I did some research and it looks like the only resorts open now are Loveland and A-Basin. Correct me if i am wrong.

Is there any reason to pick one over the other? I've been to Loveland and it was ok. not much park at all.

I noticed in craigslist that there are a lot of lift tix so it would be a cheap day over A-Basin.

on a side note anyone know if any Utah resorts still open?

Pretty sure Snowbird will be open for awhile.  Not much park going on there.

I am also pretty sure that Loveland's Park is better than anything A-Basin has.

How is A-Basin right now Ejekted, I would imagine we still have some killer snow up there since the mtns are rocking 250% the normal snowpack?

A-Basin Is Still Rockin’ It! All the rain we've had down here in the front range has equaled Lots-O Snow for A-Basin! Had a few good powder days, nothing like full on winter pow but still way above average spring snow where it has stayed light & didn’t turn to mashed potatoes by mid day. Get Out There And Ride While We Can!!!

The snow is still decent at Abay, the bottom is slushy but with over two feet of new snow last week, it's still pretty great! It's always awesome getting to shred fresh powder Memorial Day weekend hahaha

Oh and anyone in Central Colorado... Aspen re-opened for this weekend since they still have a 71" base at the top! Get out there and get it while we can!

I drove past A-Basin last week and it looked great. Even Vail Pass looked great. We were in town looking for housing, so it was my first time into the CO mountains. Can't wait to move in a few weeks!
