Default Good Resorts Near Major Airports

Hey, does anyone have some suggestions for good resorts near major airports?

Iíve only been to WISP on the ice coast but would like to plan some more trips this season to other places (Iím not really limited to where I can go Ė just anywhere in the U.S.). Would like a place near a major airport that I could fly into, take a taxi over to the resort to stay a few nights then hop back on the airplane.

Thanks!

Depends on what you consider "major airports" to me major airports are in major cities(like largest 1 or 2 cities in the entire state)

just of the top of my head , some of these places would be a pretty long expensive Taxi ride but doable via resort van\bus\shuttle or whatever

SLC
Reno
Bozeman
Denver

Basically an airport where the major airlines (Southwest, JetBlue, AirTran, etc.) fly in and out of. I'm looking for places where the taxi ride is no longer than like 30 minutes to the resort.

Thanks!

Good luck the only places you can get to from a major airport in 45 minutes or less is maybe the big\little cottonwood canyon resorts in Salt Lake City, everything else is at 1 to 3 hours drive.

They normally don't build major airports right next to large mountains or high altitude :-)

SLC or Reno are your best bets for major airports. Most big ski resorts have a small airport somewhere close but that's it.

30 minutes from a major airport... LOL!

Do you expect the airport to have a few rails setup for you to entertain yourself waiting on your taxi?

Hell, Denver itself barely qualifies as being within 30 minutes of a major airport. A good portion of the metro area isn't.

SLC is it.

If you're spending a few days, what's an hour or two each way going to matter? I wouldn't limit myself to places within 30 minutes of a major airport. You do realize that there are shuttle services that service pretty much any resort area within reasonable driving distance of an airport, right?
