My GF and I are intermediate snowboarders, we want to rent a place in CO for the month of Feb 2016 to ride as much as possible. We've only been to CO once, stayed in Frisco and rode in copper, keystone & A-basin (with copper being our definite favorite). Looking for input on where to stay. Buying an Epic pass & staying in Frisco is an option but then we'd be 20-25min from any ski area which wouldnt be ideal if we were riding most days (but also have the option of multiple places). Also found a few rentals right on Copper, but concerned about getting groceries, etc. We are not sure if we will have a car w/ us or not yet.
What about snowmass or Vail?
Our main concerns are:
- Ease of getting on the slopes
- Ease of getting groceries
- Less lift lines
- Do not care about night life / apres ski
We would likely be having some friends come and go throughout the month as well.
Any input would be much appreciated!! Thanks.
