 2-3 hours from Denver if needed. I think we will all end up flying into Denver.
2. Our on-hill expertise varies. A couple are beginning skiers, I'll be an early/mid intermediate snowboarder and one of us eats double-blacks for breakfast-lunch-and dinner. Thus, we need a mountain that has a larger scale selection of green/blues, but a little of the gnar to keep the one guy in our group happy.
3. Would kind of prefer to ride at one mountain for at least 2 of the days. Would consider a second mountain for a 3rd day if people think we'd be silly not to. Ideally, staying at one mountain would be the most ideal though.
4. Do any mountains have proximity to - or support - a craft beer scene more than others? Something like Stowe in VT? We have ZERO interest in visiting or being in Denver.
I've been thinking maybe Copper, but don't know much... so any input or ideas would be AWESOME.
