Oh where.... Aspen, Vail or…? [traveling from Scotland]

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hoping to head US from Scotland Jan 11th. Thinking of Aspen or Vail which we've really enjoyed before but would really want good cover with good off piste, bowls and trees. We see many a forecast but wonder how it's really looking? Is there really a good base and good stuff open?

We are looking for an extensive area with good cover to make the journey.
Other options could be to head north to o Banff. Loved Winter Park last year and have enjoyed Park City too.

Help and suggestions hugely welcome. Need to book soon!

Thanks Govnor, were giving that a bit of thought too. Loved it years ago although having done it we wondered if it would be big enough to enjoy so much again.
Thanks Habacomike, if Aspen's skiing that well we'll certainly give it more of a look.
Input is really appreciated. Cheers, Paul & Margaret

You mentioned Park City. Have you done Alta/Bird too?

Thanks G, we have had a wee visit there and loved it. We have now taken the (costly!) plunge and booked for Aspen. Hurrah. Can't wait. Thanks for all help.

I think you've made a good choice!  The number one complement I hear from international visitors to Aspen, is the lack of lift lines/ people on the hill.  I don't think you'll hear that much in Vail.

 

I didn't stand in a single lift line during Christmas week, but I did have to use the singles line once.

It was a good choice! We are loving Aspen so thanks for your earlier help.
It's even better since our luggage has arrived! 'Suit Yourself' were great in kitting us out quickly and well. Four Mountain Sports were also good and helpful too.

Ha, fantastic.
Did the scary bowl today. Took the cat though and did the second gate. Didn't really know what to expect or where best enter.., but did and loved it. Cheers
