trying to find the perfect combination of (somewhat) affordable, good mountain and good town (for partying, etc.).

would breck/vail fit the bill? park city? SLT? so many options but the one that has a nice combo and is somewhat easy to get to from NYC will win out...

thanks guys.

no on tahoe, i just cancelled my trip, the snow is terrible this year. i can't say anything on utah as i haven't ridden there, but co is great this year. i like vail resorts; vail, beaver creek, breckenridge, keystone, & a-basin, (despite being a monopoly). probably won't be the cheapest you can find, but can give you the biggest bang for your buck -imo.

Tahoe is Currently a Mountain Bike Mecca (In January!?!), so scratch them this year.....for the time being. I would say Park City or Breck are your best bets, with Colorado getting more reliable snow at this point. Breck is a better Party than Vail, but I actually like Vail's mountain better. There are always Aspen or Jackson Hole if you can lay-down the change.

PC is easier to get to from the airport than is Breck/Vail.

don't know if it's cheaper but if you do the right pass you can do breck & vail on the same trip
