I know--we would LOVE Hill. Had a friend based there and he always bragged about making it to Snowbasin in 20 minutes. There's always the option of Powder Mountain, too. We'll see what happens. I think he gets to start the process of looking at his next assignment this summer.
In the meantime, we're glad to at least be in SoCal where we can get to Mammoth fairly easily, and Tahoe, too. A lot better than the 12 years we were in the eastern time zone.
