split the costs and hopefully shred some pow?

I'd lodge in Grand Junction and get up early to drive the way in the early morning, as $300/night is too much for me. The main gist of any trip would be to road trip and stop in the national parks and monuments along the way. I did this once and it was pretty good, solo.
I normally bc ski, but the local SC got rid of that. The Colorado high route would appeal to me, but most don't do that. Love to ski some peaks, too, but as cold as it gets, it might be risky with as little expedition gear as I have.

Having nice lodgings is great to have but it's the other things that make for a great vacation.
If you want to ski Aspen, lodge in Glenwood Springs. Easily as inexpensive at Grand Junction and a heck of a lot closer.
The 92 extra miles are worth the $45/night I'd get at M6.
