I don't know the Utah deals for boarding, but I doubt it can compare with CO. The Epic Pass is just a sweet deal; your talking five resorts in CO, and three in CA. Also, the nightlife is pretty good.

epicpass.com -you should check it out

That's changing this weekend. Don't base your trips off of early season snow reports...

Colorado is better than Utah because it's not Utah. This has nothing to do with the snow and mountains.

I don't think I could live in Utah, visit yes. In Colorado we are lenient on fun stuff like marijuana. It's the opposite in Utah. Colorado is more of a free place. We may have decriminalization pass for the entire state, so Utah can suck it.

An epic pass does cover a lot of good mountains. I hope Colorado gets snow soon.

I agree also, while I don't smoke I do think that Colorado is more laid back. Plus I'm not a fan of a state that is so blatantly controlled by a religious sect.

How much money do you have to spend on transportation? Where do your friends live in relation to the slopes?

if you're planning to visit a lot of other locales in the USA (places with and without ski slopes) then you will have noticeably cheaper airfare flying to the eastern portion of the US from Denver.

Snowboarding is cool and everything, but if you have the cash, then you should take a few days to visit New York City, Washington D.C. or any of the other touristy spots in this hemisphere.
