|Big Foot||My friends were telling me about a really nice hostel in Vail for something like $45 a night. I forget the name but I'm sure google would help you.|

|monkeytine||Try Groupon.com to find the best deals on hotels. I always stay with friends, so I don't know the hotels there too well, but most are going to be pretty nice and clean, even the cheaper ones.|

@monkeytime yep, that's y plan to get something like an SUV. I'll make my choice depending on the conditions...
Does anybody know a good place to stay in Winter park or Vail? I don't need a fancy 5 star hotel, but not a dirty flophouse either...

You listed the 2 best resorts (in my opinion) so you should enjoy yourself no matter what at either Vail or Winter Park. Winter Park tends to be less crowded, and is a little bit closer, but not closer enough to make it sway your decision. Just see which one has the most runs open when you're out here. Or try to go to both!
As others stated, you won't know how bad the roads are until you're literally driving on them. Sometimes it can snow and it be a "traction-y" snow that is easy to get around in, other times it can appear to be a harmless, light snow but be super slippery and dangerous. Try to rent something with all-wheel-drive if you can. Then you'll be fine.

|vertking||CDOT app looks like it could be helpful...|

x2 on the cdot mobile app.
best bet is to keep an eye on the weather and the resort pages. By then it could be real iffy or really rad.
isnowreport is also a good app, but by then may be pointless.

I use opensnow.com to monitor predicted snowfall. For road conditions I use the CDOT app on my phone which gives you details on delays and closures.
As far as where to ride I can't make any suggestions because I generally ride the wrong mountain at the wrong time.
