Are there any other ski areas close to Denver besides Eldora & Winter Park? Are these areas so overly crowded because they are the closest?

Eldora, Winter Park, Loveland and A-basin are the closest. WP, Loveland and A-basin you'll have to deal with I-70.

WP is large enough with Mary Jane that the crowds aren't that bad, but Berthoud Pass can get pretty gnarly.

Loveland is a local mountain and crowds are usually minimal on a weekday and you don't have to worry about the tunnel.

Eldora isn't crowded and has some pretty good terrain. The road is windy and two lane. I've had several people get motion sickness on ride to Eldora.

Loveland is the closest. It is never very crowded and is a great mountain. The only downside is I-70.

I think that Copper is about the same distance as Winter Park.

and loveland is on east side of the tunnel, meaning you don't have to fight as much of I-70

74.5 miles Denver - Keystone
77.5 to Copper - right on i-70
69.5 to Winter Park (Berthod Pass, no Eisenhower tunnel)
56.5 to Loveland

So many choices.

Why is everyone scared of the tunnel? This isn't the Holland Tunnel - no toll (yet), no traffic (weekdays).
If you take Loveland pass to Keystone, it saves about 10 miles.
