We are 3 families visiting Silverthorne CO for a week. We have 3 adults (ski) and 3 kids(snowboarding) for 5 days, and are torn between Copper Mountain and Loveland. Loveland ski school costs seems a lot more reasonable than Copper Mountain (all 3 kids are going to ski/snowboard school for all days). We do not care much about a town/facilities at the base of the resort, since we are at the ski resort only for skiing, and then head back to our cabin in Silverthorne for dinner/drinks. We are average skier/snowboarders, can do black runs, as are the kids (12-14 yrs). But we would like the runs to be nice and fairly long, and a decent variety of different runs to take. Ski school is also very important to us, esp for the kids.
I would greatly appreciate your guidance on which resort we should go to, esp when we will go to the same resort for all 5 days. Any pros and cons of each, along with your recommendation will be very helpful.
Thank you very much,
