The board has not figured out pricing as of yet. What I have is the ballpark amount.
If you are looking to be pampered, than Steamboat is the ski trip for you.

American Airlines departs O'hare at 9:30 AM, lands Hayden 11:20 AM, return flight leaves 12:25 PM ( not too early in case you partied too hard welcoming in the new year) and lands back at O'hare 4:10 PM.
Arriving Hayden (20 miles from Steamboat) at 11:20 should have the Shuttle bus rolling by 12:00, at your condo by 12:30 and you skiing down to the Gondola by 1:00 PM.
SKI INN (yes that's the name of the Lodging) is located directly under the Silver Bullet gondola. Ski Inn has an access trail to the main slopes. The trail enters the mountain slopes at about[masked] yards above the gondola
