Howelsen Hill

  This is a nice low-intensity alternative to all the big resorts around. Says Matt.

Howelsen Hill has a much higher than average percentage of tough ski runs and a much lower than average percentage of intermediate or beginner ski runs. There are 3 great ski lifts here, and they are in wonderful shape. This is a petite ski area in possession of a more petite than average elevation difference when compared to other US Rockies ski resorts. The yearly snowfall
    is roughly average at Howelsen Hill. With a 440 foot height difference it's not the tallest hill there is, but all the other delightful characteristics of Howelsen Hill make up for it. All the 15 ski runs here are enjoyable to ski
on. The skiable terrain being 70 acres, it's small-size enough to get to know all your fellow ski people. Howelsen Hill has a moderate selection of runs and quite few lifts. Getting your skiing muscles activated and spending some quality time in the wilderness are perfect incentives to come. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, nearby, you'll bump into a lot of perfect locations. The Park Range and its mountains is a view worth seeing.  
The fluffy snow here becomes genuinely deep, 21 feet per winter, and that is one of the greatest features of this ski area. Colorado gets fantastically scenic during snow season; it is truly a tremendous time of year for skiing or snowboarding. These trails are relatively insane sometimes; but if you are hooked on adrenaline you are. Howelsen Hill is an exciting ski resort with plenty of challenging runs. No scarcity of glorious rooms, but if you donít have reservations, you may well end up snoozing in your car. In wintertime the Park Range is so scenic you wonít believe it. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is a splendid thing to do the whole winter season. You get lots of skiers driving up here from Edwards on snow covered weekends.
