Their location in town makes it easy to swap gear before or after your day on the hill if you have any issues. Luck.

Thanks I am going to contact one of the ski shops tomorrow for reservation of equipment, cause there email is down.

Tahnks a lot

Just FYI, you might have trouble reserving rental equipment right now as a lot of rental shops don't yet know what new stuff they'll be getting in and quite a few of them won't even open until just before ski season starts. You'll have the best of luck making equipment reservations if you wait until mid-Octoberish (and yes, you'll still be able to get a good deal for the holidays if you reserve then).

i would have to agree. loveland gets the most snow out of the Summit Co resorts, and is a giant playgroud of fun. cheap everything, free parking, and the hiking off chairs 9 & 1 kick ass

Dude, Vail or Steamboat are my recommendations! I grew up in "The Boat" and it used to be my favorite until I finally hit Vail a few years ago and the mountain is sweet. Between being able to drop some decent stuff, great groomers for carving and the size of the hill I'd definitely rip that one or two days. The cool thing is that everything is so close that you can bounce around pretty easy.
