Sure, you might get lucky and hit a storm, but if you're planning this far in advance, I'd go somewhere where I KNOW the conditions will be good. The chances of hitting a storm aren't great, and areas like Utah/Colorado/PNW aren't always going to be warm enough to soften up the snow, so there's a good chance that you'll be skiing refrozen crud (not fun). That's why I'd lean towards Mammoth or Tahoe, where, if you don't get a nice dump, there's a great chance that it'll be warm enough to get some great corn (which, IMO, is almost as much fun to ski in as powder).
