Help me decide on a quiet but accessible winter retreat destination for snow play?

I am researching a wintery retreat for a group of friends (8 or less). We live in the DC metro area but are willing to fly for this retreat anywhere within the USA or drive up to 4.5 hours from here. Place should be within a 3 hour drive of an airport. I want a place that has the right mix of isolated quiet feel close to nature and God with CC/snowshoe trails but also standard downhill skiing with lifts nearby for those who want to do that. We'd be renting a cabin. Aspen and Mt. Washington both meet my ideas for this kind of place but I want to find a destination I've not been to before. Can you recommend some specific towns I should consider based on your experience?
