This season my friends and I traded corporate Vail Resorts for some little used, extremely gnarly inbounds riding at Loveland Ski Area. One bluebird powderday we rode to the ridge and were happily surprised to find Ski Patrol would tow us to the top of an untracked bowl, with tight side chutes–FOR FREE. We couldn’t even tip him. Being towed with 3 of your best friends to your own personal chute was like being in a snowboarding video. This never would have happened at a Vail Resort. Loveland is now our home mountain for gearing up for big mountain comps. I LOVE LOVELAND!!
