tired of the same ol colorado

hey everyone. my buddies and i have been going to keystone/breck/vail/copper/winter park for over 10 years now. we are wanting to try someplace new. what would you recommend? we don't care about staying in a nice place or shopping. we are there to ride, and drink of course. lol. anyway, we're early 30's, all married and don't get too crazy. We like fast groomers, some trees and powder. We don't ride park much anymore. we were thinking southwest colorado or park city. maybe tahoe. thoughts on any of these would be appreciated. anywhere other than colorado we will fly so opinions on places close to the mountain would be cool. thanks.

Jackson has an incredible vibe. Great mountain too.

If you are going to stick with Colorado, Steamboat honestly sounds like the best fit for you. Arguably the best tree skiing in the state.

A$pen is awesome too. A bit more expensive. Telluride would be a good choice. Crested Butte would round out the list. Good villages at all these places for when you are done, and lots of mountainside accomodations.

For elsewhere, Salt Lake is great. Get a rental car and stay on the east side of SLC. Either close to I80 or near the cottonwoods in Sandy.

Big Sky or Jackson would also be great and are more of the full package. Tahoe too.
