I love going to the resorts as much as anyone, but wouldn't it be so nice to just skip the lift passes, the travel, and the crowds?  I thought so!

One of these includes a site close to Fort Collins that was an official ski resort years ago, yet people still go to quite often, for both skiing and sledding.

As for myself, I like having lifts and groomed trails, so maybe one day I will toughen up and latch onto this stuff.  Here, check it out!
