Full review

I went to Colorado on a trip for 4 days and loved every day of skiing/boarding, despite the lack of snow this season. They only had 2/3 of their trails open but it kept me busy for all 4 days and i once i skied the backside i was hooked. If you ever go to Steamboat you must go to the backside, it is diamonds and such but well worth it if you like tree skiing and a "backcountry" feel without worrying about avalanches and such. At the time they did lack the usually terrain parks but it was still early in January. Also, they have a lot of moguls but if you don't like them you'll be fine too. Go to Steamboat it is worth it.
