I'm looking for some advice on my best options for a 2 week vacation(rent a large house) with family (13 people) in early August near a minyan (including shabbos) that is driving distance from NJ (up to 5 hr drive).

The problem I'm running into is any option near a shabbos minyan is pricey(catskills) and options that are more reasonably priced are not near a shabbos minyan (poconos).

What are some other options or other leads?

What do you recommend Vail vs Banff for summer vacation?
Usually do the Swiss Alps but this year it's not so practical...

There are some great trip reports on Banff (including Danís), are there any trip reports for Vail?

Vail attractions are closer, has regular Chabad.
Banff attractions are further. No minyan. But closer resembles the alps
