I have lived in Reno, NV for the past 3 winters. I know at the Vail resorts they do a really good job of blasting for avalanches before they open the mountains. When the storms are really good, the top parts of the mountains are usually closed due to high winds.
As far as "back country" goes, just get a good powder board that is capable of being ridden on the groomed trails as well. I purchased the Ride Slack Country online for far less than they wanted in the stores and it seriously has been an amazing board.
Heavenly has some great places for tree's, Kirkwood does as well. The best part is that most of it is chair accessible (although to get to the really good stuff you will have to hike). If you do get hurt, there are usually a fair amount of people so screaming for help is a viable option and as long as you stay "in bounds" ski patrol will come to get you.
Tahoe doesn't really get the amount of snow Denver gets, but it is great during a good storm and the day after. Make sure you have chains and 4wd or the people at the road blocks will not let you pass.

Thanks for the speedy response guys-- much appreciated.
How does Tahoe backcountry compare to CO or Utah? Also, do you know if there are any clubs, groups or guides to link up with? I think I may like to get a taste of what's out here before investing in 3-day course.
