I just returned from the PSIA Snow Pro Jam. I booked a lodging package through our very own Cosby Travel Pro. http://www.epicski.com/wiki/cosby-travel-pro
The owner, Arleta Cosby, is a Certified PSIA Instructor as well as Travel Professional - also a pretty cool and nice lady.
For $235 I stayed in a very nice condo with 3 other skiers. 5 nights of lodging. The package also included a welcome party/dinner which was an incredible spread of free food and beverages. Factoring in the meal and drinks, that's just a little more then $40/night - including taxes. Cheaper then a motel - and right at the mountain!
Arleta was always available to help when needed.
Being the kind of person who shops for my own deals on the internet, I realized that sometimes leaving things in the hands of a seasoned pro is worthwhile.
Plus her being "one of us" adds a certain intangible aspect to the whole thing.
