Hi everyone, I need your help.
I am going to Vegas 1/8/12 thru 1/16/12 and figured while I was out West (I live in Connecticut) I may as well do a couple of days skiing before and after; want some good powder as the EC hardpack has me down.
If you wanted to go skiing 1/6 and 1/7 as well as 1/17 and 1/18, what would you do? I could hitup Tahoe, SLC, or CO. SLC looks like the best value, CO is reliable for planning purposes (thinking Vail, Breck, or Copper), Tahoe looks pretty in the pics. I have never been to SLC or Tahoe, I used to goto Vail alot when I was younger (I dream of those back bowls!).
I was thinking CO en route there (reliable and its early season), SLC omw back (drive up Vegas, go skiing, fly home). How reliable is SLC for snow in early Jan?
My great fear is always snow, early season is treacherous. CO is reliable, SLC? Tahoe?
I generally ski AM open till PM close and I'll be solo so night life doesn't matter as much (I'm usually too tired to do anything anyways).
I can afford it, but saving budget is always a positive :)
