I am looking to visit Colorado next week (12-14th or 17-19th) and not sure which resorts would be better. Me and my wife both ski Blue runs here in WA (Stevens pass and Crystal), she prefers sticking to the groomed runs but I can handle un-groomed blue slopes as well.
In order of priority we prefer ..
1. Good snow with grooming
2. Less crowd (preferably lift lines of less than 10mins wait)
3. Lodging near the resort (shuttle access or walk able)
