So I have been trying to plan a ski trip from Dec 26th 2015 - Jan 2nd 2016. I live near the poconos and ski east coast ice all winter. Most trips I take are to the north east, Killington and such but want to go somewhere more special this year.
I am on a budget and need to do this with that in mind, I would need to be around $3500 for the hotel/Airfare/lift tickets. I would love a ski in/out with lots of vertical and challenging terrain. This is for me and my 15 year old son who has been skiing better then me anymore. Spent two weeks in July skiing in Virgina on snowflex.
I have been looking at Colorado resorts, like Aspen Snowmass. Utah like Alta, Wyoming like Jacksons Hole, and Canada like Whistler.
Whistler has some good deals for early buys and looks promising, but getting there from Philadlphia looks difficult?
Is there other options I am missing?
