My wife and I are planning a ski trip to Colorado in mid-December. I'm a pretty decent skier, but I've never skied out west. My wife is beginner - intermediate. She's also never been on a ski trip before (she's a beach resort or cruise person) and I'm trying to get her hooked. ;)
We're looking at going to Vail or Breckenridge.
Does anyone have any advice on picking one or the other based on my wife's ability level and preference for the resort atmosphere?
Also, what is the best way to book a ski trip to Colorado? Is the package the way to go? Or is it better to book flight, transfer, and stay seperately? Do you prefer to stay at a hotel or privately owned rental unit? What about bringing our skis vs. rentals?
Thanks for your input.
