Here in Colorado you can ski the many resorts and have a winter vacation just like everyone else.  Or you can tap into the amazing adventure of backcountry skiing. 

Its popularity is growing quickly as people realize just how good it is. 

“I would rather ski one long deep powder run in the backcountry than spend an entire day at a resort” is a common expression among enthusiast.  Other common sayings are: “this powder is blower dude” “sick turns bro” and “is it recording? cause here I come.” 

Of course learning the interesting vernacular is not a prerequisite but the desire to have an amazing time is.
