A-Basin is no BS. Just ski/ride. If you're in the Denver area, it's a short jaunt over Loveland pass for quick steep runs without the mess of a resort. So far as Apres Ski goes, go down to the beach and tailgate with everyone else. If you want serious terrain park, go to Keystone down the road, but if you just want to ride and nothing else, A-Basin will satisfy your craving.
