Naughty snowboarding. The runs were awesome! Steep, fast, good width, great views. When we went it was super windy but it just added to the fun! If you a good snowboarder who love to charge runs, this should be up your street!

A-basin. Yes. You have access to hike any peak, well above 11K ft. The chutes are great. The hike to the peak is gradual, not aggressive. Great Bowl to ski, nice cornices. Continental Divide spot. Skiing in April, all of May, maybe a weekend in...More

Late season skiing in the Rockies! I can't think of anything bad to say, because there isn't. Even tho the base was slush and slow, (which is to be expected late season) the place was still well-maintained and up near the summit was still a...More

Close to Denver and the only resort that remains open till late in the season. Agree with all the recommendations: More of a "locals" place but welcomes EVERYONE!
