North America April advice

If I were planning to skiing in April in the U.S., I would look at A-Basin. That's my preferred resort in Colorado. High base, good snow cover, lots of above treeline skiing and most of the people there are committed skiers because the mountain, aside from skiing, doesn't offer much of anything else. You can always stay further down in Keystone. I've skied there as late as late May and, that particular year, they had a base of 240 cm as the base of the resort is above 3000 meters.


I think A basin is a terrible suggestion for an average tourist. Yes it's a nice place and has plenty to occupy the advanced skier/hiker but it is very small in terms of pistes and has some very slow old chairs. Great if you're up to lapping Pali bumps all day, not so good if you want to cruise blues. Plus it gets really busy with Denverites as the VR places shut up shop.

For average tourist, yes. For a good skier, no. True... A-Basin offers nothing for the average tourist and that's why Keystone may be a good option further down the valley. They may be open in mid-April. Saw that these were last year's closing dates in/near Summit County. Is that accurate?

Jasper? Just an idea, scenery, skiing, too far from anywhere for drinking to be too strict (guess).

Funny isn't it...

Sorry, I'm not allowed to sell you this beer, as you are only 18. But would sir like to purchase a shotgun instead? Shocked

Simple, the US constitution guarantees gun ownership being a RIGHT. Drinking, on the other hand, is a privilege.

There was a time in the not so long past drinking were entirely PROHIBITED! Even today, you still can't even buy alcoholic beverages on Sunday before noon in many towns and villages, whatever the age.

whether it's a right or a privilege makes no difference to outsiders looking in.

unfortunately it just seems bonkers to the majority of the world. Sad
