    Posted: Mar/26/2009 at 6:15am

I'm probably going to plan a vacation somewhere for next winter. I've never been riding anywhere except for Southern Vermont and NY.

What is the best place to go? Tahoe, Colorado, Utah, Whisler, Mt Tremblant?

 
I think I am too young to rent a car (will be 23 next winter), so I guess it would have to be somewhere that I could get transportation from an airport to a slopeside hotel, so no driving would be necessary.
 
I'd probably want to ride like 4 or 5 days.
 
Any recommendations for a great vacation spot? Especially one that won't be too too crowded and won't break the bank?

i went to CO this winter and it was cool, 4 nights/4lift tickets/flight + car for 5 ppl was 600 per person so i was happy with that but i heard a lot of good things about Tahoe...and that is going to be my next year trip

and i don't think you are too young to rent a car, you might end up paying extra 20 bucks a day though

I went to Utah for a week.  It's pretty cheap plus 4 resorts are really close by SLC so you can take public transportation up to those resorts.  Plus they have the superpass which for $58 a day or less if you buy multiple days is a good deal since it includes lift ticket and bus fare up to the slopes.

  1. Portland - Mt Hood: Love it.  Downtown Portland: love it
  2. Vancouver- three great local hills, lots of fun in the city, too.  Not a fan of Whistler
  3. Salt Lake City - lots of great mountains, epic on a pow day, so-so evenings
