So I am going back to school in Oklahoma on Tuesday and I am looking at doing a 3 day ski trip to colorado or New Mexico (NOT UTAH, I feel its a bit to far of a flight for a 3 day weekend).
My level in intermediate, pretty comfortable on all blues at Jay Peak Vermont
I will fly out Friday afternoon (maybe skip a afternoon class). Ski Saturday and Sunday. Leave Monday late morning.
I have all my own stuff but I am not sure which slope to go to. My mother went to Vail about 25 yrs ago so of course that is my idea. She feels that area might not be good for me due to the class of people who go there (too rich for my blood). The only other place would be breck, A Basin. Could you guys point me into maybe a different slope or give opinions?
I am 20 and willing to pay the young driver fee but as of now I KNOW enterprise at denver airport will NOT rent cars to 19 yr olds (long story, ended up getting the car through a national business contract). Are there resorts/ hotels that will do airport pickup and even as far as driving you to and from the mountain?
I am sort of planning a loose $1000 budget for lift ticket, flights, hotel, rental car. Do it sound feasible?
