Yes, much better to head inland for the Rockies, better skiing and better snow as well.

Scooter said:CarveMan â€“ wouldnâ€™t it have been fairer to say that you think PC shits on Vail as opposed to Utah vs Colorado? Personally I reckon whilst the areas bring certain things to the table (steeps, trees, mix of runs, setup, town etc.) the bottom line is that weather/conditions are going to factor as a major part of the overall experience so given the vagaries of mother nature that in my mind negates a lot of the argument which is better than which â€“ they will be what they are on a particular day/week/month/season
Scooter said:Hey tbnext - Kids certainly do change thingsIf it was me I would have chosen Jackson but alas wasnt even considered due to the kids (have had others say the terrain wasnt great for kids) but then Crystal has raved about it and has two young kids so just goes to show how subjective it can be. My two have done well this trip (done everything except the double blacks) so maybe next trip I should just consider myself
Talking towns, the town of Steamboat was one of the major considerations for us. Real town with real people and has been great (the kids do the trip to the Library once a week and then go to Lyons drug for an ice cream etc.).
Sunny outside ATM so no doubt great out there.

I've got a wedding at Niagara-On-The-Lake in September with a 4 day pitstop in Vegas for the bucks party. Best I've found so far is about $2300 on both V and Qantas, although Qantas is on the A380 so I'd be leaning more towards that option.

Let me just start this by saying, No I'm not Nadeals ! BUT if you want cheap Air Pacific have some low prices (from $942 return Syd/LA in September). Yes I know their planes are old, but on the plus side their safety record is still good and you get Qantas FF points for the flights. Southwest Airlines will get you to Buffalo for $360 return and a car from there. That will save you $1000 all up.
OR if you really don't like Air Pacific you can still fly to LA with V Australia for $1625 + $360 with Southwest = $1985, saves you $315.
Curto said:I flew with V in January/February which was only $1100 return to LA so it's a bit of a shock to see the price double in 2 months!!!
Curto said:The V flights unfortunately don't fit in with the dates that I want. I want to fly out on the 15th and return on the 29th and the cheapest flight there is about $2300. :-(
I'm much better than NAdeals, I not only find deals to North America but also Japan, New Zealand and Europe. Maybe I should change my name,skidown said:I am suspicious of Born2Ski, he spends too much time skiing and lives in Qld... That sounds like naDeals to me
