Default Iowans opinions on Places west to ride

Just got to thinking the other night about the upcoming season, planning west trips etc. was wondering everyones input on the best (Your opinion) places out west to ride and stay? I myself have only rode in the snowy's area. so far so good. maybe some input on Colorado or possible further west if anyone has been that far.
Just a thought and to get everyone back to thinking sleds

Thanks Everyone!

Snowies is where I ride. But will be hitting the flat tops in co this winter hopefully. We like to do lots of short trips rather than a couple long ones so snowies are easy for us.

I agree also, id rather have 5 or 6 smaller trips than 2 long ones. seems like its more fun and your not too sore afterwards. where do you stay?

I would say Snowies, but would like to go to Rabbit Ears and Flat Tops this year also. I agree on the short trips.

I go to the snowies or northern big horns. Like the big horns a little better cause there is less traffic on 90, you can ride from all the lodges,good powder is close to the lodges, don't have to worry about fuel, trails seem groomed better. dislike that it is 2 hrs futher for me, have to book rooms ahead earlier if going over a weekend. like that the snowies are closer, can get rooms in centennial at short notice. dislike having to trailer up every day, have to watch fuel in good powder areas, that some of the rooms are pretty dumpy in centennial, traffic is bad on 80, trails are rough at the end of the days ride back to the trailer. I have been to togotee area but didn't stay at the lodge. liked the area ,but the long distance to travel makes me shy away if there is good snow closer. I would like to try some areas in Colorado sometime too.

buff pass is not as crowded so I like it better, been going to snowies for 16 years now, it is getting too crowded for me, maybe the most rigs I have seen at buff is 6. if you can hit buff after a storm during the week you have the place to yourself. endless meadows and some climbing. have to search more for untouched powder in snowies but that can be a fun game also. need to hit the flattops&horns sometime. sierra madres is okay but a smaller area, can get in trouble there if you do not know that area. forgot about the grand mesa, longer drive but I need to go there.
