With a 4 year old: Fly into Tahoe, Salt Lake or Denver?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Tahoe would likely be at Diamond Peak
Salt Lake would likely be at Alta
Denver would likely be at Winter Park 


I'm an intermediate (but I'll blow through trees and stuff).  Wife is a scared intermediate.  Likes groomers and such.

The kid's never been on skis, so I'm guessing 1/2 days and then sledding/tubing/etc. is up his alley.  Likely in group classes at least for a half a day a couple days to get him a better foundation than we had.

My wife and I've been to SLC (Alta and Snowbird) once and enjoyed the heck out of Alta.  We've been to Winter Park in the summer and to Summit County in the winter (Breck, etc.).  We've never been to Tahoe (so that has it's attractions).  Our "home" mountain is Wolf Creek.

The cost is roughly the same for any of these places (the cheapest would be to drive to Wolf Creek).

Any recommendations?  I'm thinking a late January, early February trip.

Thanks!

I would go with SLC by virtue of the awesome skiing coupled with the ridiculously short drive from the airport to the slopes.

 I'm actually leaning that way too.  American just dropped the airfare prices to Salt Lake too... so a direct flight (vs. one with stops to Reno) with a 4 year old looks like it might be winning :)

Plus we can hit up the Pie again!

 American just dropped the price to Denver too (even lower than Salt Lake).  Decisions, decisions!
