At that cost, snowboarding wouldn't be as enjoyable as you might have hoped.

I have 120 hours of vacation time and need to use 60 at minimum lol

You can plan a vail trip for 600-700 with air fare.

Check expedia mountain packages. Only thing that sucks is the least expensive one leave u in denver which is pretty far from Vail.

Interested in what you choose, because IDK where to go either

The vail resorts will be packed at this time. I'm not telling you not to go to them, but understand that long lift lines are going to happen during that part of the year.

I would say visit Vail or wherever you want to go. Then spend some days at Loveland, Beaver Creek, or Copper Mtn. These places are going to be less crowded during Christmas because they are a little out of the way and people tend to spend all their time at Vail, Beck, and Keystone. I'm sure you will have a great time wherever you go but if you don't like crowds, go to the ones I suggested.

I'm hearing the snow may not be great this time of the year?

Is this to our standards (east) or theirs (West) lol

Its by west standards. I'm sure it'll be better than anything on the ice coast at that point. Though really our season is best by February. That's when things really start to get interesting. Though it really depends on the season.

Durango or Monarch. or CB or Tride.

Vail resorts are for taking advantage of the Epic pass. Dodge the scene.
