MaryJane and A-basin.......two of the best places in Colorado to Ski and tailgate. That is no joke. You can park your rig right next to the lifts and drop a bbq right there! The bigger parties usually occur during spring skiing but I agree with NUT why even bother with Aspen. To be honest I haven't even been there since I was a kid but if you are looking to get scalped on hotels/dinner/ and lift tickets that is your place.
Personally I'd recommend Copper or Winterpark/Mary Jane. Depending on how much time you have this might be your best bet for trying to thit the slopes the day before the game. If you leave at the same time as everyone else for the slopes on a Saturday you can expect to hit a traffic jam. If you venture off to a far off resort like Vail or Beaver Creek or Aspen you will more than likely regret it. Unless of course you plan on leaving Denver at 5:00am and returning at 9:00pm. I'm not kidding.
Now if you are planning on skiing on Friday you will be fine wherever you go.
You can usually save money by getting your ski tickets at King Soopers to A-basin, Keystone, Breck, Winter Park/Mary Jane, Copper.
Hope that helps. Depending on what day you are planning on skiing I might be heading up also.
Hey Nut you a skier?
If so we outta do up a Broncos Style tailgate at the slopes one of these days.
I just dropped OF1 off for the paint job/buffing/oil change etc. Once she gets an all clear from the bus pros I'd like to get her up the hill a few times for some skiing/tailgating.
