The annual boardering trip I'm planning is coming up, and with the wifes spring break being the first week in april, I'm looking at where to go.
Places I've been:
2014 Vail/Beaver Creek/Breckenridge (good year :-) )
2012 - Steamboat?
2011 - whistler
2010 - steamboat
2009 - Beaver Creek
I think that covers it all.
Initial airfare to Seattle was a bunch, but with some miles I can get from MKE and back for ~300 bucks, + car rental.
Denver - I'd probably drive this year, gas being cheap. and going to colordao I have to spend a night at a lower elevation (aka denver) before going higher for my wife to not have headaches.
Back to story,
So first thought was CO resort, I'm a snowboarder so WP is out from what I've read, steamboat its really late, and wife isnt that big a fan.
Vail I like, because I normal take lessons, and there 3 day pack is a good deal.
I was thinking of Telluride but I'm pretty sure they close that weekend.
So then possibly Aspen/snowmass area for something new.
Or Keystone since I hear they have good blues.
Wife liked Whistler and theres stuff around we could go see that we missed last time.
What I'm looking for, good blues to progress to blacks, some easy trees to get better on, and a decent area for after riding/hanging out.
Dont know if it would be too late for Whistler...
