I just finished my fall session in grad school and decided that a 10 day ski trip after new years sounds like a great way to spend a part of my break. I haven't been to many resorts out west, so I'm interested in hearing what you guys have to say. I'm pretty much unrestricted and looking to hit at least 2 different mountains. The one limitation is that I have to start my trip in Vail, CO. So the question is - where would you go? I've only skied Vail (it's where my gear is) and BC so I'll likely spend a day or two there. My skill level is somewhere between advanced and expert, if that makes any sense, and I love to adventure into the bowls/backcountry.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations!!
