First Time trip to ski

Myself and three other friends are looking to travel into Denver for the first time. We will be renting a car once we land in Denver to drive to our destination. We are looking to ski, with that being said we are all beginners, Ive skied(not much and the rest have never skied)

What are some suggestion in regards to locations to find a good ski resort? I've heard Breckenridge, Vail or Keystone? DO they ever have any or has anyone purchased groupons for skiing before?

Along with skiing we are looking to sight see and some nice restaurants and nightlife if possible(though not required)

You (the OP) are from PA? It is much cheaper to ski and take lessons in PA (east coast) than it is out west.

3 major ski areas to think about are Camelback, Seven Springs (Pittsburgh), and Smuggler's Notch (Vermont). You could visit one of these, take lessons, then plan your trip out west. That's exactly what I do when it comes to my family. I take the wife, daughter, and her boyfriend to the east coast. Last year it was Seven Springs, and this year we're going to Smuggs.

Then I'll take a trip out west by myself.
