I am getting ready for a Colorado snowboarding trip in a couple of weeks... YAAAY !!
I have been all over the country and I generally like CO resorts best (Keystone and A-Basin being my favorite), however, one thing I liked better at Heavenly was tree riding, which was absolutely phenomenal. There were multiple wooded trails and rather nice and steep, just the way I like. I suppose one thing that made that possible in the Sierras is that the trees were bigger and somewhat more spread apart for that reason than regular evergreens in the Rockies.
I will be mostly around Summit Co. resorts, including the two above mentioned, also Copper, Winter Park etc.
I was looking for ideas on which of the ski areas in the general vicinity and up to an hour away have a good variety of legal (so not off bounds) tree skiing/riding.
CLARIFICATION: What I mean by
tree skiing/riding is skiing/riding through forested areas, trees presenting an obstacle to dodge
