Default Skiing on Spring Break?

Wife and I taking kiddos skiing for the first time. Have narrowed down choices to colorado or new mexico. Went to Taos about 10 yrs ago and remember it didnt seem kid-friendly. Went to Red River a few times but that was over 20 yrs ago. Thought I'd check with the GS for some suggestions...kid friendly, good parking or ski-in/ski-out, decent lift prices and equip rental, etc?

Went skiing over the Holidays in Red River. Kids had fun. But honestly I'm just partial to the town of Red River.

For the price, you cant beat Monarch in Colorado. Kid friendly,cheap lift tickets and no long lines. Closest town is Salida. My favorite is Keystone but it is very pricey. Just my 2 cents!

I went to Taos last year and took my daughter. She was 2.5 at the time so she couldn't ski. We loved the place and their kids center was great. The mountain is more difficult and if it's your first time to ski it is advisable not to go to the top of the mountain as there is no "easy" way down. We are headed to Keystone in February for a week. I started skiing there when I was 9 (I'm 35 now). It is awesome for kids and families. Check out their kid's activities at www.keystoneresort.com.

Vail is the best everything, hands down, other than it is pricey! Staying in the village is very nice.

Copper is another good choice!

The further south in Colorado the cheaper.

Durango, Wolf Creek, etc. but you get what you pay for.



Are you driving or flying?

Picking up skis on the drive in is cheaper than getting them at the mountain.

Also buying lift tickets and arranging lessons can be bought cheaper ahead of time.

Do not skip the lessons for any first timers.

Angelfire for sure. It's family oriented, only about 11 hours from you. They'll take your kids skiing while mom and dad do their own thing or you can obviously stay with them too. Lodging isn't too expensive and the lift tickets were about $66 adult, kids 6 and under are free. I go there every year. I've done Breck, Wolf Creek, Red River and Taos. I like AF the best. Great mountain.

Anywhere you go on Spring Break is going to be crowded but Breck, Wolf Creek and Taos are crazy crowded on Spring Break. Angelfire is called the best kept secret in the southwest. Shhhhhh....

We loved Brighton,Utah - kids 12 and under skiid free but I will NEVER ski spring Break again, too many snowboarding punks. We just took our kids out of school for a few days until they were in HS when that was no longer cool. Good luck.

Ive been a number of times on Spring Break with the family. Winter Park was probably the best for what you are describing. Closely followed by Park City and Breckenridge. I was at Smuggler Notch last October but not for skiing obviously. Seemed like a nice place.

We've been skiing a few times during spring break.Heres the 4 we've gone to during spring breaks as a family. Wolf Creek is really nice and family friendly- just a bit of a daily drive, Squaw Valley is awesone and Buttermilk in Aspen Village were great.Breckenridge is just the epitome of a ski town in my estimation. Of the 4 during spring break Wolf Creek would be a solid win. The whole north lake Tahoe scene is wonderful and not too expensive. Aspen has great shopping and way too many Californians for my taste--- plus it runs a little more expensive. But Breck is extremely fun for the newer skiier. All things being equal I'd head to Breck without a doubt...

To answer your question, New Mexico is easily the least expensive if driving. Santa Fe, Angelfire and Apache are all good and very kid friendly.

Opinion on Tahoe. LOL @ Keegan. We don't need your opinion. That is one of the greatest places on earth. What part are you going to? I can give you some pointers.

My favorite resorts out west are as follows:

Breck
Kirkwood
Squaw
Sierra at Tahoe
Vail
Steamboat
Heavenly
Santa fe
Purgatory
Apache
Angel Fire

For apres ski/board Lake Tahoe is amazing. Casino's and Ultra Lounges. The area of South Lake Tahoe is extremely cool. Hevanly is not my favorite place to ride due to crowds, too many planker wankers and all the good blacks are bumped out from wanker traffic.

This is the place we rent our ski equipment from but they are only in Colorado.

