I agree...Ski Cooper....I took my kids ages 7, 5, and 3 there this past April...got the 2 youngest lessons and everyone had a ball. Also, nothing like just rolling right up to the lodge and parking without forking out at least 20 bucks for parking...the cheap lessons and lift tickets are nice also. Some slower lifts, but who cares, your riding with your kids having fun.

Fun drive as well

Dozer Thanks for the replies, a co-worker suggested grandby ranch what other small areas would you suggest

killclimbz That is a tough one. If Copper has Union Creek open, it would be fine. Traffic does suck that weekend but it's far from being the worst travel wise. The thing is you probably won't know that.

Burton's advice is probably right on. If Loveland has the valley open it would be a good spot to go too.

The biggest problem is if the snowfall has started in earnest for the season. I hate to say it, but often times when we get these early snows, the faucet shuts off for weeks. Sometimes it doesn't really get going until the first week of December or (shudder) later. Hopefully November brings plenty snow, but Thanksgiving is still pretty early and you often have early season conditions. Little more than the white ribbon of death, which is not great for kids.

BurtonAvenger Neither of those places that weekend sucks ass for traffic I'd go to one of the smaller resorts or ones off the beaten path.
