Looks like I'm going to have the chance to ski the week after Easter, which is Apr 4 this season. I'll certainly watch the conditions and delay decision as late as possible due to the timing at end of season, but figure it's never too early to ask for opinions. I've narrowed my choices to these two because I've never been to either, and they're both on my bucket list. I've done 1/2 dozen areas in both UT and CO (some multiple times), so please hold back on suggestions for other UT/CO resorts. I might consider Jackson Hole or Alyeska.
Skiing: Age and creaky knees dictate that although I'll challenge myself 2-3 runs a day I'm mostly interested in blue cruisers and groomed blacks. "Pillow" bumps and boot top/knee deep powder are fun, but VW sized bumps and hike-to waist deep powder aren't in the cards anymore. While I'd want to hit Ajax or Squaw to be able to say I've been there, realistically I figure I'd likely focus on Snowmass or Northstar.
Accommodations/nightlife: Ideally I'd want to be within walking distance of skiing and same distance to bars/restaurants, but 10-15 minutes is OK. Condo not necessary, hotel room OK. I'm pretty cheap when it comes to housing, but I don't see myself bunking in a dorm. If choice is necessary, priority is proximity to food/drink - 20 minutes or more at night always seem much farther than in the AM. Research I've done so far indicates budget would allow housing in Aspen village at that time of year, and Truckee housing cost seems attractive. Not much interest in late-night clubbing, friendly shot-and-beer bar after skiing and burger/pasta menus are more my style (probably spring for a good steak once during the trip)
Travel considerations: I'm located in southern NJ, so fly from PHL, Denver airfare generally much less than Reno. I get pretty good car rental discount, so likely to have a car.
All thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated, thanks in advance.
