Great skiing at A-Basin. I recommend exiting in Silverthorne rather than on the 6. The Silverthorne exit will probably be a safer drive. I recommend purchasing lift tickets from Liftopia.com to save some money.

Keystone is my favorite ski hill! Lots of slopes for all ability levels. There is also a nice resort village if you’d prefer to relax. Arapahoe Basin is just down the road. I recommend purchasing passes from Liftopia.com to save some money.

This is a great rental shop. Very fair pricing. You can pick these up on the way to the ski hill and return them at any other Breeze shop. (There is one right outside Arapahoe Basin and Keystone.)
