Typically I drop a grand on a trip out West, so I budget wise, 1500 bucks would be about it. I may be unrealistic here as well, but fomr what I've seen it looks like it could be done. I can get a flight to most places in E. Europe for 8-900 bucks.

Anyone have any experience in these areas and can lend some advice on great places to go with more advanced riding?

Thanks,

I hit up a season in Morzine- Avoriaz (france) 2 years ago. May be a bit more than what your budgeting but I definitely recommend it. Especially if you and all your buddies chuck in for a chalet for a week or 2.

Thanks for the suggestions...I checked out Bulgaria and it looks like a much better and even cheaper option that the Czech Repub. The resorts I saw there look pretty cool too. Not too much advanced riding but the Apres' scene could make up for that. I'm going to research Andorra this weekend.

Realistically, we would only plan on riding for 3 days. Figure a day each going and coming back. I know it's short, but so is life
