After some recommendations from this site, i have decided to take my girlfriend to Steamboat. We are coming from australia and can only get there in the first week of jan and apparently the snow is most reliable their so early in the season.
Im just cant stop thinking about telluride though. It sound like the villages there are more quaint than the big city of steamboat and the skiing appears more challenging (i am mindful that she is still an improving intermediate though).
Can anyone give me some advice re tellurides snow early in the season, its suitability for an intermediate and its proximity from denver in comparison to steamboat.
I think i just really want to hit telluride, it sounds amazing.
Thanks in advance
