Looking for a trip?

Planning a trip for next year during mid January and am not sure where I want to go. I am not very limited, anywhere in North America (besides Alaska). I just want a somewhat big resort that isn't like Park City or Northstar crowded and has definite powder runs. Just some mellow tree runs or sidecountry type of thing. Just want to ride some real powder. Any help would be great. Would be willing to pay anywhere up to 1,200.

Idaho, Wyoming, Montana? Seems like some mellow powder places. Type of terrain I am looking for.

Check in to Montana. I have never been, but I think that is where we will end up this year. Flights are actually somewhat reasonable in to Bozeman ($400 from Detroit, probably a little more from NY).

If you're down with doing some trekking, fly in to Spokane and rent a car, you can be in BC interior in ~3 hours like Red Mountain, etc. again it's on my bucket list but never been, but I hear things like "tits deep powder" and "trees for days"...

Yah, I like the idea but I've never even been anywhere near a REAL resort, so I just want an in bounds powder runs. I don't care if I have to hike a little. I am really liking Revelstoke but I'm not to sure about the amount of in bounds treeless powder runs.

Looking at Targhee right now and wow. Looks like exactly what I'm looking for and it is in the U.S.

I hear Revy is steep, and in terms of layout it's really more of a skiers' resort, but like I said I've never been.

You would like Targhee I think. It's got plenty of what you're looking for. When we were there, lodging options near Targhee were pretty sparse unless you stay at the resort which will buttrape your $1200 budget, you'd probably have to stay in/near Jackson which is ~60 miles away unless someone else can shed some local knowledge.

I guess you mean off-piste and not sidecountry right? If you like trees PC has tons of aspens as well as steamboat. How many people are going?

Shit, I can't rent a car either (under 21). I'm planning on like a three day trip.

Two or three including me. I have literally no powder knowledge so idk what that means. I just want some light tree powder, or none if possible in bounds. Nothing real steep or challenging. I thought about Jackson Hole but remembered I wasn't rich and I don't want a tourist resort.

If you're willing to try out something different (under the radar), you might want to check out Schweitzer at the tip of Idaho. 2900 acres, a wide variety of terrain difficulty, massive amounts of tree riding and in-bounds off piste, and almost non-existent lines. The thing I love most about this mountain is that while it has a ton of groomers, it's been treed enough in most areas so that you can ride your own line from top to bottom without ever getting funneled into a groomer. If you get here after a storm, you're pretty much guaranteed fresh lines all day long.

Flying into Spokompton and then driving is the best bet from east coast, Spokane air-fair is usually fairly decent and hotels/cost of living is pretty cheap in this area, they can't afford to buttrape you like other bigname resorts.

Oh, and if you want light powder your kinda stuck with Utah/Colorado. PNW gets primarily wet snow, with it getting lighter the further you go east. We have been known to have some really sick light pow days here, but most of the time it's middle of the road.
