If you decide to go the Breck route picking up a pass may be a good choice in this situation

And come back again later in the year to mitigate the cost of the pass.   The Breck/Keystone/A-basin pass would be perfect, and would keep you from getting bored with the limited runs available at any one area on your first trip:

I noted in your OP you are planning on arriving on the 23rd.  T-day isn't until the 28th, so I'd guess the slopes won't be horribly crowded until Thursday, or Friday.  Maybe someone who's skied Breck/Keystone/A-basin the days leading up to T-day can comment, but I bet it doesn't get really crazy until Friday-Sunday.  I just don't see many folks booking a full week T-day trip, for the reasons mentioned throughout this thread.

The solution to me seems logical. You have blocked off Thanksgiving week + five more to go to India. Use the timeframe you have blocked but go to India first and ski the last week before returning to Indiana.

Many experienced skiers have told you the odds are long against Thanksgiving skiing being worth the trouble or expense. If you decide to ignore this advice I can only recommend extreme flexibility. You won't know where any snow is until the last minute so reserve a car but not lift tickets or lodging. Be willing to drive 4 hours to Wolf Creek from Denver or Targhee from Salt Lake if necessary.
