We had always passed by Loveland on the way to the larger "resorts"; this time we decided to try it, looking for a more relaxed place to ski. The skiing is great, the atmosphere is laid-back and family friendly, and the price cannot be beaten for what you get in return. Yes, it can be windy, but it gets a LOT of snow. And yes, the lifts are slow, but you don't have to wait in line. We'll definitely be back.