You'll like it. It has everything...south lake or north shore? If you stay in southlake, ski kirkwood....best mountain up there and kind of off the beaten path so you don't get the traffic. Sierra has good spring skiing too, too many people though

Keystone is very kid friendly. Most of the mountain on the front is nice green runs and wide. A big mountain. Lots of trails. Quite a few mountains have narrow or limited green runs to the bottom so they get rough and skied out quick. The kids may like going all the way to the top with an easy way down as opposed to being stuck near the bottom.

Angel Fire is great for kids and beginners. Cheapest ski trip you can do, but about the minimum in services and mountain area that I would go to. For me, its a great 3 day (ski days) trip. For more days than that, I would go somewhere else. Also the easiest drive from TX.

Beaver Creek is the perfect place for the entire family, but look for the vacation to cost 50% more. You couldn't ski the whole place in 5 days plus your ticket is also good at Vail. For a week long trip, I would go there.

To the OP, make sure you factor in lift ticket prices before you decide. Some of these places are approaching $100 a day or more.

For a week long trip...Tahoe hands down. You could ride a different mountain each day. This can be done in Summit County as well. But he asked cheap so I think he means driving. NM is the best, closest, cheapest option. No reason to drive right past 6 resorts to go to Colorado. Even if you are hardcore blacks expert like myself, Taos. I have never been but it is top of the line for hardcore chutes, steeps, trees and above treeline.

x2. Grew up there. Used to have season passes every year to Kirkwood. Plenty of steep and deep. Take The Wall lift to the top and ski as far to the right as you can. Take off your skis and hike to the top of the rocks. Some cool chutes in there. Watched people ski "heart chute" a few times but I usually just did "sisters" Phenominal hill. Decent for the kiddos.

Ski Apache in Ruidoso is an excellant driving family trip. Shortest drive of all. We get there way early and there is a place where you can back your truck right up to a 4 ft snowbank right by the bunny hill. We throw out some lawn chairs, a cooler and a grill. Slopeside fajitas and cheep beer. water and soft drinks for the kids. Easy to meet back. You always know where to meet. Ski in/out to the truck.

That, I have noticed. Some are @ $60 and some are over $100 per adult.
Not too terribly concerned about what I pay for lift tickets but do want to get as much bang for my buck as possible.
If I can avoid renting a car, get a ski-in ski-out and not get killed on restaurant food, then I'll pay a lil more at the lift.

My knees aren't what they used to be so I'm not really looking for "steep and deep". Just enough room for me to crash and burn and not hurt anybody, besides myself.
First and foremost, I want the most enjoyable time for my kiddos.

Done alot of NM and CO - both great but New Mexico snow can be hit or miss in March on the green slopes (except for Taos - not real kid friendly). Summit County in Colorado has all your looking for with Breck, Keystone, Copper, Vail (not A Basin - not kid friendly).

Oh man, if you are flying forget about NM. It's for driving. Tahoe and Summit county is where you wanna go. They both have shuttles from the airport. Keystone and Breck have good ski in/out options. Keystone is very family friendly and has awesome night skiing.

Summit County is great. Lots of different resorts all within a 30 minute drive, and with that there is a lot of free buses that run all the time and can take you to different resorts depending on where you are staying.

I grew up spending every Christmas or spring break skiing Vail. It is the ultimate in Colorado, but you will pay a premimum. I went to Steamboat Springs every year of college and that would be my first choice. I haven't been in 15 years so ALOT may have changed but the croweds were small and the price was decent.

Yeah if you're flying, I'd do Breck. When you buy tickets for Breck, you get Keystone and another one included in that. Breck is HUGE man, like literally 4 mountains if I remember correctly. It's awesome though.

As mentioned in earlier post - if you're flying forget about NM, it would be a pain. You might want to check out Salt Lake City. Easy to fly in/out of...you can stay up in the mountains if you want, or in the city (less expensive). There's a bunch of spots to ski up Big Cottonwood or Little Cottonwood canyons or you can drive over to Park City to get the full-on tourist/Colorado-type ski experience!

telluride is another option....fly into montrose and catch a shuttle up to the village if you want to stay at a ski in/ski out place....take the gondola to town and you can walk everywhere in town.....I liked it up there too...only 2.5 hour flight to montrose also
