Default Best Ski Areas around Greenley, CO?

I'm planning on heading out to Greenley, Colorado to meet some friends and snowboard. I am wondering what are the closest ski areas with roads that are 2wd sedan friendly? I hear that loveland is nice.

Thinking about hitting Taos and Loveland. I think it's a plan. Any suggestions?

Do you mean Greeley (not Greenley)? Taos is nowhere near Greeley, and neither is Loveland ski area for that matter. The city of Loveland, CO is near Greeley but that's not the ski area of the same name. Eldora might be the closest resort.

Probably 90 minutes away without any major mountain passes:

Greeley is out East. Cow country.

Not much very close, but you can be at the big mountains in a couple hours. If you know how to drive only having a 2WD car usually isn't a problem. Different story if there's a bad storm, but normally the roads would be closed by then anyway. I've seen a guy at Breckenridge a couple times that drives up a C5 Z06 with a roof rack.
