About 7 guys are heading out from Australia for a bachelor party with 5 days skiing followed by 3 days in Vegas. There are 5 skiers and 2 snowboarders in the group, all of intermediate level and we are struggling to decide on the best location.
We'll becoming in via LAX on 1 March 2013 and want to head straight to the resort so need somewhere with good flight connections so we don't waste too much time travelling. The other priorities are:
- Good quality and quantity of snow (I know, that can really depend on a lot of factors)
- Great ski village atmosphere with a reasonable nigh tlife and availability of ski-in/ski-out accommodation that also provides accessibility to the village
- as we are heading to Vegas after skiing, we don't want to waste an entire day getting there
- somewhere where we don't need a car to get around
We have done a bit of research and think we have narrowed it down to Park City, Mammoth and Vail but each destination has its pros and cons.
Would really appreciate any advice from people who have been to these resorts or can recommend others, to help us make a decision.
