Where to Ski now through March 7

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I found a bit more than 1 week of free time (now - March 7) and I want to ski! I live Northwest NJ and we were blessed with abundant snowfall followed by gorgeous days for most of winter. Unfortunately, its 45 and raining... Now, Mountain Creek is just that; a creek. Smooth transition for their water park I guess.

Where would you recommend to go from now through March 7? I have been to Alta, Aspen/Snowmass, and Steamboat in the past. I would return to utah in a heart beat, just curious what other places have great conditions and $$$ friendly. I will be traveling alone.

Thanks,

Taras

What do you like to ski?  Groomers, bumps, steep, backcountry?  Green, blue, black?

Do you just care about skiing, or are there other factors that are important to you - apres, easy access from the airport, ...?

 

I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything, but it's difficult for people to answer your question without knowing more about what you're looking for.

Pretty much everywhere out west with the exception of NM is doing well right now.  Reno's cheap?  Lodging is cheap in Jackson, getting there might not be?

Thanks for the quick responses!

I am an expert skier, I love high speed carving with GS skis, but in NJ use SL racestocks to get the most turns. My 12 days in Alta left me loving powder as well, but I tend to stay away from the bumps. I rather not do much hiking (backcountry) since I am headed up alone, but if it's good, I'm sure I will find some people to tag along with. Off the mountain activites do not matter, I really just want to ski!
