Warning: The ticket that is issued at El Colorado is an electronic ticket that you put in your pocket. It does not have any instructions on it, English or Spanish. If you try to punch it and attach it to your coat like we do in the USA, it WILL NOT WORK!!!! It will be a big hassle to try and exchange it.
The Western face that shares a border with Valle Nevado has some awesome off-piste bowl skiing. We were fortunate to hit it on a powder day and it was great. Unfortunately, they only have t-bar surface lifts over there, so it takes a lot out of you.
The east face is pretty boring. Just straight shots down the mountain. There are a few actual chair lifts, but they are the slowest lifts I have ever seen in my life.
The food at the restaurant at the base was quite good, a lot better than at Valle Nevado, but just as expensive and just as slow.
