If you're doing the Collective, I suggest grabbing one of the Epics. I say go balls-in and make it to Tahoe. Mountain Collective + Epic Pass will get you riding at 12 resorts for about 1100 bones. Sounds big, but it is an investment of a lifetime. Also, think about buying a few geiggerigs......water packs that have a Skullcandy Passport that provides discounted or free lift tickets.

Craigslist was my route for places to crash. I can suggest more later...time to get to work.

Anyone with experience know of the best bang-for-the-buck area to go to? We are not looking to drop a ton of money on lodging and lift tickets.

Google maps says Denver is 26 hours from New Jersey, and that Jackson Hole and SLC are 33 and 32 hours, respectively. Since we are driving so far, the extra 6-7 hours to get to a "better" area wouldn't be an issue.

Also, any knowledge of a multi-mountain pass that can be used at more than one mountain in an area? I was looking at this: Liftopia - Resort Details


Any input would be appreciated.

Best time to go? Late Feb-into March. The base is good, the temps are usually reliable, and the snow often happens.
Thank you for the suggestions. I will look them up right now. Appreciate it
