Closest thing to Whistler in America?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

What US resort would you say is the closest thing to Whistler - awesome skiing, awesome (upscale) village/town at base of the mountain?  Don't want the Steamboat / Jackson Hole thing where the town and restaurants are a 15 - 20 minutes drive from the mountain.  Looking for nice, "easy" to get around, good restaurants, and a cool village/town (and great skiing of course).  Not taking the family this time, just the boyz.  I appreciate your opinion!

My initial thought is Vail.

Some other obvious candidates in addition to Vail:

Aspen, stay at base of Ajax for immediate access to some nice, long, black diamonds and great town, ride free bus to more great skiing at nearby Aspen Highlands and Snowmass.  Others: Telluride, Park City, Breckenridge.

Big Sky or Sun Valley.

Aspen for sure.  I saw the B52's Friday night at the Belly Up and town's full of babes.
