Manitou Springs, CO. Also Breck and Telluride!

Taos JUST started allowing snowboarders, so I kind of have a perpetual bone to pick with that place... It is a good town and some pretty rad skiing though, if you live in NM.

Somewhere in the San Juans would be nice. Telluride if I was rich or maybe Silverton or Ouray. The scenery and the drive through the mountains reminds me of a little Switzerland, and you're really right in the middle of huge mountains. Another one I like is June Lake, California--which is just sort of a small village on a beautiful lake in the Sierra north of Mammoth Lakes which is close enough to go skiing and go to dinner, but is quiet in the winter and you're close to some of the best backpacking and hiking in the central Sierras.

British Columbia has nice spots too--Pemberton just outside Whistler, or places like Nelson or Kimberly all are great mountain towns.

Lake Tahoe, CA/NV.... No matter where I roam, Tahoe will always be home (lived there full-time for 10 years, best 10 years of my life!). Definitely no place like home!

Can't forget New Paltz and maybe Saugerties. Glens Falls, Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake, Lake Placid, Old Forge and Ticonderoga are Adirondack communities that would work. Plattsburgh is very close as well.
