It passed my t-shirt test.
I just went there for first time this April. I've been to many areas over 40+ years. I love 'em all, but it's one of the handful that was so impressive I had to buy a t-shirt and bumper sticker before leaving.
Very special and historic place. Long may it rule as king of spring. Zuma Bowl is a recent and great addition. Even though A-basin is one of the closest ski areas to Denver, going there gives you a nice taste of the best that Colorado has to offer in skiing and mountain scenery.
How did you handle the altitude? Did you ski same day as flying from sea level?
