I did a quick search on Epic for advice on the best places to ski during Christmas week, saw a few nominations for Utah (which I love), but didn't see anyone happen to mention Steamboat. Does anyone have an opinion on whether that would be a good choice, all things considered? We know it won't be cheap, but we're thinking we want to do a Christmas trip this year and we've been wanting to try Steamboat. We're upper intermediates so we don't need any extreme terrain, but I'd hate to fly all the way from the east coast to there and not find much open. Of course no one knows the weather, but what is your sense of what's typically open at Steamboat that week? Is there someplace to find some stats like what percentage of their terrain has been open that week on average for the past 5 years?
Any advice would be appreciated!
