Depending on how much money you have to spend, Telluride is the best place to go...or Crested Butte as far as terrain goes. Telluride is 1:15, CB is 1:45, Powderhorn is 1:45 but ive never been there during ski season, Monarch is around 2 hours. These times all assume good weather and dry roads. It took me 3 hours to get to monarch last jan during a storm...great conditions though! Although I didn't get to see much of the mountain due to teaching my nephews how to ride. As far as terrain, you are gonna be better off at Telluride, CB or Monarch. If you can fork out the 92 bucks a day, go to Telluride. I have a pass there, and it is amazing. I will spend a few days riding CB too though.
