Tahoe, Park City, or Vail??

Been to Breckenridge twice and thought it was a good time. Could walk to the lifts and the main town area. Out of Tahoe, Park City, and Vail, which has the best boarding and nightlife scene??
Thanks.

For night life, Tahoe South Shore. Unfortunately Heavenly is the only walk to resort right there, and it's rather mediocre by Tahoe standards. Kirkwood is fantastic, Sierra is a fun mountain. If you stay North Shore, you would have a lot more optionsboarding wise, but the night life there isn't nearly as good. It's still fun over there. Nothing is really centralized though unlike the South Shore minus it's drawbacks. Squaw Valley is world class, Alpine and Sugar Bowl, may not quite make the "world class" mark but are no slouches either.

Vail, if you stay in the village or Loinshead puts you right there in terms of nightlife and things to do. The riding at Vail is pretty much all alike. Same 'ol blue Vail.

Park City, don't really know. Supposed to be a good scene there. None of the ski areas are really Utah "showcase resorts" but can be decent enough.

Out of all of those i would go to Tahoe and maybe rent car so you can try out all the different places. I heard Kirkwood gets dumped with snow so make sure to check it out. I also heard vail has some nice back bowls.

Utah sucks. Don't expect a good nightlife and there are ugly girls here. Go to Vail.

if you are into freestyle, go park city. My friend is 2 comps away from being selected to go there for a Junior Olympic comp. He has done loads of research and stuff on it and apparently the park (hence the name) is just insane.

Methinks you are trollin. Because Park City has been a blast every time I've gone (once a year past 3 years). 90% of the chicks arn't local anyways so who cares? The only stupid part is I hate how you can only have A shot and A beer drink on you at any time. And they always check people for orders. Stupid..just let me buy 6 shots and walk the fuck away.

Kill said it. Walk-to and Great nightlife are hard to couple. SLT is a blast, but Heavenly is just ok. Park City is also a blast, but the resort is just ok. Vail offers a slight blend of both, but Vail nightlife isn't crazy. I'd go with SLT. Heavenly is fun and you can catch a decent shuttle to Kirkwood for like 15 or 20 bucks.
