I can vouche for Monarch if budget is a concern. Nice place with something for everyone. Back in college we would save all our money and go skiing as often as we could. Been to Santa Fe, purgatory,wolf creek, crested butte, copper mountain,winter park and a few others. Like I said, it was college, I don’t remember much. BUT, did monarch and purgatory later on as a responsible adult in disguise.Monarch is beginner friendly, offer lessons all day long and even if crowded it's pretty efficient. If your son is like my son and daughter he'll pick up on it quickly. They did lessons the first morning, spent the first afternoon on the easy stuff and by midday the second day they were on the blacks.
