Hi everyone, I posted this in the Winter Sport forum but haven't received any responses, so thought I'd try my luck here:
My husband and I are going to New York for NYE, and on our way back to Australia want to stop off somewhere for five nights to ski (me) and snowboard (him).
Since we only have a short amount of time, we want somewhere that's reasonably close to a major airport, to avoid transfer times. We need somewhere with mainly intermediate level runs.
We would prefer an area with a good variety of dining options, including some fine dining choices; and around 4-4.5 star accoommdation (pref ski in/out if possible) with views.
We figure with five nights we'd probably get 3 day lift passes. Would prefer not to have to hire a car to get to/from the airport, but if that's what it comes to, we'll do it.
I had considered Vail because of it's proximity (kind of!) to Denver airport, but looks like Heavenly could be an option too...but I'm open to any suggestions.
Appreciate any opinions/suggestions/comments. Thanks!
