Nice that you are that close to a mammouth amount of snow. ;)  (It is cool that you (similar to many others) are close to a nice ski area.:cool I need to travel at least 2.5 hours for any decent skiing and 3-4 hours for better conditions.)

So yeah, I'd love to do the Aspen get together. Other 'hope I cans' would be get back to Whistler/BC, do a family weekend at White Pass (never been), and Schweitzer. Big Sky is on the check list as well.

Likely:
Crested Butte
Steamboat
Aspen

Hope to make it happen:
Jackson Hole/Grand Targhee
Alta
Taos
Silverton

Long shot but on my radar:
Sun Valley (haven't been since I was little)
Bogus Basin (my childhood home mountain and where I raced)
Telluride

LOL, the funny thing is, Mammoth is a 6 hour drive from San Diego.  I can fly to SLC faster, so I end up staying with my great aunt a few times a season in Sandy.  But Mammoth is my home mountain.  I love it and will make that awful drive at least 10 trips a season.  My dream is to move up there or to Tahoe for a few seasons once my wife retires, as I can work from anywhere.

The actual lack of Tahoe response on here says a lot about the last few years. Most people must be pretty reluctant to book ahead and I really don't blame them.

I skipped getting a Sierra at Tahoe pass this year, sorta glad I did but I plan on getting back there more next year.

Oooh. Can I justify a third pass? $199 is a screamin' deal.

If we hold a Gathering at Schweitzer it will likely include Red and Whitewater...Wanna be a guide?

I'd come too!

Snowbasin for inbounds.

 

Backcountry:

This place....near Finndog's domain

Also have one near Wolfie, but it requires summer scouting before a winter committment.

Mica Basin

I'd like to do a Crested Butte/Telluride/Silverton Combo( with an option to go down to Taos).

 

I've never skied anything south of Aspen in CO or anything in NM but always wanted to.... so maybe 2016 is the year?

I'd be happy skiing locally with an average Tahoe snowfall next year Thumbs Up

Somewhere near Rabbit Ears, we (I) assume. The trees are very widely spaced, and it looks like the pine beetle has extracted a substantial toll. Last time I went over Rabbit Ears (6 years ago) I was amazed that nearly all the trees had turned from green to red. Dead trees approached 100%.

No on all accounts.  And sorry @COBillsFan, hate to inform you that place doesn't exist anymore... wiped off the face of the earth by a massive tsunami last year.  All that remains is a barren expanse and a Taco Bell, move along and look elsewhere.  In fact, please remove the photo so my emotions aren't tortured by reminders of the devastation...

Cooley, you’re on the wrong side of the resort, look north.

BC tacos are quite appealing, glad to know I won’t have to eat freeze dried stroganova after sloggin’ out there.

Have the Epic & RMSP+, but didn't get to Copper or Crested Butte this year. Hope to hit all the areas next year--especially Grouse at Beaver Creek.

 

Utah trip should include Deer Valley plus other areas I haven't been to forever--Park City, Canyons (was Park West when I was there), Alta, and Snowbird.)'

 

Aspen/Snowmass trip will depend on when it falls and whether it conflicts with Deer Valley Freestyle World Cup.

 

Want to get to Telluride, but don't think that will happen next season.
