I've organised a trip for the last 5 years with varying numbers between 12 - 22. We have, so far, always gone to France, always had a catered chalet and have generally gone to big centres (3VL, Paradiski, Chamonix) to allow for the mixed ability of the group (mainly skiers from nervous blue to happy on black and beyond).
Now I'm thinking of moving the party Stateside and was looking for some suggestions of where to go and what the price difference really is.
We normally spend £1000 per head inc. all transport, catered chalet, lift pass and ski hire, what is a reasonable budget to aim for across the pond?
A lot of questions I know but would give me a starting point for the 2013 trip!

Salt lake city area does give you a lot of options.
Stay in a SLC area hotel, rent 2/3 minivans and drive to any of several large resorts (45 to 60 mins).
Rent a house on the park city bus route (shuttle from airport about $45 ew), and have a free bus ride to any of the three ski areas in PC. Someone in the party could join Costco warehouse club to get discounted lift tickets.
Trencher....if I'm a Costco member in the UK do you think that translates to the US? I'll have to look!
Where did you end up deciding on?
