I just planned a trip with some friends to snow mass and we are pretty excited. We leave December 12th and are staying for 7 nights. We wanted to go right after exams and decided to go right before the Christmas 'Wave'. I have tried looking up conditions this early in the season on different websites but I couldn't find anything... I looked up when the mountains have opened up for the past 4 years and they have been opening up roughly late November and Highlands opening early December. Basically my main questions are:
i)Will we be skiing some nice conditions when we are going?
ii) Will I be able to hit the highlands up this early in the season? (based on your experience)
Thanks for your time,
