Just got the approval for my annual leave this year... we are planing to ski the last week of March but can't decided where to go. We have never skied in the US before (but we've traveled there quite a few times) so we have no idea what's the best choice that time of the season.
What we love are perfectly groomed and non-crowded runs (I know things are quite different here in Europe ), old lifts (t-bars, Riblet or Yan doubles, Pomas, etc.) and laid-back ski areas. But we would also try some guided backcountry skiing.
I know that we can't make any plans regarding the weather. But as this trip involves a long, expensive flight from Europe, I would like to make sure that we have the best time possible (and see ski areas that are different to what we have here).
Looks like SLC would be a good start for daily trips, but ski areas in Colorado might be more interesting in terms of lifts, views, etc. (not sure if the smaller ones are still open at that time).
