Planning a trip to Utah or Colorado

Whats up guys. Im new to this forum but not to boarding. Im planning a trip the 2nd week in Feb to either Utah or Colorado and need some advise on where to stay and where to go. Im going with only 3-4 of my boys. Ive heard alot of good things about Powder Mountain and was leaning towards that cause i heard it wasnt a crowded area. Any advice would be great. Looking to go to one of the best Mountain but not a crowded one. Thanks for the help

Interesting....

Now their is a nice place right in Eden called the red moose lodge. I loved it there, they had a great continental breakfast, is real close to Pow Mow ,snowbasin and Wolf Mountain which is a tiny little spit right dead smack of the mountain behind the red moose lodge. People were very friendly and it wasnt all that expensive

It looks like Wolf Creek properties finally took it over. They are the property company that owns half the mountainside.
thank you. im gonna look into this place. it looks good from what ive seen already. did you rent a car while you were there also??

Are you against smaller CO resorts such as Aspen, Telluride, Crested Butte? If you want something with low traffic I would def stay out of Summit County Colorado.... Which would be Vail, Keystone, Copper, Breck. Beaver Creek is rad though, and less traffic then most in Summit County.

I hear Wolf Creek CO is the shit, but I've yet to go.

Aspen is not smaller, but it is pretty 'effin sweet. If you can throw the cash, it's hands down one of the most fun places to hit.

Powder Mountain is a pretty good bang for you buck mountain to hit. Big, yet mom and pop, tickets are cheaper, and it's fairly close to Salt Lake City. Plus you have Snobasin nearby, which terrain wise kicks all sorts of butt over Pow Mow. I liked them both, but when I was in Utah last year, I only went to Snobasin. I think that says something...
