new traveller questions
 
I lived in Ontario my entire life and always snowboarded locally or short trips to Montreal/Banff. I just moved to Florida and want to continue the sport so I plan on doing a bunch of trips this year. I haven't done any real travelling like other people on this board so I have some beginner questions.

Since I will be travelling alot what is the best choice for lift tickets, I thought I remember Colorado having a season pass to a number of mountains? If so, anyone know the name of that pass? Do any other areas offer a similar pass?

I like to have my own kitchen so most hotels are out, is vrbo the best option for renting a property?

Any other tips or advice to make frequent travelling more economical? I thinking I may be able to save some money flying southwest within the US?

The colorado pass to the Vail owned resorts is the Epic Season pass - you'll find info about it at snow.com.
I think it's a bit late in the year to buy the pass - but still may be OK.

Where is the best place to base in Colorado if one wants to check out a bunch of different mountains?

i'm thinkin dillon - but i'm not a local - so just my guess - puts you kinda on the east side of summit county - but probably relatively better pricing, esp compared to being in the resort towns.

I'd stay in breck, keystone or vail. Be close to at least one mountain and make a short day trip of the others. If your really set on being more "central" then main street frisco is about as close as that gets.

Mind sharing? VRBO drives me nuts sometimes shifting through the lists.
