Well, traveling to a resort is never going to be cheap. Especially when you are throwing in that you want a good party scene. The best party scenes are going to be Whistler, Aspen, and South Lake Tahoe. Pretty much in that order. All other places fall in behind those spots. Summit County/Vail in Colorado have alright scenes that can range from going off to completely dead. Though you can get an Epic Pass for just over $500, and that is a season pass good for Vail, Breck, ABasin, Keystone, Beaver Creek, and Heavenly in California. For a two week stay, you'd get your money's worth out of the pass. So that could save you quite a bit on riding the lifts. All the all other charges are going to be similar to Whistler.
