Vote for D

A- incomplete sentence
B- weird meaning. Seems to mean that there are no slopes without music because skiers can select from hard rock, etc. ...
C- "However" is not necessary here. Not contradicting anything in the first sentence
D- Correct. Nice meaning and can stand as a complete sentence by itself
E- cannot stand as a complete sentence by itself

(A) skiers can choose among hard rock, soft pop, and “beautiful music” slopes, there are
This creates a run-on sentence, two separate lines joined by comma instead of some connecting punctuation or semicolon or full stop.

(B) because skiers can choose hard rock, soft pop, or “beautiful music,” there are
Change in meaning. This sentence implies because there are music option, therefore there is no slopes without meaning.

(C) however, skiers can choose among hard rock, soft pop, “beautiful music,” and
Change in meaning. This sentence implies skiers can choose from rock, pop, BM, and no music.

(D) although skiers can choose among hard rock, soft pop, and “beautiful music” slopes, there are
Seems Correct.

(E) skiers can choose among hard rock, soft pop, “beautiful music” slopes, but
"and" is missing among 3 music categories.
