Vail or Snowmass/Aspen March22nd-28 ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Trying to decide where to ski during the week of March 22nd-28th. Vail or Snowmass Aspen.

Historically, which place is safer as far as snow during that time?

Snow will be fine at either. Aspen will be much less crowded and rewards the skilled.

I noticed that it is much easier to get a place and flights for Aspen than Vail. Why is this?

I am bit concerned it is because of snow...

Vail just got dumped on the past week. Snowed 27" while my In-laws were out there... lucky bastards.

Vail is spendy because it's Vail. The place is know for great skiing. Now that they are getting snow again it will get crowded.

I have to admit that I don't trust ski resorts data. Have been burned before...

I know. Ski resorts out here add zeros to everything.

Just got back from Snowmass. They got 2' or more in the past week. We caught two bluebird days between storms. Very nice.

Aspen is always a better choice than Vail

Vail if you need valet parking.
