Loveland is awesome! I was just on this page checking out snow conditions because they are getting pounded with FEET not inches of snow right now (April?!) and started reading these reviews. It cracks me up that people actually expect a Vail/Interwest coddling-type experience from a mountain that doesn’t need to hide behind all that ridiculous hype. Awesome snow. Awesome terrain. Awesome ticket, pass and food prices. To the reviewer talking about the day they closed everything – what are you talking about? I was there that day and it was AWFUL Loveland did absolutely the right thing closing the lifts at their basin area (and yes, the lifts at the Valley stayed open because in fact they are faced a completely different direction and don’t go as high on the mountain!) And, I was in the bar seeing if I could wait it out and the management was great! They gave everyone a free ticket for another day… something they DID NOT need to do – you know, considering they are not liable/responsible for ANYTHING right?!
