Default Good place for snowboarding trip

Hey,
I'm looking to plan a snowboard trip this winter (Late December, possibly the week between Christmas and New Years) with my parents, brother, and a friend. We'd like a place in either Colorado, Utah, or Montana. Are there any really nice resorts that aren't the big name stuff and aren't super popular/crowded/expensive lodging? We all snowboard and are intermediates on smaller hills in Minnesota. I expect to be able to handle the greens and blues out west and I'm not real sure about the blacks so we don't need anything super technical or steep, but a little bit of a challenge is welcome. We like riding terrain parks so a good park set up would be nice. We won't be going off any 40+ foot kickers but smaller jumps and intermediate boxes and rails are cool, nothing too extreme. It would also be nice to ride a bit of powder. Any suggestions on places to check out? Price is definitely an issue.

The week between Xmas and New Years is like the most crowded 7 days on snow in the northern hemisphere.

With that in mind, I'd go to Montana, find a nice epic small spot (like Wolf Creek or CB), or pick better dates.

To me, and its just me, waiting in lift lines is not snowboarding.

Thanks for the tip! If we decide to go the sometime early January, what places would you recommend then?

Montana would be cheapest. Probably rent a house that would come out to less than $200 per person for the week.

We'd probably only be staying 2 or 3 nights but good idea

I would choose Utah among your choices. Had a great time there during winter 2009. And I'm planning to come back this year.
