Me and some friends of mine got into the sport of skiing a few years ago the winter of our senior year. We've only ever gone to the local skiing hill called hidden valley and the snow there is really more like a sheet of ice and none of us are very experienced skiers but we all want to take the step from local artificial snow to a legit resort experience. I've set the task of figuring out where some college kids can ski without going into debt on my self.
Problem is I'm almost completely ignorant to the places and times that are best for skiing, especially on a college kid budget!
So far were interested in Colorado because even though we're not familiar with the ski scene we all are pretty familiar with the state itself. But we're definitely not set on anything.
Any advice from the experts would be greatly appreciated. Planning for 2016-17 winter break or I've heard spring break is a good time too (we'd be aiming for SB 2017)
