Great ski trip to Loveland. Snowed the entire time. Lots of great terrain for experts and intermediates. Did not ski any of the beginner runs so I am not sure how they are. The lift set up is well planned, with the exception of returning to the base from chair 8. Due to snowy conditions most of the runs has 2-3 inches of powder so I am not sure how the grooming is. Good prices and selection for lunch. This is a local ski hill. There is no lodging on the hill. We stayed in Georgetown, about 12 miles to the ski hill and found some good spots to eat and stay. The wind can be strong at the top of the lifts and it can be cold at the top. Traffic on I-70 was horrible! It took an hour to go 12 miles. This was due to snowy conditions near the tunnel so be aware. We had a great time and would ski at Loveland again. Great choice if you do not want a resort experience or crowds.
