My partner and I were looking at coming to North America for a ski holiday in early Jan and were unsure where would be the best place to go.
I understand that all resorts should be up and running at that point be we are looking for the resort with the best chance of off piste skiing and powder.
We are both advanced skiers and would prefer to not be restricted to groomed trails.
We were planning on going to Telluride however I'm concerned that it doesnt get enough snow early in the season.
Ideally the resort would also have a good town (one of the reasons we initially love the idea of Telluride compared to say snowbird/alta)
Any suggestions would be helpful!
