Kr$shan, just let me know if you plan a trip out to Colorado this year. Otherwise, it's just a little too short of notice to make this thing happen in a big fashion.
Steamboat is a fun mountain, but the snow can really be hit or miss there, especially when compared to Wolf Creek. The lower altitude makes it more susceptible to melting, rain, and such. The base sits at just under 7000 feet. Most Colorado resorts start at 8 or 9k ft. Then again when it snows there it gets after it like this season. The other thing is Steamboat is expensive. Probably $80 a day for lift tickets this year, and there are basically no deals for the 'Boat. On the flip side, the backcountry on Buffalo Pass has rather good access, and the town is one of the best ski towns out there. If you can't have fun going out in Steamboat, then you really aren't into the ski town vibe.
Wolf Creek sounds like a great idea, getting away from the mega resorts and hitting up a locally owned place is always better. I have rarely heard a bad word about the Wolf. I can attest to the fact that the pass is bad ass.
Some of the deepest steepest snow I have ridden in Colorado is back there.
The resort looks to get plenty of the same. Mid week, it is dead there.
Utah is the other idea I like a lot. You get a lot of bang for your traveling buck. All the resorts are close to SLC Airport. You just need to import your booze. Not a problem for those of us who would drive. As I mentioned I dig Pow Mow, Snobasin, and the surrounding bc there. Lot's of possibilities.
