The kids and I went up to Loveland yesterday and the snow was really good. There were several runs open instead of the normal early-season one run, and even two trails on chair 6 were open! Man was it fun.:thumb:

looking at getting my 8 year old nephew a snow board lesson for his birthday this year. What do you think? Loveland or Keystone?

Keystone as it will not be as cold.

Wolf Creek and Mt. Charleston opened last weekend. Looks like Summit CO is behind the curve this year...

At 8, he's ready to GO! Get him the Loveland 3 lesson pass, which includes a full season pass there. The lessons are full day and include lunch. A rental board/boots/helmet are also included. It 3 lessons he will have the basic skills and be ready to use them on the hill. That season pass also includes 3 days free at Monarch and 3 at Durango, if you want to take him on a roadtrip. It is a killer deal!

you guys nailed the dilemma. Keystone, at least for a beginner, would be a better experience. It would be warmer. Loveland would be less expensive and closer.

Keystone also gives you the night skiing option if you wanted to hit the slopes after a day of school. Cold but an option.

Coming from the midwest I don't remember skiing during the day much. Night tickets there were only $14 in high school. I skied after school about 3 nights a week.

The only season my kids didn't do well was the season we tried Loveland. Really cold, not much beginner terrain. The other years we did Copper Mtn, which is awesome for lessons and families. I don't know about Keystone, but the experience should be better for kids.
