Since it is so high, Loveland doesn't have a ton of trees (like say WP/MJ). But there are some (and some of them are REALLY tight and steep). I'd suggest picking up a copy of Colorado Front Range Tree Skiing by David Bahr. The great thing about Loveland is that it is mostly what-you-can-see skiing. So you can go wherever you want.

Curious, 420, where do you ski/ride now?

Here are some pictures from early season (mid October) at Loveland last year.

You can also catch many very good skiers/riders at Loveland. A lot of race teams train on Spillway and Richard's Run. Seth Morrison also shows up.

Hey, it's only just over 2 months! What else are you going to do on a summer day other than salivate over snow-covered mountains? Here are some more Loveland shots...

Looking towards Chair 8:

Primer Bowl, May 6 -- the crowds are unbearable!

I should caveat that your chances of hitting great conditions in November are hit or miss. Last year we had a great early season with lots of snow and a lot of stuff opened up early. Two years ago, not so much.

Usually they open the main green run off Chair 1 first with man-made snow in mid October. Followed by Richard's Run, and Spillway. If I recall correctly, usually by mid to late November, a lot of stuff is open (Chairs 1, 2, 6, perhaps 4, and 8). Some areas, like OTR, the Ridge, etc., take a while to open.
