With nearly 3,000 acres over three peaks, this is Colorado's third biggest ski area. Just recently, Parsenn Bowl was added, a huge expanse of above-treeline skiing heading down into pretty glades, all accessible via the new Treeline lift, which reaches a giddy 12,060ft and gives spectacular views.
Vasquez Cirque offers some of the most challenging terrain.
The unpretentious feel appeals to boarders, and the resort looks after them. Facilities include a half-pipe with a pumping sound system under the Eskimo Express, and two terrain parks with every kind of jump, rail and kicker.
Rail Yard Terrain Park at 3650Ft long and 15 acres, runs the length of one of the longest runs.

Try the Video Arena, where you ski down a slope to be taken apart by instructors who then decide which lesson is best for you. The Children's Center at the base has games, daycare and a magic carpet lift. They're building a "warming tent" too, showing great care over their children's facilities.
