Altho A basin in march is one of Colorado's best ski experience's. I am not sure it is getting away from the big guys as far as Crowds and Tourist. I love Powderhorn an mini Boat if you will not real steep but a ton of glades no Crowds and throw back to the 70's type feel. Eldora is nice and has the goods as far as snow this year. sj

im going to cast my vote in with Monarch.....its a bit far, but the quality of terrain, snow, employee friendliness and kick ass scenery is ALL top notch! i have had a Crested Butte season pass for like 12 years and this year I bought a monarch pass instead, and I will be doing this from now on!

If you are going to be staying in the Den. area, before you head anywhere other than eldora, loveland, sol vista or a-basin, decided if you want to spend your whole vacation driving or skiing! Eldora and loveland are closest.

The nice thing about Eldora is you can ski until the lift shuts down, have a drink at the bar and then be Back in Boulder for a cruise on the mall and dinner by 6:00PM without any traffic hassles. If you have not done A-Basin it's worth the trip as well.

Wolf Creek is definately worth the trip if it's getting the goods and no one else is (which is frequently the case). I think it is perpetually snowing up on that pass. Anyway, if you're coming in from Denver stay in South Fork...east side of the pass. A little google work will find you a place on the cheap.

The terrain is variable and can flatten out fast so if you don't know where you're going getting stuck in DEEP pow is a definate possiblitly so be ready to swim. The far right side of the mountain (looking down from top) is serviced by the Alberta lift if I remember correctly...that's where you want to be. Great glades.

I hope in the future Americans are thought of as a warlike, vicious people, because I bet a lot of high schools would pick "Americans" as their mascot. -Jack Handy
