Hi, I am looking for recommendations for the best spring skiing that will be available in North America (preferably US, but Whistler may be ok) during mid-late to late May this year. The earliest skiing date would likely be May 17th and I would like to ski for a minimum of 5 days. I am an advanced intermediate to beginning advanced skier (approximately level 7) and would be looking for skiing comparable to Breckenridge or Vail. I like long cruisers but also like steep groomed runs, as well. I don't mind ungroomed runs unless they are moguled out and steep...I am just starting to get into bumps. I don't currently do any tree skiing and therefore it is a non-issue for me. I don't care if there is a fancy resort town attached to the mountain. Cheap lodging and/or camping would be nice. I don't care about the night life. I am looking for purely the best skiing experience that I can get for 5 days in mid-late May this year. Just to be clear, I am looking for lift serviced skiing.
I have read that normally Mammoth would be a good bet, but with the horrible snow year they have had, I doubt it is a viable option. Whistler looks like it will close about May 18th, so it probably isn't an option. Mt. Bachelor looks like it may be an option. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
