Best Western Dest. for rowdy 20 somethings?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I currently am an intermediate skier in the east, and I ski almost all the trails available here without a problem, but I do find some challenging. Ive never been out west. I generally want more groomers but I want to try my hand at powder too.

What destinations are going to have the best nightlife and/or girls?

Whats not going to cost me a fortune?

Im thinking early march.

Whistler, and no where else really comes close. It'll cost you though. It's definitely not budget friendly though. Colorado is okay, but my experience is that there are ALOT of guys in all the bars... think a 4:1 ratio... minimum.

There are posters that say Lake Tahoe is good for the gambling aspect, but I've never been. In my single days, I pondered the Lake Tahoe option based in Reno for part of the trip to take in some University of Nevada basketball (they were highly ranked then), coupled with some campus bars and poker at the casinos. Not long after I became 'unsingle', and got married instead .

^^^^^ WB would be the correct answer. Legendary nightlife, and plenty of the fairer sex (and the best beer on the continent). The exchange is about $0.80 Kanadian to US, so there's an instant 20% discount. Fly in to Seattle to save big $ on airfare, and drive north to WB - about 4-4.5 hours. The Sea to Sky is getting closer to being finished, so the ride isn't the excitement it used to be.

Conditions haven't been great so far this year, but if you're looking for groomers and don't have a strong desire for off-piste what does it matter?

Do it - everything else will seem tame after that.

Whistler. Guarantees all of that, except the powder.

Hope you like Aussie girls.

true that. 2 lane highway, freezing rain, and landslides. Fun stuff.

Aspen's right up there with Whistler for nightlife/girls. Plus were having a way better season.

Last week: X Games + 30" new = game/set/match.

X-Games aside, I have a hard time believing Aspen could measure up to Whistler for nightlife (disclaimer: I've never been to Aspen). The influx of girls from Vancouver on weekends provides also provides for some extra content. I have a hard time believing Denver girls are driving past Summit County to Aspen.

I could be wrong though... any comments?

Girls don't drive in to Aspen, they fly, like the swallows to Capistrano.

They are both 1 or 2 in North America, which is better probably changes nightly. There is no lack of women in Aspen and the quality is top notch. I found my wife there.

Plus right now the skiing is fantastic, 39" in the last week.

I've been to both plenty of times.

I stand (or crawl) by Whistler, hands down (Up maybe).

Cougar Chutes ain't named cougar chutes for nothing, and depending on what your enjoyment type passion is, WB has more types by a long shot.

Whitefish, Montana has great skiing and a some great bars downtown. It might not be as posh as Whistler but you spend nearly as much money out drinking. Be careful, the locals are experts at both skiing and drinking.

And he's not talking about just the guys.

if you choose Whistler be prepared to pay big bucks. I was there last week and we paid $68 for two pitchers and a plate of nachos. Ouch!

For the value, nothing can beat Tahoe for a fly in tourist. If you guys are like my friends when I was in my early 20's, it was all about a cheap trip, booze and decent slopes.

I love Whistler, but no way is it cheap. Only 2 grocery stores server the entire town and they love to increase their prices. Not too many, if any, cheap eat places due to Whistler being very developed. Nice place, great village and mountain, but might not be what you're quite looking for.

On the other hand.......
South Lake Tahoe and Reno both offer very affordable hotels, cheap food and groceries (no ski town, rip you off pricing), abundance of affordable lift tickets around $55 (if you buy from someone in the San Francisco area), and casino nightlife (South Lake parties harder than Reno, more girls too).

For actual powder, you'll have to skip both Whistler and Tahoe and go to Colorado or Utah.
