I added some more resorts outside of Colorado, and removed the early season rates that have already passed. The Freeride pass is still in the list, but should stand on it's own as one of two multi-park Passes I am aware of.

Winter Park has a small percentage of steep or technical, and is more suited to beginning riders and those who 'only ride park'. Keystone has more steep and technical trails than any of the other resorts, and is probably more what you are looking for. I, of course, encourage you to sample all of Colorado and New Mexico's fine MTB parks and make your own decisions.

If I'm around when you're here for Keystone, I'll go out for some laps. I live just down the road from there and get out there often.

Eh, just depends...

Granby has not been the same without Momentum Trail Concepts, and is trying to attract an eclectic mix of hardcore racers and families. I feel like they are going to fail at both unless they pick one over the other. For the past two years, they have hired Singletrack Trails to add new trails and fill in the jumps. This year, I have not heard that they hired anyone, so I would guess they have local staff working it (aka winter lifties). My wife and I went a couple of times last year, and the most difficult trails had become more difficult due to overgrown grass and lack of maintenance. I would give you the same advice and give it try. It's only a couple of minutes down the road from WP and has warmer weather.

Snowmass is one of the few areas I have not visited recently enough to have a valid opinion. We used to race there all the time, and the race courses were fast, steep, technical, and challenging. Since then, Snowmass has moved towards the bike park trend of smooth flow trails. I don't know how that is working out, but I know some great riders are on the trail teams. Someone else will have to have to chime in on a comparison.

mtbparks.com does a good job of it too, but I prefer condensed information. Neither site includes ROI days or total available weekends. I would also like to do a column for miles of trail and cost per mile, but have not had time yet.
