Loveland is a good resort for anyone who actually wants to SKI. There are no high class restaurants and no fancy dining. If you are looking for that then you should probably fork out a few hundred dollars at Vail instead. I've never waited for more than 10 minutes to get on a chair after 12 years. Although the terrain park is moderate at best, the steeps, on the other hand, are amazing. I find that most of the people who dislike them, hate them only because they are too hard for them. When I go to places like Keystone, it's funny to see the difference in the definition of "Extreme" runs. Skiing at loveland really gives you an advantage in skiing gnarley terrain. Finally, on a pow day, the bowls on either side of 9 are amazing. The true definition of steep and deep, especially since this season has been pretty amazing; and yes, it does get windy at 12,700 feet. Someone inform the press.
It's for those reasons and many more that loveland is by far my favorite resort, or day area more correctly, to ski at; especially on the deeper days. If your looking for the best park, then of course places like Breck, Keystone, Aspen etc. are going to be your best bet.
