Default Utah or Colorodo?

i hear that it's cheaper and just as awesome boarding in Utah as it is in Colorodo. I'm thinking about my first trip out west this year. Should i bother with Colorodo?

Utah is one of the easiest places to go ride for sure. Plentiful snow and quick easy access. Lift tickets are reasonably priced for a lot of the resorts and discount tickets are easy to find. So yeah, you get a lot of traveling bang for you buck there. Alcohol laws suck there, but they are better than in years past.

I've never been to either but I know people from both. Colorado people are much more enjoyable to be around.

I started with Colorado, and wound-up in Utah. Both are hit-miss for the snow, but Utah resorts are much easier to get to. I go Utah over Colorado.....or both! =)

opposite of what he said

CO is too crowded and while Mormons may be uptight, they're super nice. Utah is where it's at!

For short budget trips it's almost impossible to beat Utah and you generally have a better shot at an epic powder day

Utah. Specifically SLC.

Booze laws aren't as big a deal as people make out. Besides, the altitude will be kicking your ass so hard you're not going to need/want more than a drink or two.
