Ski/Snowboard Packages to Colorado

Hello!

I'm a bit new here and I'm not sure if this is in the right category, but I hope that I don't cause too much of an inconvenience for doing this.

I'm a snowboard enthusiast, however I've never been out west and currently my boss would like me to find a ski package to Colorado that includes the Lodging, the Flight and Lift tickets.

Typically, I do the whole bed and breakfast thing as I like to be away from resort to experience more of the town I'm in and besides free breakfast! So I'm not really used to this level of searching. I've look a few places like ski.com or skiorganizers.com, but I don't think I'm doing the search right or something.

So, the trip is for one adult and his four sons, does any one have any help suggestions. It doesn't necessarily HAVE to be in Colorado, but anywhere around Arkansas is fine as that is where my boss lives.

Thank you in advance for any helpful advice!

You know Arkansas isn't near Colorado, or mountains, for that matter, right?

You may be a B & B kind of girl, but for a dad and his 4 sons? No, scrap the B & B idea....get these guys a hotel or something that has a hottub or pool. Got to expedia or something like that. Has he given you a blank check or are there price restrictions? Is he looking to be going soon or later in the season? Does he want a town experience or a killer mountain with good snow? Breckenridge Colorado has a great little town, but the snowfall has been limited this year (maybe 60 inches). Snowbird, Utah or Kirkwood, California have little to speak of for a town, but the mountains are Killer and have gotten quite a good bit of snow. (over 100 inches)

I live in SLC now, but used to live in CO for about 4 years. Is there any type of budget limitation? Does your boss like to stay in really luxurious hotels or will he want to save as much money as possible? What type of snowboarding/skiing does he do? Is extremely nice terrain important or will he enjoy the "resort" experience more?

If you want, PM me with more details and I'll point you in the right direction. Cheers!

me and my buds booked our trip to vail through expedia. it has flights, hotel, shuttles to and from the airport/hotel, and lift tickets. we searched forever and was never able to find anything cheaper. like they said i dont know if you have price restrictions but expedia offfers really nice places in vail but we just went for the holiday inn. im sure they offer other resorts too but expedia bundles it all together and made it really easy to book.
