Add in the fact that the base of the Hogan Bowl is between the main lift and Pali, with skiers cruising by to get to Pali, and you have to stress out every time your kid gets near the bottom, they can't just run it out.

    Compared to resorts like Winter Park, that have virtually flat terrain like Discovery Park and then gradations of steeper beginner terrain, with no faster intermediate or expert skiers around, and I stand by my statement. There are many better places on the front range to teach your kid to ski. Loveland, for ex, would be a much better option that's close by.
    Agree...Loveland and Copper, IMO, are the best for teaching a kid. Especially Copper.

    Yeah, keep them in the bubble.

    Sorry, I'm not a parent, and I'm sure you guys are doing a great job. I'd probably agree if I were looking after a miniature human.

    Wow that got a bigger response than I thought. That was about 90% tongue in cheek, apparently that didnít come across....

    Canít blame those who donít want to take kids to the WROD, itís not that bad but certainly isnít as much fun with kids as other options later in the year. I think I took mine there once or twice and was reminded why I donít resort ski until much later in the year. Not even sure if they will have anything appropriate for kids that small as hogan wonít be open.

    Disaster averted, buddy of mine is going to meet up with us monday morning. Will get the little one out on her skis on some flat areas if they have snow in a quiet zone somewhere around the base. Otherwise we'll take turns taking runs and making snowmen or whatever. Orange Tacoma, curly-haired kid if any mags wanna say hi.

    BTW I guess Vail and BC got a sneaky 3-6" last night. Kinda surprising as we didn't see anything in Summit afaik.

    Learned to ski at Copper and Winter Park growing up, great place to do it. Not on my top list of places to ski anymore though.

    Some cool pictures from the air today, Keystone and Breck
