Im struggling to understand why on earth you would include New England on this list but back to the point.... I've only skied wyoming of the few places you've named and that was at jackson hole. One of my best skiing expierences ever. Super huge resort with alot of vert and deep light snow on some of the most diverse awsome terrain ever. I dont see how you could really go wrong with colorado or utah but im sure there are some cons to them. Another place I would suggest is British Columbia up in Canada if thats an option. You got Vancouver as a major city which is close to whistler and a bunch of smaller resorts around town. If your not into being in a major city then revelstoke is a huge mountain with alot of terrain that could be alot of fun.
Good luck with the next 10 years of your life buddy, sounds like they'll be great regardless to where you choose
