resorts or backcountry?

I made a decision a while back - most resorts are an overpriced places, and the future of my skiing should be in the backcountry. But, I was close by, and this was a part of my Colorado job interview. I had to see what my closest future ski area will be like.
This was my 2nd visit to this ski area, I visited Telluride ski resort 4 years ago during Thanksgiving weekend (most of the mountain was closed). So, l had to try again - I liked it despite the horrible price for one day ski pass of 98$, expensive food (but it was so delicious), and a super expensive hotel. Should I mention that during my first ski visit I was freezing in my car overnight?

2010/11 winter update - still skiing in Telluride, but much more in the backcountry.
