CO winter break vacation?

Hey my family and some extended family are looking to take a trip up to CO for the 2011 winter break (about a week or so). I was wondering if anyone has any tips on where to go. We would want a slope side lodge because we will be housing 9 or more people. Also we are mostly boarders, some less experienced than others. The parks are not as big of a factor as just a nice place to board as a big family. Any suggestions on places to stay and mountains to hit would be appreciated. We just want a place where the beginners will be as entertained as the more advanced boarders in the family. Thanks

I am not going at spring break I am going during winter break as stated. I know it will be packed at most places so I will have to schedule this way in advance.

Go to Steamboat, Winterpark, or Telluride and get yourself away from the bigger destination areas that'll save you a headache.

Winterpark is actually just about as busy as the Summit county (Breck, Keystone, Copper, etc...) spots. It's a great mountain but for less traveled spots, it's not going to be like Steamboat or Telluride. I'd also suggest Crested Butte and Aspen along with the T-Ride and Steamboat rec's.
