Never gone skiing / snowboarding and want to go this year! Live in Texas so I’m looking for a an easy place to get to that’s relatively cheap and has a decent amount of restaurants / things to do. Any resort recommendations?

I recommend Sun Valley in Idaho - there are actually two mountains, one that is really entirely for beginners and one that can support beginners but has Blue Square and Black Diamond slopes, too, and both the SV resort and the town of Ketchum are very cute, offer good dining spots and bars, have good shopping available, etc. The SV resort also has a good spa for your sore muscles, and there’s an outdoor skating rink that’s fun. The lift tickets aren’t nearly as expensive as Vail or Aspen in CO or Park City in UT.

You’d fly into SUN (the code for Hailey).

SLC- depending on where you’re at you can get to multiple resorts. Park City, Solitude, Brighton, Snowbird or Alta (ski only resort) are all solid and have varying levels.

Deer Valley (ski only) too

Come out to ski the East where you can learn to ski the hard stuff instead of fluffy powder ;)

Taos in NM, although I wouldn't say that's a beginner's mountain and there's not much to do outside of ski and apres (sorry, not helpful!). In CO, Winter Park, Vail, Steamboat, and Aspen/Snowmass all are well-developed resorts with plenty of beginner's terrain and activities. None are cheap I guess? But Aspen and Vail will be pricey, if we're defining tiers. There are tons of others.

Close to Texas…the only place coming to mind is Switzerland. Kidding, look literally right above you, Colo has some of the best snow

Alberta Canada. Base yourself in Calgary, the Banff area is 90 minutes away and has some of the east mountains in the world

Copper mountain in Colorado was very nice in my opinion, not too many people when we went and it’s not like Breckinridge where it’s so packed and expensive.

Cooper was nice because there were easy slopes for beginners and harder ones for more advance individuals

Skiing is not cheap.

Lols thank you so helpful
