Crowds at Western Resorts Pres Weekend

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My kids actually have two days out of school for that holiday and maybe I can get the wife to allow them to miss an unexecused day. That could be a five day trip. We were at Park City/Deer Valley for MLK weekend and didn't think the crowds were bad at all...sundance was also going on that weekend and we heard that keeps the ski traffic down at those resorts.

When I say western resorts, most likely Colorado area. Family would be on greens and easier blues. Any favorite area for this type of terrain. Kids are 8 and 10.

Appreciate any advice...

MLK weekend is a real crowd producer at most Front Range Colorado resorts.

I suppose that Presidents weekend is just as bad.

Oh sorry, brain fart. I was texting with a co-worker and lost my train of thought. I found a widget that allows me to text instead of using the stupid phone keypad. Problem solved - I love Dashboard widgets. I'd rather call but Aussie accents can be hard too!

Yes! President's Weekend is a real crowd producer at most Front Range Colorado resorts. It was absolutely the craziest I've seen Winter Park since this past MLK weekend. It promises to be on track for the same crowds this year. Loveland was always packed Prez weekend too.

Maybe Buttermilk at Aspen, or Steamboat?

Things here in SLC get crazy! I would suggest looking at Sundance, Powder Mountain, Beaver, or Brian Head in Southern Utah.

Big Sky and Moonlight Basin will be packed (by their standards.) You might have to wait up to 3 minutes to get on some of the busier chairs.

I thought about Big Sky. How does it fit the green/easy blue skier? I am going to be using frequent flyer for airfare and could easily go to some more hard to get to places. Would consider Tahoe area also. Most interested in finding terrain that fit the family's need rather than a particular preference- Park City and Deer Valley was a good fit - just wanting to go somewhere different this time.

Appreciate the ideas.

Big Sky and Moonlight have a great variety of green and blue runs. It will take you 2 days to ski all the blue and green groomers at Big Sky.

Yes, please go to Big Sky. We don't want people showing up here on President's Day, tracking up our fresh pow.
