Looks like you're not gonna be going to Jackson Hole because you're looking for night life in addition to good snow and it's understandable cuz you're young and have the need to party too . But, for those who plan to visit JH, be sure to get up to Grand Targhee too, which is about 80 mins away. It's gotta be my favorite mountain of all that I've boarded at (Whistler/Blackcomb, Mammoth, Powder Mountain, Solitude, Brighton, Snowbird, PMCR, and Aspen/Snowmass). You get great powder without the crowd. And it's big enough that you can easily find wide open untracked areas.
Thank you, thats what I have mostly been doing using expedia and travelocity. Hoping to have my trip all ready to go by next week.

slowmkv Well unfortanetly things arent looking to good for Whistler due to the fact of a friend not getting a passport. Currently looking at other resorts still havent decided where to go. Jackson is still on the list but looking into other options as we do want some kind of nightlife after riding. Whats the best way to book these trips any websites or do you guys use an agent? I want to pay for everything at once. (Flight, stay, ground transportation, and lift tickets). One of our buddies recently moved out to CO so we were looking into visiting him, so Breckenridge is on top of the list now.

LOL well at this point doesnt look like we are leaving the states anyway. Due to someone being lazy and not getting a passport in time to book a trip.

Whistler is the mother of all resorts. Im also from the east and if u want to go to whistler, then i highly recommend staying for AT LEAST a week. 5-6hr flight PLUS another 3hr bus trip from the airport to whistler village. Whistler is super expensive. One should def have whistler on his bucket list after a year of saving up lol
Sorry man just saw your post now, my buddies are so indecisive and havent made up their mind yet. But the biggest issue we have is my one buddy is having trouble renewing his passport ( more or less being lazy). So it looks like we will be heading somewhere in the US for this trip. I would of definitely liked to set something up but we arent heading anywhere until late February. But definitely let me know how Jackson is!!

Definitely please do not go...you will shit your pantz, you will not be able to see and hurt yourself, you will have a shitty time on your little banana or a big pow board because you don't know were to go. Besides you have already missed the dumps and the utard grade fluff. Go to JH or whistler....thank you.

kmhath Picking between Whistler and Jackson is a nice problem to have. I still haven't visited J-Hole, but its quality is legendary. I spent nine days at Whistler in 2011 and the place blew my mind. Exploring it was a lot of fun and I spent most days on Blackcomb. Like any big mountain, you need to talk to the locals and learn about the dangers; lots of places to cliff out if you like to hike to steeper terrain. Its biggest issue, in my opinion, is not the crowds or price but the reliability of quality powder. Whistler can get great snow but they also suffer from a lot of heavy/wet snows like CA and WA... not that light powder you'll find in Utah or WY.

I'm in the same boat. I had to send away for a copy of my birth cert, so I'm waiting for that. THEN I can apply for passport and wait for THAT.
