I recommend Telluride, Rob.

You can fly right into the Telluride airport and then be shuttled to a nearby Hotel/Condo. For four people you can get really nice multiple bedroom condos. They're on the pricy side but if you can afford it, they're worth the money.

Also, the mountain is within walking distance of all the Hotels and condos in Telluride. There is also a free gondola that will take you to Moutain Village for the slopes on that side of the mountain. Also, you could look into lodging in Moutain Village instead where you will literally have the slopes for view from the windows.

I'm an avid snowboarder and I can personally guarantee that Telluride's slopes will blow those Wyoming slopes out of the water.

And here is a direct link the the trail map:

Click the icons to highlight where the mountain is groomed and to get real photos of the trails.

Hope that helps

Jeezy,

Thnaks for your opion. I have seen the Telluride website. It's really great outdoor, I think! The mountain / slopes are bigger and longer then in Jackson Hole. But, I noticed the rates for the lodges/hotels overthere, and they are really high! Is there no motel available, which has 2 bedrooms, Internet and a hot ube for a smaller budget? ( we don't need so much luxury, al we need is a fridge, for the beer, hot tub, and a steakhouse around the corner)
This all, for a 1 week escaping from the marriage and kidz ;-)
Kind regards, many thanks in advanced,

Rob

Hi Gal,

Well, I work in Amsterdam (You have probably have heard lot's of stories about it) and I live nearbij Alkmaar. That the 'lowland' area in Holland, were the land is below sea level, about a 15 feet, I guess.

Eindhoven is in the lower parts of Holland.

We have been too Janckson Hole / WY last january, it was great, nice people (friendly) and lots of powder. You can't compare it with Austria orso. Next january, some locals, have advised us, to go to Colorado, Breckenridge or up high, Steamboat. Probably we will be going to Breckenridge and hopefully we shall have a good time just like Jackson Hole.

Grtz, Rob

Around most of the ski resorts, the only big thing to do is to ski around the ski resort for the most part.

Of course, most ski resorts also have the town nearby. From the Winter Park base, you can take one of many shuttles to the actual town 2 miles away, and there's also a village at the base of the resort. (In town there are many steakhouses, so you will be happy )

Winter Park is FABULOUS! I have skied there (and Copper with the 2-way pass) SO MANY TIMES! It's a huge ski area, trails everywhere. It's pretty organized as well. There are beginner areas, intermediate areas, etc. on their own parts of the mountain. In the middle of the mountain, the trails kind of mix in a free-for-all way, but the diversity is nice!

You'll have a great time in Colorado!

I have been to Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Keystone resorts for skiing. I snowboarded my first time at Breckenridge and had a blast. I am looking forward to snowboarding at Copper Mountain and Keystone the next time in CO.
You cannot go wrong with those resorts.
Have a great trip!!

No doubt, it's a beautiful area. The Grand Tetons. Yellowstone nearby.

In Colorado, Breckenridge is about 1 hours drive from Denver. Vail is about 2 hours. These are both along the I-70 freeway.

Steamboat is located in north/central Colorado. It's off the beaten track. From Denver it's probably about three hours drive. You must take I-70 west, and then one of the local highways north.
