I am hoping that forum members can give me some advice. My brother is planning on visiting me here in the US for a skiing holiday. He is an enthusiastic intermediate skier. I have never skied before.
We are looking at a 10-day trip with accommodation and possibly some meals included. Our budget for the ten days is around $1 500 per person, although spending less would be preferable.
We'd be looking at a venue that caters to both beginners and intermediate skiers. We'd like something that isn't too terribly crowded, but that still has a few activities, friendly people and a good pub or two.
I visited Santa Fe earlier this year on business and really enjoyed it, so wouldn't mind taking the trip to New Mexico. Folks I've spoken to swear by Colorado, so it's a tough call. What are your recommendations?
We'd both be extremely grateful for any advice regarding venues, what the best time of year is (I've heard everything from early December to late February) and how to get the best bang for buck.
Most of all, being South Africans, we'd like to have a ton of fun - that's the most important.
