I'm curious about heading elsewhere, but sort of nervous about ability level. I'm an athletic guy (former Marine) and while I'm risk shy, I'm not averse to a good time. I can do all the blue runs as well as a couple black runs, but they're all Midwest so I know that doesn't mean much other than I'm ready to go green in the West or East. So where do I go?
I'm a student so money is tight. I will likely be going next year over Christmas or Spring Break (late March here). I'm thinking Bridger Bowl with my brother and a couple other guys, or Steamboat Springs if I go on my own, but where would you all advise? I'm a laid back guy, a bar is good enough for apres, and I like the feel of the west...I really enjoyed South Dakota and Wyoming when I was out there on my Harley. I'll probably drive but nonstop flights are a possibility, as I am in Chicago.
Thanks in advance for all your advice!
