Looking to schedule a last minute trip out west for next week, and looking for as much fresh powder as possible. It seems to me that when you take into account current basedepths, open terrain, and quality powder potential, Grand Targhee and Whistler top the list for next week. I'm guessing some of the PNW resorts (Baker? Crystal? Bachelor?) would qualify as well. Normally I would be considering Alta/Bird, but their basedepths don't cut it just yet. If lots of fresh powder skiing (without hitting too many submerged rocks/trees) is your number 1 priority, where would you go next week? I've been to (and love) both - I'm trying to get a feel for which would have better conditions next week...
Where to powderchase week of 12/9, Grand Targhee or Whister?

Im going on a 8 day road trip exactly a week from today... For US Rockies, Grand Targhee and Sun Valley. On the west coast Mammoth is killing it.
All in all, British Columbia is off the chain, so that'd be your best bet. I would go there but 24 hours of driving is a little long for early season.
P.S. I heard Jackson Hole and Big Sky are opening up alot more terrain very soon. If it ends up being a considerable amount, ill have an epic and easy trip hitting Targhee, JHole, Big Sky...
