Loveland is a smaller resort close to Denver catering to dedicated riders/skiers. Season passes are affordable. If you are looking for a place to go get some pow, make a few turns...ride, this is the place. Stuff a PB&J in your pocket & your set type place.
If you are looking for a coushy resort for the family, w/the big condos, 17 restraunts, 8man people movers, go to one of the Vail owned resorts Breck, Keystone, Vail, Beavercreek, A-Basin(I know a-Basin is no longer owned by, but it is still affiliated with).
Right now is pre-season, no where in Colorado is good until Dec/Jan. Loveland is always one of the first to open becouse it caters to people who love to ride. Sorry to hear somebody had such a negative time. Next time go to Keystone, it's the faamily mountain 15min over the pass.
