Crazy ski trip, need help!
Hi there! Help and advice greatly appreciated!
Family of 4, "kids" 17 and 20, 3 of us intermediate downhill skiers. Hubby does not do downhill skiing but he likes Xcountry, tubing, sledding, etc. Driving from Omaha, NE.
Planning 4 - 5 day ski trip for upcoming season. Have skied Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, Steamboat and willing to consider others. I like Steamboat a lot, but it's a long, long drive! Prefer to stay within a 12 hour drive time from Omaha, NE.
Last trip 2 years ago we got lucky- planned a T-Day trip to Copper and had great snow and cheap digs, but I'm worried about taking chances with the snow. again. Also want tubing, sledding, gondola or some such thing for hubby.
I find all the lodging choices & prices very confusing, with rates changing thru the season.
I'd love to hear suggestions on how to get the best lodging and lift ticket deals during a time of the season when there should be good snow- T- Day is awesome for a lot of reasons; I'd love to hear how often there is good snow mid to late Nov.
Also, I know that the "good snow" times is a little different at each ski resort / town, but which times at which resorts?
.We need a 2 Bedrm or a 1 bdrm w loft condo. I know it's cheaper away from the lifts, but it is nice to be able to walk to lifts. Must have outdoor hot tub (private not necessary) as one of the best things is sitting in the hot tub when its snowing!!!
Thanks gobs for reading and replying!!!
