keystone,copper,or winter park

My wife and I started snowboarding last year and just got back from Okemo Vermont which was pretty cool. Next year I would like to try CO.
What would you guys think of being the best place for intermediate snowboarders? We do blues and blacks fine at the places we have been to so far.

Forgot to add we live in VA. so not a whole bunch to choose from here.

I'd say Copper of those three. Tons of intermediate runs spread out over a good portion of the mountain.

Keystone would probably be next on the list, then Winterpark.

The main problem with Winterpark is that it's a bit confusing to get around compared to the other hills. There are plenty of intermediate runs there, but you have to take some time to get to know the mountain to get around effectively. Once you do it's great for sure.

I was checking plane tickets and can get them a little cheaper to park city. I have to wait to book for next year because they don't bookings this early.

I take it that you have been to winterpark? What did you not like about it that makes the other places better?

I think it has more to do with the fact that Winterpark is about an hours drive from Summit County where Keystone and Copper are located. Not very convenient.

For the record, I think Winterpark is the best resort on the Front Range for me. That is not always the case for everyone else.
