Monarch ski area is the most non hassle to get to and actually has some very fun terrain in Mirkwood Basin. Short vertical, but it is very much a Mom and Pop like Loveland or Eldora. It's the same drive as for getting to say Breckenridge.
As far as for after work skiing, there is none for Colorado Springs residents.

|Fruman||You won't find anything around the Springs. You're going to have to go northwest to places budderbear mentioned that are mostly around I-70, or west to Crested Butte by Gunnison. I've heard great things about Crested Butte--I had a buddy to go Western State and he snowboarded there quite often.|

Places to Ride around Colorado Springs
A work buddy of mine just gave his notice today. His Military wife is being transferred to Colorado Springs so he and his 18 year old son are packing it all up and moving. He's a good and avid skier and his son is a very solid boarder/novice instructor. Obviously they're both pretty pumped up about the move.
I'm sure they can find their way around on the weekends to all the big Colorado meccas, but any opinions on little hidden, convenient Mom and Pop hills for night riding 3 or 4 nights a week after work?
