with a group ALWAYS stay on snow. Travelling to the snow each day is such a pain in the arse.

With US$20 lift tickets, Copper Mt Colorado is the best value resort anywhere. Accommodation is also inexpensive(ski in ski out hotel rooms from US$146(AUD$200) which can sleep 4 people, but the catch is most of the 1st week in January 2017 is already booked out. Those in the know book early, very early.

It’s never been cheaper to fly to the USA with fares as long as $699 return to the west coast.

From next month, you can book domestic US flights from 9 different west coast airports(3 in San Fran & 5 in LA alone) to Denver from US$59.
