Really stumped on this years ski week out west, been just about everythere, someplaces more than once hoping I've overlooked a gem.
Group of 5, all at or approaching 60, upper intermediates, lower experts from Phila area, places we've really dug are Jackson Hole, Whistler Blackcomb, the Aspen area, the Front Range, Telluride, Tao's, Lake Tahoe resorts, Big Sky, Lake Louise area, Cottonwood Canyons (snowbird, alta etc). We like those destinations that offer several different hills, but guess we've hit all the multihill area's, hence my befuddlement on where next, time is running out on us to keep doing this.
considering Alaska, Aleyska, but the looong travel, single mountain with terrain that isn't that extensive for our skill level. ??
Crested Butte - the nearby cool town is a plus, wondering if we'd be bored by weeks end with the terrain. Currently our favorite option.
Steamboat - another with a cool town, heard some bad reports about the terrain that ski's much smaller than their vertical.
Mammoth? Wonder if bad snow is a factor, plus old farts might not mesh with the LA surfer vibe.
Seattle Cascade resorts? Fog and wet snow are concerns, any multi hill base camps?
I'd consider the Alps but everybody will then have to bring their wives for a trip like that.
Thoughts welcome, thanks.
