Where to snowboard in Colorado with a beginner and intermediate

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are heading to Colorado this winter for a 6 week snowboarding adventure. She is a definite beginner and I am an intermediate snowboarder. She has only snowboarded on the east coast and feels comfortable with very basic carving (she has learned to carve quite nicely on the east coast ICE so I keep telling her the Colorado powder will be amazing). I've snowboarded Tahoe all my life and spent a season in Jackson Hole. Haven't been out west in 5 years though.

We have found some houses in Winterpark, Breck, and Steamboat that we like but can't decide on a location.

We have heard the following about each but don't know what to believe:

Winterpark is best for advanced skiiers. Easy to get to from Denver but can be boring.

Breckenridge is good for all because its big, but can be scary for beginners because of the big crowds on the slopes, easy to get to and lots to do when you aren't skiing.

Steamboat is great for beginners, can be boring for the more advanced but is the hardest destination to get to.

ANY AND ALL ADVICE WOULD BE GREAT!!
