Place to ride out west with no lift lines? Utah? Colorado?

I am looking for a place that is just strictly for riding, not looking for night life. Prefer the most powder I can get. Any ideas? I just got back from whistler but I want to know good spots in the US. Thanks

Anywhere not near SLC, Denver, or Summit County. People in CO and UT follow the pow, so sometimes places out of the way get packed when there is snow.

You could check out Solitude in Utah? No lift lines at all when I was there, and pretty great snow. Didn't snow at all for the week before I was there, yet parts of Honeycomb Canyon and nearby backcountry areas still had untouched powder. Not as much vertical as other places, but I loved it.

As far as lift lines go, I was amazed at how short the lines were in Telluride (when there was even a line present at all). We were there during their 40th anniversary celebration and I never had more than 3 groups in front of me in line, most of the time it was skate right up. Out of 5 days riding we had one pow day and no trouble finding stashes, even ski patrol gave us some tips. Not much in terms of nightlife either but friendly local bars when the lifts closed.

Take Wrath's advice. Definitely some pow to be found and not a single line to wait in.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I'm a little biased because it's the only place I've really been, but Wolf Creek has the most snow in Colorado, and the Alberta Lift never has lines.
