HELP ME HELP ME!!! Choosing a vacation destination
 
Alright folks I really hope I can get a lot of feedback on this one......I am planning a ski trip for my wife and I with some vouchers I have to fly to Denver for January. My wife and I have never been to Denver before, and my wife gets really whoozy from the high altitude areas.
So my question is..............Can someone suggest a mountain (cause I know there is several) that isnt too too far from the Denver airport (within 2 hour drive) and what I really need to know is can someone suggest to me a mountain that may not have as high of altitude as others? I know some of these Denver mountains are enormous and I have heard some aren't too bad so I am curious which ones would be best suitable for someone that has trouble in high altitude. Please any and all feedback would be very much appreciated. Thanks everyone.

If you must fly into Denver and you want a real Rocky Mountain ski experience you and her are going to have to suck it up and deal with the elevation. Winterpark and Keystone are probably your better/lowest bets. Can your vouchers get you to Salt Lake City? If so, many of the resorts within an hour drive of SLC have much lower elevations.....and IMHO a better ski experience.
