Best Locals' Mountain - 2008
Loveland Ski Area
There are no hotels here. No jewelry stores, no $10 hamburgers. You don't have to pay to park, and you don't see many Texans on the hill. Most of the people who ski and ride "Lovie" do it with pride, a great deal of them professing their affection with bumperstickers. Sure, it's windy and the lifts are slower, but when the breezes blow the right way, the snow stacks up quickly, and without all the crowds. Loveland is our land.
