we are a group of experienced Italians back-country skiers planning a 10-12 days February vacation on the mountains west of Denver. We will rent a house in a convenient place and move from there to various trail. I am familiar with the ski resort in the area but I never did backcountry skiing there. We would appreciate any suggestion on witch area to make base in order to find a good variety of trail within a short drive .
I have identify some possible areas on Google ( Grand Lake and Fraser, North of I-70 ; Twin Lakes, South of I-70) , can anyone tell me if there are good trails in these areas ?
Thanks in advance and best regards,
