Vail, Aspen, or Park City?

Jump to last reply

Rather than the normal "warm island" escape from Boston in February, my wife and I are considering a ski vacation out west. Having only been there once before (in the summer), I am not very familar with the advantages and disadvantages of various resort towns. I put Vail and Aspen, CO, and Park City, UT, out there mostly because those are the ones we hear people telling us about or visiting most often.

We would like to visit a spot where our room or condo is at our very near the skking itself, or the mountain base. Slopeside lodging would be great, but not mandatory. Basically, we want a nice room, but the closer the better. I will definitely ski while we are there.

My wife will do some skiing but also wants to visit a place where we can get out and enjoy other things.... shopping, dining, sightseeing, other winter activities. Also, with a chance of her being pregnant in February, skiing may be off her list entirely so having alternatives to enjoy is a big, big plus.

I am thinking the drive from the nearest major airport could be a factor, too. If there are two similar towns, but one is much closer or an easier route to Denver or Salt Lake City, that can be a factor.

For those who know these ski destinations or have been... what is your advice? Is one clearly better for skiing in February? Is one clearly a more vibrant town with more to do?

Also, feel free to suggest something else! I hear a lot about Aspen and Vail in CO and Park City in UT, but if there is a completely different ski resort/town that you think offers what we are looking for, toss it into the ring! I am all ears!

Thanjks so much!
