I have been to Alta, Snowbird, Jackson, Targhee, Park City, Brighton, Solitude, Deer Valley, and The Canyons. I would love to check out some new areas - but I have of course many tried and true spots at a lot of these places I have been. The Wasatch and Summit County, Colorado has been kind of in a meh season - but as you have been seeing these past couple days, things are getting better in Summit County.
10 day forecast is most favorable for tetons/northern Montana (Whitefish), but its still a 10 day forecast and anything can happen. But NOAA.gov and Weather.com kind of agrees on things being moist...in Montana that week. But really, where do you see this season being good....6 days from now?
