Need help planning a ski trip

I'm interested in going skiing - went last year to Breckenridge for the first time and I'm hooked. Problem is it looks like it will be a solo trip for me and I'm not sure where to go/stay/etc. I need a place that would be close to the airport as I'm already having to fly from Miami/Ft. Laud which is long enough (If there's a good shuttle service from the airport it would help I think). Not looking forward to driving in snow so would prefer to stay in a location where driving isn't really necessary. Would like to be able to do this without going broke so cost is a factor. Still a beginner so need to have nice amount of blues and greens. Would like to go end of February or beginning of March preferably. I'm a teacher and have spring break first week of April but I'm pretty sure that's hit or miss when it comes to skiing =/ Any ideas?

Any of the big resorts have shuttle van services from Denver Airport, no need for a car. Any of them are fine, with a big variety of terrain. Or if you go to Utah, everything is pretty close to Salt Lake City.

The first week in April is usually fine at any of the resorts higher in altitude. I've skiied in mid-April in the east some years. I have been to Copper in late April and they closed the place with tons of snow to ski on. I have also been to Squaw Valley in late May with tons of snow.

Just Ski, not to worry.

I suggest you stay at Chateau Apres in Park City http://www.chateauapres.com/ . You could either get a cheap room or stay in the dorm.

Get a shuttle from the airport. You are then next to the lifts in Park City and you can jump on the free buses to Deer Valley and The Canyons.
