Direct Link To This Post Topic: Cheap, Good Mountains
    Posted: Nov/15/2011 at 4:43am
I'm looking to go on a trip to either Colorado or New Mexico with a bunch of people from my college. What they're looking for is somewhere we can go that's cheap, but what I'm looking for is someplace will have good snow in January, when we go. I know Colorado is considered to be the place to go but I've heard New Mexico is cheaper but I'm hesitant on snow conditions in New Mexico. I really don't want to be somewhere that's icy. We are mostly looking for cheaper lift tickets than accommodations because we're thinking we could maybe stay at a church. Sorry if this is dumb and has been answered before but I didn't see any search option and I've never been riding in the US, only Switzerland during study abroad.

I'd like to know this as well.
But what about Utah?  BrianHead in southern Utah is cheap and has great snow.

Steamboat has offered group deals in the past. Wolf creek has cheapish tickets and great snow. Most I70 resorts are pricey.   

If it was me. Wolf creek
Come on ride the train

Wolf Creek, Monarch, Loveland, and Durango Mountain are all areas that have reasonably (cheaper) priced lift tickets in Colorado.  Most of the big guys are near or over $100 a day in Colorado.

Utah has better deals when buying passes by the day.  You can usually find discount tickets at shops and such in the area.  Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, Brighton, Solitude, and others often sell discounted tickets in their nearby respective (Ogden, Salt Lake) cities.

If it was up to me it would be either Loveland or Wolf Creek. Their tickets are priced around $60 and they both the best snow conditions so far. WC is far ahead of the game right now though. They have had over 100" so far. I've ridden 3 times this season already and it's better than Keystone in March...

Keystone isn't a fair comparison. It has some of the worst snow in Colorado. Wolf creek gets around 400"

Thanks for the suggestions so far. These will give us a good starting point of places to consider. Utah is probably out of the question as we will be coming from Manhattan, KS.
