we (2 adults and 2 kids - 9 and 11, blue - easy black skiers) are planning a trip to CO for 2 weeks from ~ 18th of December this year.
The plan currently is either 2 weeks in Snowmass or the first in Vail and the second in Snowmass. We are hoping xmas - new year in Snowmass might be a little better than in the paces closer to Denver - not sure how true this is and have tried to avoid summit county for this reason as well as it seems we could probably do things cheaper there overall. I am very keen to minimise the 'hassle' - stay as close to ski in / out as much as possible, not bother getting a car etc.
Any thoughts on these plans welcome - is this a sensible plan for this time of year? We have considered some of the further away places like Steamboat but I am keen to cover at least a couple of places in the 2 weeks and not have too far to travel in between,
