We are highly considering moving to FC or Loveland. How long does it actually take to get to a good ski resort? Including traffic on weekends, since we will have a typical work schedule. Any of the resorts is fine, the closer the better.
We used to work in Vail, right after college & loved it there, but I know it is much further from FC...
Where do people in FC usually ski? What is that resort like?
Thanks in advance. All replies on my other posts have been an immense help

closest ski resort os Eldora Mtn. about 90 minutes away. Nice thing is that you don't have to drive on I70 over the MTNS. Next closest is Loveland at 2 hrs.

I just google mapped the driving time from Loveland to Silverthorne (near Breckenridge & Keystone) & it said
2 hrs 15 min...how realistic is this? Especially on a Friday night during ski season?
Is it maybe 4 hrs ? Or am I way off... I hope it's less! I understand, this wouldn't count a day where there is a big snowstorm.

From the Loveland / Ft. Collins area, you are looking at roughly 2 - 2 1/2 hours to get to the Keystone, Copper Mountain, and Breckenridge areas, depending on traffic (Vail is a little further west by another 30 minutes or so).

Jeremy Bloom, Olympic Moguls skier, grew up in Loveland and commuted to the Silverthorne area on weekends while he was grwoing up to perfect his skills in skiing (my wife taught him in kindergarten). So it can easily be done.

Going the other direction, Steamboat Springs is about 4 hours. It is hard to say where everyone skis at. There are many to choose from that are easily within 3 hours drive from the Loveland / Ft. Collins area.
