Snow, no lift lines, 50 min from house ;)
No resort nightlife, minimal "terrain park"
I love Loveland! Not a great boarder but working on it, more mountain than park. Loveland is great for some fun open runs and great powder. Minimal crowds, I can often still find lower area fresh runs in places when I get there midday during the week, ridge seems to always have fresh untouched areas. On a clearish day during the week I can make it from Coors Field to the parking lot in about 50 minutes, so that is awesome. Easy beginner runs but not tons of them, 20% Beg/40%Int/40% Advanced?
