Punchy kid following-up on the airport rails jab....nice. I can tell you about gambling in the Reno airport, too, but that is real!
If you're riding Wisp, then I can only Imagine you're from MD or WV. Never ridden Seven Springs or Snowshoe?
As for major Hubs, your best bet is SLC. A cab can get you into town for a nominal rate and there is a good Shuttle System that'll get you to Snowbird in the LCC or Brighton & Solitude in the BCC. You can get direct flights into SLC (which can't really be said about Jackson, Bozeman, or Reno) and you don't have to deal with the significant distance from the airport to the mtns like in Denver.
I don't know if you're old enough(25), but if you are just rent a car. The cost isn't that much more and the flexibility to go wherever you want is well worth it!
If you care to go to Canada, then Vancouver/Whistler should also be on your list.
