Echo Mountain is terrain park skiing/riding only. It's located off CO-103, just northwest of Evergreen. Other than that, I know absolutely nothing about them.

HA, do you know if they survive mostly on man-made snow? I can't imagine it gets that much snow there (which is why the old Squaw Pass ski area closed down in the first place I believe?). Although, you don't need a ton of natural snow for a terrain park, so it probably works out.

It is in a bowl that is north facing so it doesn't get a lot of direct sun for most of the day.

It does OK with the snow they do get combined with the man made stuff. Being only a terrain park it doesn't need complete coverage everywhere, all the time.

It is great for what it is.

A local terrain park that you can drive up to in 20min, hang out with your friends, have some fun etc...

They are also putting in more and more lights for night time fun.

According to the website (now who would've thought to actually check there!), they get 215 inches of snow. Did not expect it to be that much.
